BOSTON, Mass. (AP) —Afghanistan's first 2001 post-Taliban president Hamid Karzai marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America with a meeting of tribal elders at his high-walled compound in the Afghan capital. He has remained there with his family since the August return of the Taliban to Kabul. In a tweet, Karzai called for “peace and stability.” He also expressed the hope that the new caretaker Cabinet that included no women and no non-Taliban would become an “inclusive government that can be the real face of the whole Afghanistan.”
