      Taliban Guantanamo Prisoners Going to Qatar?

      In an important diplomatic step reported by the Associated Press, a deal apparently has been reached to transfer five Taliban detainees from Guantanamo to Qatar, in a new effort to spur a peace process between the Afghan insurgents, the Karzai government, the US and NATO.

      The US allowed an Afghan delegation to visit the five prisoners held in Guantanamo to hear their consent to the transfer. After initial opposition, President Hamid Karzai has agreed as well. Opposition is expected to intensify from Republican presidential candidates, who have opposed the proposed initiative in the past.
