The Hill – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday defended the administration’s decision to launch peace talks with the Taliban, saying the move was “worth the risk” and could ease the withdrawal of U.S. forces out of Afghanistan.

“We’ve always supported a peaceful resolution to the end of the bloodshed in the war in Afghanistan,” said Hagel in a speech at the University of Nebraska. “I think it’s worth the risk.”
