Letters From a NutMay 9th, 2006 at 8:27 am by Preston Taylor Holmes
The press has described it as a great step towards diplomacy. They’re hopeful that the US will finally stand down from their imperialist aggression, which has forced Iran to take steps to defend itself with nuclear weapons.
Iran’s top nuclear negotiator called the surprise letter a new “diplomatic opening” between the two countries, but Rice said it was not.
“This letter is not the place that one would find an opening to engage on the nuclear issue or anything of the sort,” the top U.S. diplomat said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It isn’t addressing the issues that we’re dealing with in a concrete way.”
Rice said the letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was 17 or 18 pages long and covered history, philosophy and religion.
The Old Media has noted the complexity and depth of the letter, implying that, perhaps, it’s a little over the President’s head. Luckily, our crack staff was able to get a copy of the letter itself, which demonstrates quite the opposite.
