Talking to Terrorists?

This next week, I will be discussing the Middle East, and America’s role in shaping the region’s political landscape. In this TED talk, Støre, Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, discusses the value of establishing discourse with violent groups like Al Qaeda and Hezbollah. I found it to be a very thought provoking look at the way Western governments deal with hostile groups as opposed to states, and think it is an excellent precursor to our next discussion.
