Shelley Ackerman quotes news at the time, "It came in at 3:44 AM EST(1:14 PM Local time) just as the moon was going void in Pisces. I asked the reporter how much of a time lag between an event and the event coming in over the wires was typical, and she said 2 or 3 minutes, making it 1:11-1:12 PM Kabul time."

Dorothy Kovach writes, "I was watching the feed live on CNN and timed the opening from the reading of the Koran at: 10:45PM PST which would be 06:45 (am)GMT and 11:15 (am) Kabul time (4.5). However, there was an interruption of the CNN feed, and during that time the

commentator said that the ceremony was to last from that point onwards for 3 hours. This would mean that the installation of the government would have taken place at the close of the ceremonies, which would approximately be: 14:15 pm Kabul time. The first dateline of the ceremony from the BBC gives a time of 14:19 pm no location, however, this appears to be Kabul time.

"I have just received word from Mr. Rao, the eastern astrologer and publisher, that he has an unconfirmed report of 14:19 Kabul. Do you have any confirmation of time?"
