Afghan Army Soldier Defects to Taliban

An Afghan national army soldier recently fired on foreign troops at a military compound in Sangin district, Helmand province, Afghanistan, after which he sought refuge with the Taliban. A Taliban spokesman said they took him to a safe location. The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force's press office said it had received information about the incident and had launched an investigation to ascertain its veracity. The ISAF will release further details once the investigation is complete. As noted previously, defection to the Taliban can be contagious. If it takes root among the Pashtuns, it could become unstoppable.

Reports Emerge About Taliban Conditions for Ending War

Several high-ranking Taliban leaders met in late October to discuss their conditions for ending the war in Afghanistan, an unnamed source close to the Taliban said. According to local press reports, leaders agreed on seven conditions that would be presented if the West asked for talks. The source also said leaders want to open a dialogue with Washington before the government in Kabul joins. The authenticity of the overture as a Taliban action is not confirmed, and there are grounds to suspect it is not genuine, such as the omission of the usual condition that all foreign forces withdraw before negotiations can begin.
