Obama on talks with Ahmadinejad
I bet I've been closer to Ahmadinejad then either Obama or Clinton.
I was walking back to work past Prime Minister Maliki's compound in the IZ and was stopped by Ahmadiejad's convey driving in for the visit with Maliki.
I would have taken a picture but my battle-buddy said it was not a good idea to point anything at the convey as Ahmadiejad's folks were cocked-and-loaded.
They did have a window rolled down and waved at us as they drove into Maliki's compound. A few weeks later we started taking incoming Iranian made Rockets from Sadr City.
So much for talks.
