Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA) was refused entry to Afghanistan last week due to his criticisms of Hamid Karzai’s government and, according to Afghan officials, Rohrbacher’s discussions with Afghan politicians about the creation of a decentralized government. Rohrbacher’s spokesperson said that he obliged with Karzai’s wishes not to enter Afghanistan “out of respect” for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, Rohrabacher struck a different note, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Clinton “should have stood up” to “prima donna” Karzai:
