So Condi met with Putin today
Why so secretive? :wtf:
=======

MOSCOW (AP) Visiting U.S. national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday discussed the next steps necessary to bring stability to Iraq, a country on which Washington and Moscow have rarely seen eye to eye.

The ITAR-Tass and Interfax news agencies quoted an unidentified Kremlin official as saying Rice brought Putin a letter from President Bush. The official did not discuss the letter's content.

-snip-

Putin and Rice talked about "various issues relating to Russian-U.S. cooperation, as well as key international problems, including the situation around Iraq and in the Middle East," Putin's office said in a terse statement.

-snip

On Saturday, she met separately with Putin chief of staff Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov and the secretary of the presidential Security Council, Igor Ivanov. All her meetings were closed to the media.

2. I think anyone who meets with anyone from the Bush administration
whether it be Ms. Rice or Powell or anyone must certainly realize the lame duck this admimistration is fast becoming.

Anything that is released or said by Putin, or anyone else, has got to be a platitude.

They all know that the stupid Bush is toast.

3. Bush*'s initial paragraph:

Dear Puty:
I remember when I looked into your eyes and saw a kindred soul, full of kindness and friendship. Now, I need help. I need to get my chestnuts out of the fire.

5. Condi in Russia
In addition to talking Putin into supporting a UN resolution and maybe sending Russian troops to Iraq (HOW IRONIC), she's probably meeting people and setting up contacts with Russian government big-wigs. Maybe her true goal is to impress potential clients of the lobbyist-PR firm for Russian tycoons that she plans to start in January 1995. She's following in Kissinger's footsteps, no doubt.
