James Baker: Talking to the Enemy is not Appeasement

In May of 2006, John McCain said former Secretary of State James Baker was one of the "smartest" men he knew and that he was likely to ask Baker to serve as a diplomatic envoy to the Middle East. Speaking to an Israeli newspaper, McCain added "I know you in Israel don't like Baker."

Baker's comments about "appeasement" came on October 6, yet within a matter of days, McCain had once again included Baker on the list of his potential Middle East diplomats.
