This is exactly what should happen. The only reason it’s controversial is because Netanyahoo and AIPAC don’t like it.

This is about economics. Tehran’s currency has lost significant value compared to the dollar just within the past 2 months alone. Not just the past 2 years.

Is this another “Wait until my last election is over” negotiation with Iran like the hot mic when Obama told Medevlev “Tell Valdimer to wait until my last election” on the issue of Nukes? What else has Obama promised that we don’t know about? That have to wait until he wins the next election? This is getting scary folks. I wish Palin where the GOP candidate: She might say “So, neither Hillary nor Obama were available to answer that Red Phone at 3am from Benghazi, Libya!”

No it is not! The only way Iran and the US should have talks is in an open forum with 24/7 media coverage BROADCASTED over the air. obama and his administration can NOT be trusted with the security of the United States…that is a PROVEN fact. Especially where Islam is involved.

This may be it! With all economies reeling under financial stress, Iran opening up may create a lot of jobs for UK/US/EU and everyone else. Gas prices could actually come down and peace in the M.E. could prevail. Keep Israel far far away from all this and all the worlds peace problem may be resolved.

Its incumbent on the United States to urgently hold talks with Iran. The sanctions have taken its toll on the ordinary people of Iran. Its a matter of time the oppressed people will create a million Osama bin Ladens who will go after the oppressor. America will spend the rest of its future to go after these Ladens.

So here is your choice–either the NY Times completely fabricated this story to try and bost Obamas foreign policy credentials 2 days before the debate–OR–The WhiteHouse leaks continue unabatedly whenever Obama wants. On one hand it seems conveneient for the Times to have so much “SECRET” information on these talks, and for Obama to come out and deny everything. It creates an opening for him to say at the debate-”can’t talk about it National Security!” and to make it appear he is on the edge of a deal that doesn’t exist. On another note it seems none of the reporters feel it is important to cover a story that is actually going on–”The Missile Defense exercise” in Israel-the largest in history and re-scheduled to run for the 3 weeks up to and including election day–be prepared for a nightmare scenario.
