Karzai says it's not Newsweek's fault

Afghan president Karzai told Wolf Blitzer that the riots supposedly caused by Newsweek's article about the mistreatment of the Koran really were actually caused by a number of factors. Of course the administration has pretty much laid the burden of the enmity of the entire Muslim world against us at Newsweek's feet. Karzai, in the portion of the interview I saw, was also furious about the Times report of the Afghan prison torture and the death of a 22-year-old cabdriver. He is not happy with the Americans.

Here's a piece from Daily Kos about the Newsweek part.
The ironic thing is, despite Karzai's contention, CNN is still blaming Newsweek. Very odd.
