Clinton: No illusions about engagement with Iran

On CNN's GPS, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tells Fareed Zekaria that the United States has 'no illusions' that it will get the type of 'engagement' it wanted from Iran.
"We are under no illusions. We were under no illusions before their elections that we can get the kind of engagement we are seeking," she said in an interview with CNN's "GPS."

"The president has also said, look, we need to take stock of this in September. If there is a response, it needs to be on a fast track. We're not going to keep the window open forever," she said.

[US National Security Adviser James] Jones echoed Clinton's assessment that Washington had little choice, at this point, except to deal with Ahmadinejad, who was sworn in to a second term last week.

"We have to deal with the figures of authority that are in position," Jones said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Then what the hell have they been doing for the last six months? Why have they been pursuing 'engagement' with Iran if they knew (as we all did) that it wasn't going to happen anyway? Were they trying to give Iran more time to develop a nuclear weapon?

Something is really wrong here.
