Saddam Hussein proposed elections, disarmament, help with war on terror:
It was in January 2003 when the Syrians initiated the effort through an intermediary seeking to open a back-channel of communication with policymakers in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The request came through this writer's office.
At the time, a spokesman for the Central Intelligence Agency was quoted as saying the Iraqis should be told the United States will "see them in Baghdad." The spokesman added that the CIA was to have had a meeting three months earlier with Iraqis to discuss similar terms but Iraqi participants never showed up. Recent evidence, however, reveals a meeting had occurred in 2002 on similar unconditional terms, which the CIA had rejected.
The U.S.military announced today that it has just signed its final paychecks for one of the riskier programs it’s ever undertaken: inducing the coalescence of ex-Sunni insurgents into the quasi-governmental militias called the Sons of Iraq. The program was hated and opposed by the Shiite-led government, and now that government is in control of it, officially beginning its payroll to the militias on April 1.
In American Pravda:
The Obama administration is moving quickly to overhaul American policy on the Middle East, sending top envoys to the region and promising to push hard for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. That's an overhaul? CHANGE, my ass!
President Bush Meets with President Abbas September 20, 2006:
PRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. President, thank you for coming. Yesterday, in my speech to the United Nations, I said that you're a man of peace who believes in a two-state solution. And after our conversation today, once again you confirmed that.Egypt awards OIC head with state medal
I, too, believe that the best way to bring peace to the Holy Land is for two democratic states living side-by-side in peace. I said in my speech yesterday that the Palestinian state must have territorial integrity. I firmly believe that. I also said in my speech that the -- one of the great objectives of my administration is to achieve this vision. I fully understand that in order to achieve this vision, there must be leaders willing to speak out and act on behalf of people who yearn for peace, and you are such a leader, Mr. President.
I can't thank you enough for the courage you have shown. I assure you that our government wants to work with you in order -- so that you're able -- capable of delivering the vision that so many Palestinians long for, and that is a society in which they can raise their children in peace and hope. And I know that society is possible. And I appreciate your vision along those lines.
So, welcome to Washington, D.C. [sic] I think this is our fifth visit. Every time, I've left our visits inspired by your vision.

FBI raids office of D.C. CTO, Obama appointee
Federal agents this morning are searching the Judiciary Square office of Washington, D.C.'s Chief Technology Officer.FBI Arrests Two After Raiding Office of Obama's Pick for "Information Officer"
The search is part of "an ongoing investigation," said a spokeswoman for the FBI's D.C. Field Office, Lindsay Gotwin, said. She declined to comment further.
FBI agents have made two arrests after raiding the D.C. office of the man tapped to be President Obama's chief information officer, sources told FOX News. The agents on Thursday morning raided the office of Vivek Kundra, who was leaving his post as the D.C. chief technology officer to join the administration. The investigation is related to allegations of corruption, one source said, but is not targeting Kundra. FBI agents arrested a District of Columbia government worker, Yusuf Acar, as well as Sushil Bansal, who works for a company called Advanced Integrated Technologies Corp, sources said. Both are expected in court later Thursday.Archaeologists discover Byzantine-era church in Jerusalem hills
