"We have always been at war with Eastasia"

Chupacabra Report..

Last week, Undersecretary of State William Burns traveled to Switzerland and met with representatives of the Iranian government to discuss the Iranian nuclear program and prepared for the opening of direct air links between the two countries and the re-establishment of the first US diplomatic office in Iran since 1979. All good news to my ear, but what really gets my goat is that just three months ago, Bush told the Israeli Knesset that those who would talk to Iran were like Neville Chamberlain appeasing Hitler before World War II.

And, Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister al Maliki have been discussing “a general time horizon” for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. This after years of the administration characterizing any who spoke of setting a withdrawal timeline as defeatist surrender monkeys that would probably speak French as they cut and run.

I suppose that one could look at this as a hopeful sign that the White House is finally facing reality, but they’ve simply exhausted every other possibility and are just playing out the string now.

Come on January 20th.

They were proud of themselves for re-negotiating the same arrangement with North Korea that they inherited from Clinton's team, too!
