There's a tense little drama being played out in the streets of this Central Asian capital these days, and here are some of the main characters and props: -- The Trojan, also known as the lonely American: He's clever, provocative, fluent in Russian and Persian. He honed his political skills in the campus elections at USC. -- The Fat Russian: He's probably KGB, has a loud, crude laugh and moves in the shadows but defers to no one. But two bodyguards are at his side day and night.

The top Soviet general in Afghanistan said Tuesday that once the pullout of his forces is completed by the Feb. 15 deadline, Moscow will no longer use its air power to support the Afghan government. The Soviet Union has been using air power increasingly since last fall to try to push back guerrilla forces besieging Afghan cities, and recently to help keep open a key highway from the Soviet border.

Marine guards lowered the Stars and Stripes in a brief ceremony Monday outside the U.S. Embassy, temporarily closing the mission as Muslim rebels encircled the Afghan capital awaiting a Soviet withdrawal. "We are honored to have served and helped the Afghan people toward peace and freedom," U.S. Charge d'Affaires John Glassman said. "We will be back as soon as the conflict is over. We say goodby, and God bless the United States of America. We are going home."

Cynthia A. Glassman, the longest-serving current member of the Securities and Exchange Commission, plans to resign after her term ends June 5, the SEC said Monday. Glassman, a Republican economist who frequently has urged the SEC to consider the costs of its rules, began serving on the commission in 2002. If a replacement is not named by the time her term expires, Glassman could stay on until her successor takes office, or the SEC could function with four instead of five members.
