Good Afghanistan News

A break-away faction of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's Hizb-e Islami has announced they wish to join Hamid Karzai in peaceful rebuilding of the country. As the article notes, this is only a small group, but is still a good sign about the political prospects in a country that definitely needs one. This also seems to be an outgrowth of Karzai's reaching out to former enemies, a policy RFE-RL compares to the Pentagon's decision to begin working for former Ba'athists in Iraq.
