Honor among thieves: Obama treats Ahmadinejad in spirit of 'mutual respect'

On Tuesday, I reported that Iran had prepared a new proposal regarding its nuclear weapons program, in a bid to head off new sanctions from the United States and its European allies. On Wednesday, the Washington Times reports that US and European diplomats say that they have seen 'no such proposal.' But in what can only be described as honor among thieves (Obama also stole an election by collecting millions in campaign contributions in violation of US federal election laws), the Obama administration says that it will treat any proposal received from the even less legitimate Ahmadinejad in a spirit of 'mutual respect.'
Both State Department spokesman Ian C. Kelly and Cristina Gallach, spokeswoman for European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, said they had not seen any new proposal.

Still, the Obama administration, which has promised to engage Iran despite its crackdown on protesters after the disputed June presidential elections, said it would talk if a real offer materializes.

The Obama administration "would review any proposal that they give us seriously and in the spirit of mutual respect," Mr. Kelly said.
What could go wrong?

"Mutual respect?" When has Obama treated Israel in the spirit of mutual respect.

How Orwellian!
