US calls Karzai anti-Western remarks troubling

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says Afghan President Hamid Karzai's harsh words about foreign countries are "genuinely troubling," and the administration is seeking clarification of what he meant.
Karzai accused the United Nations and the international community on Thursday of interfering in last year's fraud-tarnished presidential election. He did not specifically name the United States. But he said foreign nations were trying to weaken his authority.
Gibbs made his comments Friday to reporters.
