The door is "wide open" for the Taliban, says `Abdullah `Abdullah

It was hilarious how the New York Times and the Washington Post had the same headline about the Afghan presidential election to the effect that the Afghan voters "defied" the Taliban.  Well, the leading candidate, `Abdullah `Abdullah, tells the mouthpiece of Prince Salman, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat, that the "door is wide open for the Taliban" to be included in the political process. Kid you not.
