Afghan President Hamid Karzai attends the last day of the national consultative council known as a Loya Jirga in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013. Mr. Karzai said he won't immediately sign a security deal with the United States, ignoring a recommendation by the assembly of Afghan elders and leaders that he do so by the end of the year. The president argued that Afghanistan needs more time to ensure that the United States is committed to peace. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul)
