USA Today, 17 November 2013

The US daily, discussing possible implications of the 2014 Afghan election and end of the last Karzai term on the US, quotes AAN’s Kate Clark about Ustad Sayyaf, one of the candidates for Karzai’s succession:

Kate Clark, an analyst with the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analyst Network, said Sayyaf has won the trust of some in Washington. Clark said Sayyaf assisted U.S. efforts to re-engage the Karzai administration in talks of a bilateral security agreement that would allow several thousand U.S. forces to remain in the country after the drawdown of combat troops at the end of 2014.
