Karzai: Afghanistan, U.S. Negotiating With Talibanhttp://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/06/18/karzai-afghanistan-us-negotiating-with-taliban/?test=latestnews
President Hamid Karzai said Saturday that Afghanistan and the United States are engaged in peace talks with the Taliban, even as insurgents stormed a police station near the presidential palace, killing nine people.
The brazen attack in the heart of Kabul's government district provided a sharp counterpoint to Karzai's announcement that the U.S. and Afghan government are in talks with the Taliban, the first official confirmation of such discussions. The violence also underscored the difficulty facing any possible negotiated settlement to the decade-long war.
