"Afghanistan's president pushed his case for greater sovereignty Tuesday, saying he wants international bases that run reconstruction and development programs to shut down as Afghan forces start to take the lead in securing the country. The announcement is the latest attempt by President Hamid Karzai to assert his power in the face of Western allies, following efforts to curtail the reach of private security companies and limit the visibility and intensity of U.S.-led military operations."
