Iran likes the ISG recommendations...

It seems the Iranians like the Baker-Hamilton recommendations for direct talks. This has to make me nervous. If Ahmadinejad likes something, you can bet there's a reason for it. That reason will have very little good news for the United States or the emerging democracy in Iraq.

That said, I am not completely opposed to the talks. It just depends on what is said to Iran. A briefing on what STRATCOM will do to Iran if we think Ahadinejad is going to lob a missile at Israel (or elsewhere). A reminder of the provisions of Article V of the North Atlantic Treaty (keeping in mind earlier mouthing off by the nutcase in Tehran) would also be a good idea.
