“The government of the Islamic Republic is clearly an adversary, but it is also a rational actor…the United States must make clear that we do not seek to overthrow the Iranian regime.  Iranian paranoia on this issue is virtually limitless and understandably so.  In 1953, the American and British intelligence services ousted a democratically elected Iranian prime minister, an episode that very few Americans remember and no Iranian will ever forget.”

– Former Ambassador Ryan Crocker, dean of the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M, advocating negotiations with Iran in the New York Times last November
