Mrs. Clinton is proving to be quite the diplomat – why, just today Iran promised to kill American troops in Iraq “help” in Afghanistan:
“I did think that the Iranian intervention this morning was promising,” she told reporters of Akhoundzadeh’s speech.
While Clinton did not hold discussions with the Iranian delegation, she said U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke had what she called brief and cordial contacts with Akhoundzadeh on the meeting sidelines.
“It did not focus on anything substantive. It was cordial; it was unplanned and they agreed to stay in touch.”
Ah, shoot, I mixed up my quotes there. The last paragraph was actually a summary of Obama’s presidency.
