"America’s strategic policy toward Iran must be comprehensive and include a wide-lens view of Iran and the entire Middle East. It is a strategic mistake to believe that the US can successfully pursue a policy that segments Iranian and US interests. Iraq, nuclear capabilities, terrorism, Israel and oil are all part of an Iranian puzzle game that cannot be played one piece at a time. A clear inventory of Middle East realities frame America’s options and policies."American Footprints had a nice post regarding Chuck Hagel's piece on Iran. Foreign policy is one of Chuck Hagel's strengths and is a critical reason for why we should support him to be the next President.
The Washington Post has a nice article on Senator Hagel's call for diplomacy with Iran along with others.
