I’m heading back from Vienna, Austria to Washington, DC today. Had several interesting meetings, particularly with IAEA officials here. The technical expertise of those who work in the guts of the IAEA is extremely impressive.
Looks like the Baker-Hamilton report is getting leaked in bits and pieces. Glad it will say some of the things some of us have been saying for nearly two years. But then again, it’s remarkable that the basic findings of the study group are considered achievements.
As one Austrian think tank chief told me last night, it really didn’t take rocket scientists or even the star-studded political cast Baker and Hamilton assembled to come up with the roster of policy suggestions being made.
