Stephen Walt over at the new Foreign Policy blog quotes the Boston Globe which lists US scholars, practitioners and ‘senior statesmen’ that believe that the US ought to be negotiating with Hamas. In addition to Walt himself, it is rather distinguished bi-partisan list: Brent Scowcroft, Henry Siegman, Carla Hills, Ted Sorensen, Lee Hamilton, Zbigniew Brzezinski, James Wolfensohn, Nancy Kassebaum, Paul Volcker and Chuck Hagel. The odds, however, of the US administration following the UK example (who decided to recognise Hezbollah recently) appear to be slim. Here’s hoping I’m wrong.
