Success At Nuclear Talks! Iran Agrees To....MORE TALKS!

I don't know about you but I'm feeling pretty silly right about now for doubting the world changing capabilities of Smart Power!

Iranian state television later reported that the negotiators for the seven nations agreed to hold further talks before the end of October.

Western diplomat sources confirmed such an announcement was planned and said preparations were also underway for the International Atomic Energy Agency to visit Iran's new enrichment facility near Qom before the next meeting takes place.

In the first such high-level talks between Washington and Tehran in years, the chief U.S. negotiator, Undersecretary of State William J. Burns, had a private discussion with his Iranian counterpart, Saeed Jalili, during the morning session of the conference, State Department spokesman Robert Wood said. He said he could not immediately offer any additional details. The meeting, which took place as the other delegations were getting ready for lunch, lasted 30 minutes, a Western diplomat said.

Wow, more talks! That's so awesome. This is so much different than all the talking and inspecting of Iranian facilities we've been doing until now. No, this is nothing like the almost 10 years that came before. It's different because this time it's S-M-A-R-T.

See? You don't, do you? Because you're a wingnut.

Of course, while we bask in the success of our amazing President and wait for the next round of talks, Iran continues work on producing a nuclear weapon but clearly, we got the better end of that deal.

Thank you Obama!

(No word on whether Undersecretary of State Burns had to wash any blood off his hands after shaking hands with his Iranian counterpart.)

EXCLUSIVE: Must Credit Ace Of Spades HQ---Obama plan to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons uncovered!

Step 1-Talk to Iran
Step 2- ???
Step 3- Victory!

Note: Some folks in the comments are saying Obama is abandoning sanctions. That's not the takeaway from this. What they said was they wouldn't push for them during this meeting but they are still possible in the future (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
