Administration briefs Senate leaders on Taliban transfer | The Cable

by on February 2, 2012

Taliban reconciliation efforts? Only at the pointy end of a gun.

‘Levin told reporters Tuesday that the briefing was “about the ongoing Taliban reconciliation efforts.” Levin is open to the idea of transferring Taliban members to Qatar, but said the devil was in the details.

‘”It depends on what assurances we have from the [Qatari] government that they are not going to be released,” Levin said. “But I also think the Afghans have to be very much involved in any discussions and any process. They weren’t for a while.”‘
