Excerpt from AP video from Special Representative Holbrooke during tour of historical site in Herat with Afghan officials.

SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE HOLBROOKE: Let's just wait for the Independent Election Commission (IEC) and the Complaints Commission (ECC) to reach their verdicts. We have disputed elections in the United States. There maybe some questions here, that wouldn't surprise me at all. I expect it, but let's not get out ahead of the situation. We're waiting for the IEC and the ECC to make its decisions. And the United States and the international community will respect the process set up by Afghanistan itself. I stress that, we will respect the process set up by Afghanistan itself.
