 Afghan President Powerless as Warlords Battle
MEYMANEH, Afghanistan -- Assassins with their turbans wrapped to hide their faces ambushed a convoy on a main street in the middle of an April afternoon, executing Rasul Beg, a mid-level local militia commander, and igniting one of the fiercest battles between rival warlords ever waged in this northern town.
The battle of Meymaneh and its aftermath, as recounted in interviews with witnesses and participants, is in many ways the woeful tale of all of Afghanistan 18 months after the fall of the Taliban and the installation of Karzai's interim administration.
At the Meymaneh Hotel, the U.N. delegation had just sat down to work on a cease-fire agreement requiring both militias to move out of the town center when the protesters stormed their meeting, smashed furniture and beat peacemakers and combatants alike.
