Obama administration in secret taks with Taliban
The Obama administration may be close to reversing course on its current strategy in Afghanistan, after DawnNews quoted sources as saying that high-level talks with senior Taliban militants are currently underway.The first round of talks has concluded an a new round is expected. This could explain Obama's dithering. I am skeptical that the Taliban would honor any agreement that did not put them in charge fo imposing their weir religious beliefs on the population as a whole.
The indirect talks involve officials from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Britain, and top Afghan Taliban leadership, including the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen Chief and Abdullah Anus, among others.
