Was Bush’s Offer to Iran Designed to Fail?

That’s the provocative question posed by this N.Y. Times article. “It became obvious to Mr. Bush that he could not ... consider military strikes on Iranian nuclear sites unless he first showed a willingness to engage Iran’s leadership directly over its nuclear program and exhaust every nonmilitary option.”
Has a decision to hit Iran already been made? Are we seeing a charade like the one before the Iraq war?

Bush: Sept. 11 ‘Ended on a Relatively Humorous Note’

In a 2003 interview with Ladies Home Journal, Bush told Peggy Noonan that during the late-night hours of Sept. 11, he and wife Laura were hustled around the White House in their bedtime clothes because it was thought a jet was going to crash into the building. “[T]he day ended on a relatively humorous note,” he said. “We got a laugh out of it.”
“Bad taste” doesn’t really seem to do this justice.

    U.S. Prepared to Join Direct Talks With Iran

    Sec. of State Rice said America will join Europe in direct talks if Iran suspends its programs to enrich uranium and reprocess spent nuclear fuel. It’s a dramatic about-face, and comes a mere three weeks after the Iranian president sent a personal letter to Bush—the first direct communication between the two countries in over 20 years.

    The Purpose-Driven Life Takers

    Christian fundamentalist Tim LaHaye’s series of “Left Behind” books has been made into a Grand Theft Auto-style video game. Preview: The main character says “Praise the Lord” after blowing away a heathen. (Talk2action has more.)
    Let’s see: We’ve got a deputy undersecretary of defense who sees the war on terror as a fight between Judeo-Christians and Satan; a president who has called the war on terror a “crusade” and, now, video game makers encouraging preteens to kill heathens. If those are the people being saved, Leave Me Behind.
