Afghan President Hamid Karzai attends the last day of the national consultative council known as a Loya Jirga in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013. Afghanistan's president says he won't immediately sign a security deal with the United States, ignoring a recommendation by an assembly of Afghan elders and leaders that he do so by the end of the year. Hamid Karzai argued Afghanistan needed more time to ensure that the United States was committed to peace.
