      Poll: U.S. Taliban Talks

      Poll: U.S. Taliban Talks

      It won't be quick, and it won't be easy.

      That's President Barack Obama's assessment of the upcoming talks between the United States and the Taliban, aimed at finding a political solution after nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan.
