The War President Doesn't Negotiate
New sanctions announced by the Bush Administration against Iran "signif[y] that President Bush has given up on multilateral diplomacy with Tehran. He's back to going his own way." Froomkin continues:
"The Bush administration still refuses to meet with Iranian leaders face to face. True diplomacy requires a willingness to talk.
"The White House maintains it is still devoted to diplomacy, but we've heard that before. And without patience or dialogue, "diplomacy" isn't really diplomacy -- it's a charade."
