Secret Negotiations

Obama's only been sworn in as President for a matter of days but members of his election campaign and of his transition team have been engaging in foreign diplomacy for months.

US President Barack Obama has already used experts within the last few months to hold high-level but discreet talks with both Iran and Syria, organizers of the meetings told AFP...even before winning the November 4 election, Obama unofficially used what experts call "track two" discussions to approach America's two foes in the region.

It's little wonder that Iran, in particular, thinks that the US is coming to them from a position of weakness now.
