Vote Counting in Afghanistan

I thought that the U.S. position on the Afghan elections was a bit harsh (utterly corrupt, the US can't deal with a regime without authority, and this is affecting our lack of interest in sending more troops, etc.).  Sometimes I thought the Obama administration was trying to impose Chicago election practice purity on the Afghans!  This story on Peter Galbraith and his role for the UN, and his dismissal (couldn't happen to a nicer guy) explains some of it. Amusing and amazing how some very important things in the world have to do with one imprudent, low level,  individual.
