War effort suffers possible setback

The U.S. in Afghanistan suffered two misfortunes Thursday. The Taliban broke off talks with the U.S., and President Hamid Karzai said NATO should pull out of rural areas and speed up the transfer of security responsibilities to Afghan forces nationwide in the wake of the killing of 16 civilians, by a U.S soldier. U.S. officials say there is no immediate plan to pull out of the villages.
