H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel have had two days of rather intense conversations. Obama said he 'has Israel's back' but there have been no written guarantees about anything. More.
Foreign Policy Magazine Morning Brief:
Top story: President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in the Oval Office on Monday to try to coordinate their policies toward Iran. However, according to a White House official, it failed to resolve the basic disagreements between the two leaders over how to respond to Iran's nuclear program.MEANWHILE, in a glaring example of democracy in Iran there will be a...
Netanyahu said that Israel had not made a decision to launch a military strike against Iran, but sounded a skeptical note that international sanctions and isolation would force Tehran to abandon its nuclear program. He also made the case that the White House should not resume negotiations with Iran until it agreed to suspend its uranium enrichment procedures.
Obama, meanwhile, emphasized that sanctions were doing grave damage to the Iranian economy and could still force Tehran to negotiate over its nuclear program. The president highlighted impending EU oil sanctions and sanctions against Iran's central bank as evidence that pressure on Iran was escalating.
While the two leaders could not bridge the gap between their respective positions, they did agree to quiet down the talk of war in their countries. Obama had raised the concern that fears of a strike on Iran were driving up oil prices, and thereby undermining sanctions.
New trial for accused American spy: Iran's Supreme Court threw out a death penalty conviction against Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine accused of espionage, and ordered a new trial. [Links and more @ FP Morning Brief]In OTHER peace efforts... Foreign Policy Magazine Middle East Daily Brief reports:
Iran said it will allow International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) investigators access to its Prachin military site, where the U.N. nuclear watchdog reported last year that explosives tests were conducted showing "strong indicators" of nuclear weapons development. IAEA officials made comments that they "have heard about possible sanitation" of the site but were denied access to the complex during a visit in February. According to Iranian diplomats in Vienna, "Parchin is a military site and accessing it is a time-consuming process, therefore visits cannot be allowed frequently." The announcement came as Iran has tripled its monthly production of higher-grade enriched uranium and IAEA chief Yukya Amano expressed concerns Monday about "activities...ongoing at the Parchin site."

And EVERYONE is waiting to see if Ron Paul can win one in his home state of Virginia.
«o» The Sacramento California student protest had a moderate turnout of 15,000 yesterday with a number of raucous rallies around the Capitol, and they actually made it into the capitol building, but in the evening the police moved in and made fifty five arrests.
«o» A judge has ruled that all DUI arrests in San Francisco from 2006 until now are invalid! Because the police were pressing the wrong button... The TEST button, and every test was the same. No one in the department noticed. Expect a massive Class Action suit against the city.
«o» FORMER presidential candiate John McCain took the floor of the Senate yesterday and stumped for immediate military intervention, including a ground and bombing campaign, against Syria... No one was there to hear it.
In OTHER News:
An endnote of McCain-like bizarreness... Harpers Weekly Review has a bit on Iran, and some other events as well:
...the wealthy are more likely to take candy from children... Who knew?President Obama affirmed his commitment to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. “When the chips are down,” he said “I have Israel’s back.” North Korea permitted the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect the country’s largest nuclear reactor in exchange for a quarter million tons of U.S. food aid. After the United States posted more than $5 million in bail, Egyptian officials lifted a travel ban imposed on seven Americans charged with operating unlicensed NGOs, leading Egypt’s parliament to open a probe. “We cannot accept any type of foreign intervention in Egypt’s affairs,” said house speaker Saad al-Katatni. The same day, the U.S. State Department publicly endorsed Egypt’s efforts to secure a $3.2 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund. Al Qaeda gunmen killed 25 Iraqi policemen in Haditha, and 140 people died in clashes following an Al Qaeda attack on army bases in southern Yemen. More than 200 Congolese died and at least 1,500 were wounded following a series of explosions at a munitions depot in Brazzaville. Vladimir Putin was elected president of Russia for the third time, thousands of opposition protesters rallied outside the Kremlin amid reports by international observers that the election was unfair, and a Moscow museum began staging a puppet show in which Putin comes to terms with the loss of his penis. Researchers determined that sperm cells lack a sense of smell, that American immigrants who speak English are healthier than those who do not, that the wealthy are more likely to take candy from children, and that Ötzi the Iceman was lactose intolerant. A section of the Great Wall of China was discovered in Mongolia.
