US In Secret Talks With "Insurgents"

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. diplomats and intelligence officers are conducting secret talks with Iraq's Sunni insurgents on ways to end fighting there, Time magazine reported on Sunday, citing Pentagon and other sources.

The sudden change in the attitude of the Sunni insurgents can be attributed to the successful election in Iraq.
