Apparently, Bill Frist speculated to a Romanian newspaper about the possibility of bringing the Taliban into the Afghan government. He quite properly said that this was an internal matter for President Karzai to decide.
Does he have some backing in the administration? Who knows?
Naturally, the Kossacks see this primarily as a partisan opportunity. I hope the Democrats win, and I accept the necessity of dreary appartchik sites like Kos and Eschaton. That doesn't mean I have to read the bastards.
