deeper into the warren?

A little problematic, eh Pete?

Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s erratic behavior of late, including suggestions he may join the Taliban, have a “corrosive impact” on Canadian troops, the Defence Minister says. Just back from Afghanistan, Peter MacKay told The Globe and Mail today that was the message he delivered to two senior Karzai government ministers. “I called for more constructive and active engagement. People need to see a more visible presence of the Afghan government in Kandahar province,” Mr. MacKay told the Afghan officials, explaining the President’s comments have a “corrosive impact on Canadian soldiers and citizens.”

I really hope you're not thinking about crawling further into the labyrinth.
