Romney Disagrees with Petraeus, Gates on Taliban Negotiations
Posted by Jacob Stokes
In tonight’s foreign policy debate, Romney said he would not negotiate with the Taliban or “terrorists.” That view goes directly against the advice of Robert Gates and David Petraeus.
Gates: "We have all said all along that a political outcome is the way most wars end."
Petraeus: "This is the way you end insurgencies."
There's no purely military solution in Afghanistan. The military, first and foremost, will tell you that.
