A senior Republican Senator on Friday opposed the peace agreement between Pakistani government and the Taliban militants in the Swat Valley, saying such deals have failed in the past. "They (Pakistanis) tried it a couple of years, and it was a failure. I'm afraid anytime you negotiate with terrorists," Senator Kit Bond, Ranking Member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Fox New in an interview. Mr. Bond said he think they're regrettably learning that lesson the hard way. "I personally disagree with the decisions the Zardari Government made to turn over the area of Swat to the Taliban so that they could impose Shari'a law," he said. Mr. Bond, however, praised Pakistani Army Chief General Asfaq Parvez Kiyani and said US should continue to support him.
