People walk past a picture of Afghan President Hamid Karzai on a street in Kabul June 26, 2014. As thousands of Afghans poured into the streets of Kabul on June 27, 2014 to protest over the impasse in their country's presidential election, there was little doubt who they held responsible for the mess - outgoing President Karzai. No one has provided any hard evidence that the protesters are right, but even within Karzai's family and inner circle, many believe the president quietly engineered the electoral debacle to keep his hands on the levers of power.
