Did Obama just say the Taliban are going to open an office?—

At a joint presser today on the future of America’s presence in Afghanistan, President Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai dropped a bit of a bomb: they agreed to support the setting up of a Taliban “office” in Qatar’s capital of Doha.
Uh-huh. Because if anyone’s for peace, it’s the Taliban. Don’t worry, you guys! Karzai says everything will be just fine.
What could possibly go wrong?
We can’t wait to find out!
Or giving them some workspace, apparently.
