merican officials handed control of the notorious prison at Bagram Air Base to Afghans on Monday, although questions still loom about "high value" Taliban operatives there, and if they'll remain under U.S. control. President Hamid Karzai praised the transfer as a win for Afghan sovereignty. Earlier this year, the prison came under intense scrutiny after Korans were taken from the library and burned. The U.S. said it was an accident, but the event sparked anti-American protests across the country.
