Last week, Taliban militants stormed into the Serena Hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, killing nine including children. The Serena was one of most heavily secured buildings in Kabul. The attack there follows many Taliban attacks on Afghan civilians and US forces, as well as Afghan forces attacks on American troops there. But today, Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai insists that “foreign intelligence agencies” are responsible for the Serena attack. The Afghan government held foreign agencies of intelligence responsible for an attack against a luxury hotel in this city that left nine fatalities and various injured. President Hamid Karzai’s management denied that groups of the political, social and military movement Taliban and Haqqani network were behind the attack. Governmental sources said that the modus operandi did not match that of Afghanistan’s main groups of armed opposition. “Foreign intelligence agencies” points to one of two likely targets — either Pakistan’s ISI or the US CIA. In January, Karzai aired his suspicions that the US was secretly instigating terrorist attacks in Afghanistan. He even published a list of a dozen attacks that he blamed on the US, while everyone else suspects the Taliban. In what may be his final break with the US, Karzai is also siding with Russia over its seizure of Crimea from Ukraine.
