    US in talks with Iraq "rebels"

    The Sunday Times has this report:

    After weeks of delicate negotiation involving a former Iraqi minister and senior tribal leaders, a small group of insurgent commanders apparently came face to face with four American officials seeking to establish a dialogue with the men they regard as their enemies. The talks on June 3 were followed by a second encounter 10 days later, according to an Iraqi who said that he had attended both meetings. Details provided to The Sunday Times by two Iraqi sources whose groups were involved indicate that further talks are planned in the hope of negotiating an eventual breakthrough that might reduce the violence in Iraq.
    The US sees fit now to sit down and talk to its enemies in Iraq, why did it not think that was an appropriate course to take before the illegal invasion of Iraq? And no, i'm not saying the US should have sat down and agreed all sorts of weapons sales with Iraq, as used to be the case. This post is also available at Blogger News Network.
