Talking to the Iranians Actually Works
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

Last week Secretary Gates told reporters that EFP attacks in Iraq were way down and that Iran had curbed its supply efforts into Iran. Today the U.S. military announced that it would release nine Iranian "captives" (Best to avoid the word diplomat or intelligence operative).  According to Rear Adm. Gregory Smith, director of the Multi-National Force-Iraq's communications division:

Iran appeared to have kept its promise to stop the flow into Iraq of bomb-making materials and other weaponry that Washington says has inflamed insurgent and militia violence and killed hundreds of U.S. forces.

Look at that.  Diplomacy works.
