I watched both the joint news conference and Karzai’s address on U.S.-Afghanistan relations and this is my 2 cents: I was awe-striken by the difference in Karzai’s speech patterns between the 2 events. While at the podium with Obama at the White House, decked out in his home country regalia, Karzai spoke hesitantly, displaying micro-stutters at beginning of each utterance, giving the impression his English left much to be desired having all the makings of a goat herder , hesitatant, ah ah ah-ing, etc., compared to his speech at Georgetown University. Hat’s off! Karzai seemed like a new man. A man whose speech was unhesitant, sure-footed, and very much like a seasoned American. What’s Up With That????!!!
(I know his family lives in Baltimore…duh!)
