“In June [13] 2002, Afghans gathered for a second loya jirga [grand council] to select a transitional government. This time security was good enough to host the conference in Kabul. The delegates chose [Hamid] Karzai to head the new government, and he appointed cabinet ministers from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.”
