The mess that is Afghanistan just keeps getting messier. After an audit of votes due to fraudulent ballots in the recent presidential election, both candidates have withdrawn. “Both Mr. Abdullah and Mr. Ghani have claimed victory in June's poll and both have alleged widespread fraud. The two candidates had agreed to form a government of national unity but have so far failed to reach a deal,” reported BBC News. Now both are walking away from the recount process, just days before current Afghan President Karzai is due to step aside September 2nd.
