NATO’s secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Wednesday that if Afghan leaders and the White House can’t agree on a key security pact, the U.S.-led alliance will pull all of its troops and equipment out of Afghanistan by December. The blunt announcement from Fogh Rasmussen at the start of a NATO defense ministers meeting ratchets up the pressure on Afghan President Hamid Karzai to strike a deal. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)

ADVANCE FOR SUNDAY, MARCH 2 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this Dec. 4, 2003 file photo Russian businessman Yuri Borisov speaks in Vilnius, Lithuania. Yuri Borisov’s performance on a lucrative U.S. military contract was dismal. Cost overruns. Blown deadlines. Forged paperwork. Yet that didn’t keep the Russian entrepreneur from winning more business with the Department of Defense, according to interviews and documents obtained by The Associated Press. Borisov, who specializes in refurbishing Russian Mi-17 helicopters, had an ally in Bert Vergez, an Army colonel who ran an obscure DOD acquisition office in Huntsville, Ala.
