I have just secured a private letter -- not yet publicly released -- from Senator Chuck Hagel to President Bush and copied to Condoleezza Rice, Robert Gates, and Stephen Hadley. I should add that I did not receive this letter from Senator Hagel but from other sources.click link to read more at the washington note.
The letter urges the President to pursue "direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks with the Government of Iran."
This letter is a call for serious, level-headed rationality from one of the Senate's most stalwart "classic conservatives."
I have since learned that the letter somehow made its way to US Central Command Commander William Fallon, perhaps through Defense Secretary Gates or other avenues, and Fallon allegedly communicated with the Senator that serious articulations of American interests and consideration of the options Hagel recommends are much needed in this current political and policy environment.
