INTERVIEW-Veteran adviser says Afghans need own solution

KABUL, May 4 (Reuters) - Afghanistan must find its own political path and foreign troops, who are losing the trust of the public, should soon leave the country, a veteran adviser to Afghan governments for four decades said on Friday. --- Tarzi says the Americans were welcomed as the bringers of a new era of freedom when they deposed the Taliban in 2001 but it was now time to reach out to all sides in the fighting. --- The rising number of accidental deaths of Afghans at the hands of Western troops, along with rampant corruption and a lack of progress in rebuilding the country, is contributing to an increasing pessimism among diplomats, journalists and businessmen spoken to by Reuters in Kabul this week.
