Hamid Karzai just walked past me in the hotel lobby, that was a bit extreme.

He is also a speaker at the Jaipur Literature Festival. #ZEEJLF

Wikipedia claims: After his father was assassinated in 1999, Hamid inherited the title of Khan and became leader in the armed struggle against the Taliban. At the time his brother Ahmad Wali Karzai was ranked as the biggest drug producer/smuggler in Afghanistan, and was on the payroll of the CIA. When the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, they crushed opium production. It was revived again to full bloom after Karzai became President. Karzai's brother was murdered by the Taliban on 12th July 2011.

Just a little something about Drugs and Decision making.
