With Monday’s final debate scheduled on the subject of foreign policy it is little surprise that conflicting messages are coming out of the WH. (The 3 sites give 3 different messages.)
Late last night I received the news alert email that the NYT is reporting the WH and Iran has agreed to 1:1 discussions following the election. I rolled my eyes and went to bed.
This morning the WH is denying that this is true. Israel is on record as saying “news to us”. Of course the attempt is to pose O as on the cusp of a vital diplomatic coup JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION. Coincidence? Why of course (eyes rolling again). Mind you that the talks won’t occur until AFTER the election because Iran wants to know which administration it will actually be dealing with (wink, wink). We are suppose to then reasonably excuse another month of Iranian progress on nuclear technology based on this promise of talks in general. I can see the posturing on Monday by the CES as he firmly explains Romney is a detriment to the peace process and he would most likely send our young men and women to another war. And with that comment the shenanigans of the leaked story (wink, wink) will be realized.
Question: Do we really see the Iranian regime sitting down with the “Great Satan” to discuss their nation’s programs and plans ethically? Do we see a nation that will cooperate fully “in deed” to inspections and controls by IAEA to ensure solely civil work and use of nuclear technology?
