"Nothing to See Here"

It’s not available online as best I can tell, but Laura Rozen has a story in National Journal about the mild opening to talks with Iran which indicates that “State Department officials caution that the shift is less dramatic than the media have portrayed it.” It’s an interesting article, full of reporting on the many ins-and-outs of low-level Washington-Teheran dialgue since 9/11, but the key takeaway is that there’s no bona fide change of heart about the merits of serious diplomatic engagement: “Middle East analysts are divided over whether Washington’s openness to limited dialogue with Iran means that the Unites States is moving away from possible confrontation — or just delaying it.”
