Whoops! Watch Obama Mistakenly Refer to Afghan President Ghani as 'President Karzai'

Somehow, President Obama ended up complimenting a leader he meant to criticize.

— -- While announcing his plan to slow the drawdown of American troops in Afghanistan today, President Obama made a high-profile slip-of the-tongue, and somehow wound up complimenting the very leader he mean to criticize.

Ghani, on the other hand, has routinely lauded the U.S./Afghanistan partnership and today thanked American troops – and even “the American taxpayer” – for their role in his nation’s security.
