[May 03, 2010]  WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expects there will be some reconciliation between those fighting in Afghanistan, but she says she doubts that some U.S. foes will be willing to set aside differences.

Clinton tells NBC's "Meet The Press" in an interview aired Sunday that she has doubts whether Taliban leader Mullah Omar will say he's giving up his ties to al-Qaida.

But Clinton says she is not resigned to the Taliban being a part of the Afghan government in the future. She says she doesn't know of any conflict in recent times that didn't have some political resolution.

Clinton says she thinks there are leaders within the Taliban who have come over to the other side. But she says they have to renounce al-Qaida and violence.
