Gates To Discuss Afghanistan On 'All Things Considered'

Osama bin Laden's death could create an opportunity for a negotiated settlement in Afghanistan. There were reports last week that a European official met with a representative of Mullah Omar, a powerful Taliban leader with close ties to bin Laden. On Wednesday's "All Things Considered," host Robert Siegel will ask Defense Secretary Robert Gates whether the U.S. would be open to those talks.
