As the clock ticks toward 2014 and the final withdrawal of NATO and U.S. troops, peace talks with the Taliban are floundering even as the Taliban are showing some hopeful signs, attending international conferences and issuing a statement from their reclusive one-eyed leader with a surprise offer to share power in Afghanistan.
