"The war in Afghanistan has reached a stalemate and the best time to jump-start a political settlement with the Taliban is now, according to a report released yesterday by a US think tank. The report, issued by the Century Foundation, said the United States and Afghanistan’s neighbors, especially Pakistan, must play key roles in any negotiations. Demands that the Taliban sever ties with Al Qaeda or that foreign troops exit the nation, for example, should be considered goals, not preconditions of talks, the 126-page report said." (03/24/11)
