Brits tell Yanks to beat it in Afghanistan

British military asks U.S. forces to leave Afghan province

By CARLOTTA GALL, NY Times
A senior British commander in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province said he had asked the U.S. to withdraw special forces from his area of operations because the high level of civilian casualties they have caused was making it difficult to win over local people. A U.S. military spokesman denied the request was made.
