Submission + - Talking to the Taliban (theglobeandmail.com) 1

europa universalis writes: At the Globe and Mail(1) website, Canadian journalist Graeme Smith is presenting a video report in which members of the Taliban fighting Canadian troops in Kandahar province were asked 20 specific questions from a survey, on camera, by a long-time source and associate of his. The translations were double-checked by a third party; the interviews and report were circulated amongst prominent Afghanis near Kandahar, including members of the Taliban, for commentary and feedback before the report was published.

(1)A major Canadian newspaper, widely viewed as somewhat conservative by Canadians.
