Reporting on the disputed release of 68 prisoners from Bagram, the US daily quotes from a dispatch by Kate Clark, "an expert with the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts Network":

"The U.S. may be right — in part — in claiming the Afghan government has violated the agreement" governing the transfer of control of Bagram,. "Yet this bitter dispute also shows just how weak the Americans have become in the face of the Afghan state's assertion of sovereignty."
