After a long-winded introduction by Dean Schwartz and much genuflecting to Rep. Ellison we are treated to a discourse of three individuals who are pretty much in agreement about dialogue with Iran.
Human rights there are briefly treated and little or nothing is said about Iran's role in supporting terrorism (including actions in Syria today)and in Lebanon, and Argentina, and Iraq in the past.
So is dialogue the answer?
Was it not "robust" enough in the past?
I'm reminded of the definition of insanity; that is trying something over and over, getting the same result, and expecting the result next time to be different.
