Deja Vu All Over Again

KABUL (AP) — President Hamid Karzai's challenger withdrew Sunday from next weekend's runoff election, effectively handing the incumbent a victory but raising doubts about the credibility of the government.

A divided country is torn apart by a stolen election characterized by massive fraud. The incumbent has done little to inspire confidence in a time of national crisis, and the vast majority of the citizenry have a very low opinion of President Karzai, pictured below.

There are parallels between Karzai and South Vietnam's fist president, Ngo Dinh Diem. But the comparisons end there because the CIA is no longer involved in coups and assassinations, right? Right?
