He certainly has shown himself more as a sheep among wolves. First there was the Russian “reset,” then the

Cuban détente. Now – coming soon to a foreign-policy playhouse near you – the Iranian appeasement.

Talks between Western diplomats and their Iranian counterparts appeared to be at a stalemate Sunday as the deadline to reach a comprehensive agreement about the fate of Tehran's nuclear program crept closer.

As Washington assesses its next moves, it would be wise to reconsider the judgments that have underwritten its approach to one of its most elusive adversaries.

It has been almost a year since the start of negotiations between the P5 + 1 countries (USA, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program. However, it appears unlikely that an agreement will be reached by the November 24 deadline. Indeed, the best that can be expected by then, according to at least one Western official, is “the outline of a final deal, but probably not the deal itself.”
