Ahhh, the gold ‘ole fifth-column back at it again.
Some House Democrats have introduced a bill that would establish a diplomatic envoy in Tehran and mandate direct talks between Washington and Iran over its nuclear development plans.
California Rep. Barbara Lee, the legislation’s chief sponsor, said the measure is aimed at reversing the administration’s official “no contact” policy with Tehran, reports The Hill newspaper.
“The darkening clouds surrounding Iran’s nuclear program are troubling,” she said last week. “We must use all diplomatic tools available, including engaging in direct bilateral and multilateral diplomacy. To do that, we must lift the ‘no contact’ policy and begin negotiations.”
According to Lee’s summary of the bill, the new envoy would be instructed to pursue “direct, sustained, bilateral, and multilateral negotiations with the government of Iran in order to prevent war and support human rights.”
