Let us understand that this is a start as it empowers a Taliban leadership that may be able to fully represent Pathan interests. The Afghan government does represent everyone else and it could all be that simple. The defacto default can be those two parties learning how to cooperate.

At this point, we have created the possibility of real peace. That never actually existed..
If the Taliban meet the conditions of the deal, the U.S. could withdraw its 13,000 troops in the country in a little over a year.
