NPR's Melissa Block talks with Zalmay Khalilzad, U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, about recent U.S. military attacks that resulted in the deaths of Afghan children. Khalilzad also shares his thoughts on whether certain individual members of the Taliban may have a place in a rebuilt Afghanistan. Khalilzad, who was born in Afghanistan, returned to Kabul two weeks ago to serve as ambassador.
