The Timesonline has more details:
The 28-point package for national reconciliation will offer Iraqi resistance groups inclusion in the political process and an amnesty for their prisoners if they renounce violence and lay down their arms, The Times can reveal.
The Government will promise a finite, UN-approved timeline for the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Iraq; a halt to US operations against insurgent strongholds; an end to human rights violations, including those by coalition troops; and compensation for victims of attacks by terrorists or Iraqi and coalition forces.
It will pledge to take action against Shia militias and death squads. It will also offer to review the process of “de-Baathification” and financial compensation for the thousands of Sunnis who were purged from senior jobs in the Armed Forces and Civil Service after the fall of Saddam Hussein.
The deal, which has been seen by The Times, aims to divide Iraqi insurgents from foreign fighters linked to al-Qaeda. It builds on months of secret talks involving Jalal al-Talabani, the Iraqi President, Zalmay Khalilzad, the US Ambassador, and seven Sunni insurgent groups.
The death of Zarqawi and the further decimation of al Qaeda in Iraq looms large here. The Iraqi forces will have their hands full with the Shia militias and death squads and the remaining foreign fighters, but if the seven main insurgent groups stop fighting I'm sure the Iraqis can handle the job.
The amnesty part will be hard to accept, but if it ends the war then so be it.
Captain's Quarters has some analysis. I pretty much agree.
Will the offer be accepted? What will the next six months look like? I'm up for it.
As for political considerations inside America, I don't really care what this means. All I want is a stable Iraq with a strong yet democratic government that can protect its people and infrastructure and that allows the Iraqi people to just...live their lives.
