Will Obama support Karzai's re-election in Afghanistan?

Relations between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the U.S. are worse than at any time in the past eight years. Each side accuses the other of enabling the revival of the Taliban. U.S. and European officials say they've grown frustrated by Karzai's failure to curb corruption, cronyism and incompetence. Karzai has grown increasingly angry at the mounting civilian casualties in U.S.-led military operations. Now a question looms: Will Obama support Karzai's re-election?
