Romney: Afghan tensions Obama's fault

March 18, 2012 at 12:53 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, March 18 (UPI) -- Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Sunday the high tensions in Afghanistan are examples of failed leadership from President Obama.

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has accused the United States of hindering the investigation into the shooting deaths of 16 Afghan civilians allegedly at the hands of an American soldier, and Romney said the heightened crisis is Obama's fault in an interview on "Fox News Sunday."

"I think it's very plain to see that the conditions are not going very well," the former Massachusetts governor said. "This president simply does not have experience in tough situations -- not negotiating experience, not leadership experience -- and it's showing once again the result that one might have expected from lack of leadership."

Romney said if he was president, he would "exercise leadership" and talk daily to Karzai in an attempt to make sure the U.S. mission in Afghanistan ends successfully.
