"Accept defeat by Taliban, Pakistan tells Nato".

The Telegraph today has a story headlined "Accept defeat by Taliban, Pakistan tells Nato".

"Pakistan's foreign minister, Khurshid Kasuri, has said in private briefings to foreign ministers of some Nato member states that the Taliban are winning the war in Afghanistan and Nato is bound to fail. He has advised against sending more troops.
Western ministers have been stunned. "Kasuri is basically asking Nato to surrender and to negotiate with the Taliban," said one Western official who met the minister recently."

The Stevie and Petie Dog and Pony Show isn't going to be mentioning this to any of the hated Canadian media.

On the other hand it will be interesting to see if any of the triumphalist national media republish this.
