Gates Says Taliban Must Take Legitimate Afghan Role
"ISLAMABAD--The United States recognizes that the Taliban are now part of the political fabric of Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said here on Friday, but they must be prepared to play a legitimate role before they can reconcile with the Afghan government.
"That means, Mr. Gates said, that the Taliban must participate in elections, not oppose education and not assassinate local officials. "The question is whether the Taliban at some point in this process is ready to help build a 21st century Afghanistan or whether they still just want to kill people," Mr. Gates said."
