Carney Refuses To Call Taliban A Terrorist Group


MARK KNOLLER, CBS NEWS: Does the u.s. still regard the taliban as a terrorist group?

JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE: We regard the Taliban as an enemy combatant in a conflict that has been going on, and in which the United States has been involved for more than a decade. And in this case, although we dealt with the Qataris to secure his release, it was the right thing to do. He was being held in captivity as a prisoner, not a hostage. We saw his recovery and succeeded in recovering him.
