Before the election they rebuffed his offer, but now President John Kerry will go down in history as the man who headed off a nuclear showdown between the U.S. and Iran. Peace In Our Time!
(Seriously, can the Bush Administration sink any lower? Is it suffering from such a paucity of ideas that it has to adopt those of its defeated opponent, and from such dhimmitude that it cannot bear to consider any path but appeasement?)
“AP: U.S. to Give Iran Nuclear Technology,” from AP:
A package of incentives presented Tuesday to Iran includes a provision for the United States to supply Tehran with some nuclear technology if it stops enriching uranium _ a major concession by Washington, diplomats said.
The offer was part of a series of rewards offered to Tehran by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, according to the diplomats, who were familiar with the proposals and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were disclosing confidential details of the offer.
The package was agreed on last week by the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia _ the five veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council, plus Germany, in a bid to resolve the nuclear standoff with Iran.
