Inquiring Minds Want to Know

Well, Senator Obama, would you have met with Adolph Hitler in 1939?  Based on your stated policy, I think you would have.  If not, how do you differentiate that situation with your stated position that you would meet with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea without preconditions (July 2007)?  And in your statement today, responding to President Bush’s brilliant speech in Israel (which was apparently not directed at you, but you assumed it was), you did what you’ve done in the past, i.e., claim past presidents share your unique view of diplomacy.  But the question remains, would you have met with Hitler in 1939 — without preconditions?
