"Seeing a new glimmer of hope in its effort to broker Afghan peace talks, the Obama administration is launching a fresh round of shuttle diplomacy with an immediate goal of sealing agreement for Taliban insurgents to open a political office in the Gulf state of Qatar. ... The goal is to move the talks beyond the current, mostly logistical discussions of mutual 'confidence-building measures' between parties fighting on the battlefield." (01/11/12)
