Two points from last week's conference on Iran hosted by the New America Foundation.
First, enjoyed Chris Preble's use of the name "Chalabi" as a verb, that is, to be "Chalabied" (misled by an opposition leader hoping to use American power to achieve his own ends).
Second, some reports have stated that participants opposed the use of force as an option. I actually took no position; my point was that all courses of action have costs (there are no 'no-cost' solutions) and have to be carefully assessed.
Does Harry Reid realize that none of us will be voting for him this year?!! Not that he needs our votes to begin with.
