newsflash - u.s. team heading to iran

A specially-picked team of experts, after a briefing at the State Department, has flown to Iran. Progress on the diplomatic front? Signs of sanity in the de facto Bush Administration? A realization that sometimes, you DO have to talk to your enemies?

No such luck. It's the U.S. national men's wrestling team, heading to Iran -- a wrestling superpower -- for the Takhti Cup tournament.

We had ping-pong diplomacy with Mao's China back in the 1970s. Somehow, I doubt Bush will allow wrestling to play such a role.
