Iran Paying Afghan President's Chief of Staff

So now we have Karzai's chief of staff accepting money from Iran !

Well you know what is next, Afghanistan will receive a few Billion Dollars from the U.S. for funding the War Against the U.S.,Just like it is done in Pakistan !

Afghan President Hamid Karzai's chief of staff has been receiving millions of dollars in cash payments from Iran, the New York Times reported Saturday.

The advisor, Umar Daudzai, briefs Karzai each morning and is known for pushing anti-Western policies, the Times said.

Citing unnamed Afghan and Western officials in Kabul, the newspaper reported Iran had been using its influence in attempt to weaken Afghan ties to the U.S. and NATO, as well as further its own interests in the country.

The payments Daudzai receives are deposited into a secret fund that he and Karzai have used to pay the country’s lawmakers, tribal leaders and Taliban commanders to secure their loyalty, the report said.

"It’s basically a presidential slush fund," one Western official told the paper. "Daudzai’s mission is to advance Iranian interests."
