Obama, Iran Talks Next?

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice restates President Obama's calls for direct negotiations with Iran

FOX news

President Obama did a quick pivot Monday, shifting his focus to foreign policy by contacting a handful of major world leaders -- including Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and French President Nikolas Sarkozy -- as his new U.N. ambassador restated the desire for vigorous and "direct diplomacy" with Iran.

Obama spoke with the foreign leaders ahead of a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his Middle East envoy George Mitchell, who was leaving immediately afterward for a trip to the region. Mitchell will go to Cairo, Egypt; Jersusalem, Israel; Ramallah in the West Bank; Amman, Jordan; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He will also visit Paris and London.

Back in the U.S., U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who was confirmed last week for the post, said Monday that Iran's refusal to meet international obligations will increase pressure on Tehran to drop its nuclear ambitions and cooperate with the United States and global community.

Besides pursuing nuclear weapons, Iran has called for the destruction of Israel and support for Hamas, a terror group designated by the U.S., Israel and the European Union.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Rice's remarks are not a departure from statements made previously by Obama the candidate. She merely restated the administration position that no forms of communication should be off the table with the Islamic regime.

"Whether you were on the campaign trail or not, clearly this was something that generated a lot of coverage over the past two years. And I think Ambassador Rice was simply restating the position that the president had," he said.

Gibbs did not offer any specific initiatives on dealing with Iran, but said Rice's remarks should come as no surprise.

"This administration is going to use all elements of our national power to address concerns" about Iran's nuclear program.

As for the Mitchell trip, Gibbs said Mitchell was ahead overseas "to begin the process that the president promised to be actively engaged in, the peace process there in the Middle East."

Wild Thing's comment........

Well he did say he would do these direct talks with Iran so he is right on schedule, or maybe even ahead of schedule. I bet he could hardly wait to start in with the Muslims. Getting back to his own people and all.

President "Appeaser" Obama will meet with Iran and when push comes to shove he will repeat his view that the United States is the evil empire. Obama will do nothing effective to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state and will, if he hasn't already, adopt a policy of working with a nuclear Iran. President Obama will agree as part of his "talking" (aka negotiating) with Iran to seek International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection of Israel's nuclear sites with the aim of eliminating it because it is a threat to it's peaceful neighbors.

Les, we should send Obama to Iran and drop him there. Jimmy Carter can join him.
Then not let either one of them back into our country and then tell the dems we can send them to Iran too. Man oh man we are in such a mess.
