Negotiating with Evil

Monday, September 20, 2010

Mitchell B. Reiss discusses his experiences at the center of some of America’s most sensitive diplomatic negotiations—from forging peace in Northern Ireland to stemming the nuclear crisis in North Korea. In Negotiating with Evil: When to Talk to Terrorists, he addresses two vital questions: Should we talk to terrorists? And How should we conduct the negotiations with them in order to gain what we want?

"...unless a lot of spadework has been done to prepare for it."

Yes, & that's exactly what Obama said (in a debate w/McCain, I think): that "without preconditions" didn't mean without preparation.

Where's Leonard?

Is Leonard OK? If he is on some sort of personal leave then of course I respect his privacy and wish him well.

But if he's just on vacation, please announce when he is expected back.

The guest hosts are fine, but I miss Leonard.
