Tehran also offered to make its nuclear program “more transparent” if the US ended its hostility towards Iran.
Although the state department was keen on the idea, Vice President Cheney rejected it out of hand.
It raises two questions: is the Vice President the real Commander-in-Chief; and, how many American and Iraqi lives may have been spared had the US responded positively four years ago?
