President Obama, please meet President Karzai

The Associated Press reports that President Obama apparently just spoke to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the first time. Ever.

Ronald Neuman, former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan under President Bush, speculates: "Holding off on a presidential call may be no more than a sensible decision to wait until the president really knows what he wants to say on crucial issues."

No hurry, Mr. President; it's not like the United States has deployed tens of thousands of American G.I.s to fight a war within President Karzai's borders or anything.

(Note: I know I promised I would shy away from matters of foreign policy. But this is just too ridiculous to ignore.)
