    Time will tell. U.S. forces and Taliban fighters began a near cease-fire Saturday as part of an agreement to reduce violence for a week to potentially secure a peace deal, a top U.S. military commander said. Gen. Austin "Scott" Miller made the announcement to reporters in Kabul. The reduction in violence began just after midnight Friday and is scheduled to last a week. The two sides hope to sign a peace deal at the end of the month if the cease-fire holds, bringing a resolution to the war that began in October 2001 after the Taliban's refusal to hand over al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, who authorized the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. A U.S. military operation killed bin Laden in 2011.
