Afghan president confirms he received tens of millions of dollars from the CIA in suitcases and sacks 'for access to Karzai's inner circle'

Afghan President Hamid Karzai confirmed today that his national security team had been receiving payments from the U.S. government for the past 10 years.

Karzai revealed the payments when he was asked about a story published in The New York Times.

The article said the CIA had given the Afghan National Security Council tens of millions of dollars in monthly payments delivered in suitcases, backpacks and plastic shopping bags in return for access to his inner circle.

The cash payments are the first known to be given directly to President Karzai.
