"The U.S. has made 'very preliminary' contacts with Afghan Taliban guerrillas, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said, a day after Afghanistan's president said he is looking to Pakistan to mediate peace talks. ... While State Department officials and envoys from other countries have met Taliban representatives in recent weeks, 'real reconciliation talks are not likely to be able to make any substantive headway until at least this winter,' Gates said on CNN's 'State of the Union' program."
