Searching For Answers After Quran Burning

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and top aides are in damage-control mode after rioting raged in Afghanistan following last week's Quran-burning incident at a U.S. air base.

The president has already apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai. But that hasn't stopped the violence, which has claimed not only Afghan lives but the lives of American troops, shot in the bloody backlash.

Saturday's killing of two U.S. military advisers at the Interior Ministry in Kabul has especially dismayed administration officials, given the security that was breached. Officials are trying to find out how a gunman slipped inside the heavily guarded Interior Ministry.

While the spasm of bloodshed that's swept Afghanistan has raised new questions about the U.S. mission, U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker says America is NOT rethinking its commitment to Afghanistan. He says, it's time to "redouble" U.S. efforts to ensure stability.
