Clinton Defends US Military Strikes in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended targeted U.S. military strikes in Afghanistan Monday, responding to Afghan President Hamid Karzai's call for the U.S. military to reduce the visibility and intensity of its operations.

"On President Karzai's concerns, we ... share these concerns. We've discussed them on a number of occasions," Clinton told reporters.
