Afghanistan's president lauded Osama bin Laden's death as a serious blow to terrorism on Monday and argued that the strike in Pakistan proves the real fight against terrorists is outside his country's borders. "This is a very important day. Maybe you have already heard on the television or on the radio that American forces have killed Osama bin Laden, delivering him his due punishment," President Hamid Karzai told an assembly of district government officials in Kabul, as the hall erupted in applause.
Karzai used the opportunity to again chastise international forces for concentrating so much of their military effort in Afghanistan. Karzai has repeatedly said that more of the focus should be across the border in Pakistan where al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders reportedly live.
"For years we have said that the fight against terrorism is not in Afghan villages and houses," said Karzai.
