A Reuters exclusive  reports that Al Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban and the Pakistan Taliban are engaged in talks to figure out the direction of the militant movement.  They have also reported that there is a tremendous amount of the infighting within the TTP (Pakistan Taliban).  Reuters reports that long standing feud between the head of the TTP  Hakimullah Mehsud, and his deputy, Wali-ur-Rehman,  have now reached fever pitch.
