White House Debates Iran Rapprochement
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The administration of President Barack Obama has been
divided over whether the United States should launch a dramatic rapprochement with Iran.
Administration sources said the White House has been debating a proposed
initiative in which Obama would visit Iran and declare reconciliation with
the mullah regime. They said Obama's leading advisers have argued that this
would mark a legacy for a president whose prospects for reelection in 2012
appeared to be rapidly fading.
