Sacked envoy Peter Galbraith accuses UN of 'cover-up' on Afghan vote fraud

The top American in the UN mission in Afghanistan was fired yesterday after refusing to take part in what he called "a cover-up" of fraud in the Afghan election.

"I think it's astonishing that the United Nations would dismiss an official because he was concerned about fraud in a UN-funded and UN-supported election," Mr Galbraith told The Times yesterday from his farmhouse in Vermont.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Mr. Galbraith apparently doesn't understand is that the "re-appointment" of Karzai to do the US's and NATO's bidding in Afghanistan couldn't be jeopardized by something so trivial as blatant and massive election fraud.
