Syrian Meeting is On
Well the rumors proved true and Secretary of State Rice did meet with the Syrian foreign minister Walid Moallem for a half-hour at the conference at Sharm el-Sheik in Egypt. This is good news. The US needs to keep it's communications open to all parties, particularly in the Middle East. By all accounts the meeting was cordial and professional. Hopefully, this will be the start of more productive conversations. Thanks again to Nancy Pelosi for starting this ball rolling.
