In a report about the demise of Afghanistan’s vice president, Marshal Mohammad Qasim Fahim, aged 57, AAN's Kate Clark is quoted:. 

Fahim spoke little to the media, said Kate Clark of the Kabul-based think tank Afghanistan Analysts Network, but wielded great influence in closed door meetings.

"Karzai, Fahim and the Americans have been the three key powers in Afghanistan since 2001," she said. "He was one of the key people to win over because he carries a lot of influence within … one of the big political- military parties."
