Karzai's Spotlight On Terry Jones' Quran Burning Raises Questions

Why Did Karzai Spotlight U.S. Quran Burning?

There is a growing sense among a number of diplomats here that the demonstrations were provoked by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Nearly two weeks passed without incident after Mr. Jones and his congregation of about 30 followers burned a Quran in Florida on March 20.
