Afghan president accused of treason

Presidential challenger Abdullah Abdullah has accused incumbent Hamid Karzai of treason and called for a criminal probe into alleged election fraud.  College of Communication Professor Nick Mills, who has know Karzai since the 1980s when Mills ran BU’s Afghan Media Project, says such language borders on insurrection.

“He wants Karzai out of the palace even before the investigation is complete, even before a runoff election.  The quicker the election commission rules, the better.”
