Iran's Spin on Recent Talks with the U.S.

Iranian FARS News Agency:

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Americans requested negotiations with Iran becausewe maintained self-confidence and spoke from a powerful stance, said Ali Akbar Velayati, , Advisor to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

I was cautiously optimistic about the prospect of talks with Iran, hoping that some progress would be made. But reading about Iran's gloating after the meeting, coupled with the American media's penchant to accentuate the historic aspects of these high level talks, my stomach turns and I'm having second thoughts.
