"At least they could have talked to them,"

The above link is to an extremely interesting article in today's New York times alleging that in the run up to war the Iraqi regime pursued a deal with the us through backchannel communications. According to the sources in the article the Iraqi leadership was willing to concede to just about all of our requests, if only we had been bothered to try and meet with them to discuss it-someone explain that to every family missing someone around the thanksgiving table this year. According to the article the Iraqis were willing to give American inspectors full access to hunt for wmd's, generous oil rights, and was even willing to hold free elections in the next two years. Kinda shits all over any pretense for military action huh? This information had better be on the table when the senate intelligence committee reviews what got us here.
