…how the big media is doing its best to spin this story – the Administration talking peace with the Taliban after 17 years of war – as a bad thing.
Especially given that when the Administration reversed the Obama-era policy of giving the insurgents a “save the date” card, and cut off all talks six months ago, the same experts were wondering – as they always seem to – what was so wrong about diplomacy.
(There was actually a very good, even-handed story about this on an NPR broadcast last night. I can’t seem to find it. I’ll hold off on the conspiracy theories and assume I’m missing something, here…)
