One more reason to hate Karl Rove (as if we need any more)

According to a former aide to disgraced former Ohio Congressman Bob Ney, Karl Rove was the recipient 4 years ago of the secret offer to "deal" from Iran that I first noted some months ago. Here is an interview between Amy Goodman of Democracy Now and Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), the largest Iranian-American organization in the US. He is author of the forthcoming book "Treacherous Triangle - The Secret Dealings of Iran, Israel and the United States." Yes, this is the same report that our book-smart but competence-challenged Secretary of State Rice claims to have known nothing about.

At the time Iran said it would consider far-reaching compromises on its nuclear program, relations with Hezbollah and Hamas and support for a Palestinian peace agreement with Israel. Now, how many lives might have been saved if the USA and Iran had achieved some sort of rapprochement? Your guess is as good as mine, but may our least favorite fat man's sleep be forever visited by the ghosts of maimed and dead Iraqi children and American GIs.

Aiii,Kim, let us count the ways. Y'know, I always get most worried when we DON'T hear anything about the big blunderbuss.
