    Taliban chiefs enter secret talks with government to end war

    Secret talks to end the war in Afghanistan have begun between representatives of the Taliban and the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, The Washington Post reported on its website Tuesday night.
    Afghan and Arab sources cited by the Post said they believe for the first time that Taliban representatives are fully authorized to speak for the Quetta Shura, the Afghan Taliban organization based in Pakistan, and its leader, Mohammad Omar, according to the newspaper. The sources requested anonymity to discuss the development.
    Omar's representatives have shunned negotiations in the past, insisting that all foreign troops withdraw first.
    However, the Post reported that its sources said the Quetta Shura has begun to talk about a comprehensive agreement that would include participation of some Taliban figures in the government and the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO troops.

    Translation: The Taliban is getting it's ass handed to itself (though you'd never know from American media), and wants to save face without looking like an outright surrender.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    I didn't read the rest of the article but I don't trust 'em. Sounds like a trick to me. Make nice until the U.S. and allies leave, then start it all up again.
