What with Karzai burning us in the media all week, I imagine the Administration now regrets posting this on the WH Flickr stream just before he got fired up. Such a shame, too. The bogus symbolism is perfect — offering two leaders “seeing eye-to-eye” and “breaking bread” together.
With Karzai’s rants still ringing, I look at this now and imagine the guy in the white gloves taking him away — at least, immediately after he takes his basket back.
