Former Afgahn defense minister and a candidate in Afghanistan's presidential election, Abdul Rahim Wardak, listens during a meeting in Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. Campaign season for Afghanistan's presidential election kicks off Sunday, and the stakes are high for the 11 candidates vying to succeed President Hamid Karzai and oversee the final chapter in a NATO-led combat mission. A withdrawal of U.S. funding and support would put the future president in a compromised position, struggling to hold together the armed forces while staving off an emboldened Taliban.
