Among them: Not enough “phone calls on a somewhat regular basis.” Of course this is probably one of those minor rifts that the media exaggerate for the sake of ratings. Remember how Hillary Clinton was supposed to lead a rebellion at the convention?

U.N. Sides With Afghans in Airstrike Controversy

Iraq isn’t the only U.S.-occupied nation looking for some sovereignty. Afghan officials are calling for more regulation of foreign troops amid an uproar over U.S. airstrikes. One recent U.S.-led attack, according a U.N. investigation, probably killed 90 civilians—mostly children.
