The unreported

Did you hear that Former Iranian President Khatami and Senator John Kerry meet in Davos? According to Reuter, Iran says needs time to review atomic "timeout" . However, Russia remains commited to ontime completion of Bushehr project.

Did you hear CNN analyse the anti-war demosntration on capitol hill?

I just came across a nice blog The Osterley Times and this title:

Washington Snubbed Iran Offer

drawing attention to BBC's report that
Dick Cheney's office turned down an offer from Iran in 2003, in which the Iranians offered all that the US could have wanted.

Tehran proposed ending support for Lebanese and Palestinian militant groups and helping to stabilise Iraq following the US-led invasion.

Offers, including making its nuclear programme more transparent, were conditional on the US ending hostility.

But Vice-President Dick Cheney's office rejected the plan, the official said.

There's also another post, underlining the similarities between George Bush and Ahmadinejad:

They are Broken Men, so don't let them take us to a new war which links to the Observer.

Hi Naj, I saw pictures of both K's through "ballatarin" the other day.
Curt had a post linking to the original BBC article:
Have you read the "Fist of God"? Forsythe describes the negotiations at that time with Saddam, backed with some confidential memo:
Something like: "We should always appear to the public opinion that we want to find a political solution to the crises. But we must always put conditions unacceptable by Saddam…." You know the rest.
Good to have that story is out again.

If you heard it on “Rue-ter” then you might regret it one day…

As for “washin’ gro(i)n” you don’t have to go into such graphic details, even when addressing dirty issues such as the member(s) of Bush’s boudoir
