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?

Or giving them some workspace, apparently.
