US congratulates Karzai on 'historic' re-election

The United States congratulated Hamid Karzai on his "historic" re-election as Afghan president and looks forward to working with him, the American embassy in Kabul said in a statement Monday.

The statement also welcomed the decision by the country's Independent Election Commission (IEC) not to hold a run-off election this weekend after Karzai's only challenger, Abdullah Abdullah, pulled out of the contest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable.
