The girl's name Sheherezade \shehe-reza-de, sheher(e)-zade\ is of Arabic, Farsi and Persian origin, and its meaning is "city dweller". In "A Thousand and One Arabian Nights", Sheherazade tells one tale to her royal husband each night. Having been betrayed by his first wife, the husband had resolved to marry a different virgin each day, and kill at dawn. So fascinating were Sheherazade's stories, however, that the king let her live so that he could keep hearing them. He eventually fell in love with her.
Never said I trust Sheherezade or any of the MSM. In fact, last week I was pointing out the hit on the WRAMC, while other FReepers jumped on the MSM bandwagon. But one cannot deny that this "conference" is taking place.
Talking with the Iranians was key to the Baker Commission Report (ISG), which was loudly and soundly decried on this forum.
But, inch by inch, it is being implemented.
Talking or negotiating, it's just a matter of semantics. Someone used leverage to get this meeting. We're playing HIS game.
Stay tuned. I'm looking up some links from last summer...
