"the United States has declared a willingness to negotiate with the Taliban in Afghanistan"....

Oh Yeah?
Which Taliban is that then?

“To add to the confusion we don't even know who is our enemy and who is our ally. Taliban is a crude catch-all term which is of little help in Afghanistan's immensely complex, fragmented politics of tribe, clan and region. These groupings judge how best to secure their position and shift their allegiances accordingly.” The Guardian, March 23, 2009

The 'insurgents' that we are told about are, I reckon, people resisting Western imperialism.

The same Western imperialism that created & sustained the training camps in Afghanistan where a lot of nasty terrists must've learnt their trade (See here )
