Kissinger on Iraq, shifting gears

The Washington Note: "Henry Kissinger has disclosed today in his important Washington Post op-ed, 'Stability in Iraq and Beyond,' that he believes America should engage in discussions with Syria and Iran.

This is a big leap beyond the wrong-headed advice that Kissinger reportedly gave Bush and Cheney on Iraq, as reported by Bob Woodward, that 'victory is the only exit.'

Although there are nuanced difference in Kissinger's essay today and the proposals of the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group, they are remarkably close. And both essentially call for a 'new diplomatic offensive.'"
