Karzai gets US support for ouster allegations

New book by former defence secretary supports Afghan president's theory that US wanted to push him out years ago.

    During his re-election campaign in 2009, Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused the US of trying to push him out of office.

    Now he has one major voice backing up his claim, and the revelation by former US defence secretary Robert Gates is likely to further strain ties between the two countries.
