When President Barack Obama spoke before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee some weeks ago, he admonished those who engaged in "loose talk of war" about Iran. But apparently, writes Sheldon Richman, Obama's secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, didn't get the memo. She recently told Iran its "window of opportunity" for avoiding a military confrontation was closing rapidly. The Obama administration keeps saying it wants peace in the Middle East. When is it going to start acting like it?
