Russert: You said last week the president should negotiate directly with Iran. Why?

Hagel: I think you could make a pretty strong case that things are worse off in the Middle East today than they were three years ago. By measurement of Iraq, by Iran, by the Palestinian-Israeli issue, what’s going on in Egypt. And, I think the United States must use its force of diplomacy to engage Iran.

I'm glad to see he's interested in diplomacy when it comes to Iran.

TP posts a Newsweek article that supports this claim.
