The New York Times reported on Sunday, October 21, that the United States and Iran had for the first time agreed in principal on one-on-one negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. This was according to Obama administration officials who are apparently setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran. The same information source stated that Iranian officials have insisted that the talks wait until after the US presidential election on November 6. The Iranians have told their US counterparts that they want to know with whom they would be negotiating.

According to The New York Times, when this announcement leaked from the White House with less than twenty-four hours before the final presidential debate, one must assume that this is President Obama’s October surprise. It is, however, just the opposite; it’s an Iranian gift to the president to help him win the presidency.
