Robert Gibbs says Karzai's anti-western remarks are troubling

WASHINGTON (AP) - White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says
Afghan President Hamid Karzai's harsh words about foreign countries
are "genuinely troubling," and the administration is seeking
clarification of what he meant.

Karzai on Thursday accused the United Nations and the international community of interfering in last year's fraud-tarnished presidential election. He did not specifically name the United States. But he said foreign nations were trying to weaken his authority.

Gibbs made his comments Friday to reporters.
