Afghan Candidates Back Off Voter Fraud Claims

Bookmark and Share

I want to see how the lefties try to spin this recent news of success in Afghanistan. Seems the candidates that brought up voter fraud issues have subsided. It kind of sucks when you have to hope for failure in order for your candidate to have a shot in hell of winning, but that's all the hope the liberal Democrats and John Kerry have at this moment.

Washington Post

Controversy clouding Afghanistan's historic first presidential election eased Sunday when several major opposition candidates backed off from assertions that voter fraud and errors at polling places had rendered Saturday's vote meaningless and illegitimate.

As thousands of ballot boxes began reaching the capital by donkey, taxi and helicopter to be counted at an army base, Afghan and international officials reiterated their praise for the massive, peaceful demonstration of civic will shown by millions of voters, and they played down the complaints of voting irregularities initially made by 15 candidates.


Final results are not expected for several weeks, but scattered exit polls by an American delegation observing the election showed Karzai with a clear majority of votes and his principal challenger, Yonus Qanooni, a former cabinet minister, running a distant second. More than 10.5 million men and women registered to vote, and turnout was described as massive by international election observers and the United Nations.


"Yesterday was a huge defeat for the Taliban," said Lt. Gen. David Barno, commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. "The Taliban didn't show."

The Islamic militia had repeatedly threatened to sabotage the elections through bombings and other violent assaults.

Yes, it should be interesting to see how they find the negative side to this... after all, it absolutely speaks for the success of Pres. Bush's assertion that Liberty and Democracy will be the greatest weapon against the savages. After all, they have tried and failed, to disrupt the process. Ten Million people (actually 10.6) but who's counting... turned out to vote. Sure there were some problems, but our processes aren't perfect either.

I cannot imagine how depressing things will be in this country if "Wrong War Kerry" and "Flickering Light" Edwards get in... Do they even LIVE in the same country with the rest of us???
