The Biden/Iranian Connection

The American Spectator:
"Biden has spoken in the past about his support for a nonaggression pact with Iran as means of discouraging that country's pursuit of nuclear weapons. A nonaggression pact was part of the discussion between Biden and Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi, during a 90-minute meeting the two men had on January 23, 2004, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Biden had not sought approval from the Bush administration for the meeting, despite the fact that the United States continues to hold the policy that there are no official relations with Iran. The fact that he used the meeting to criticize President Bush, his administration and the approach of then Secretary of State Colin Powell probably had something to do with that. According to the State Department source, Kharrazi returned to his delegation saying believing Biden was a man Iran could work with to both get diplomatic relations up and running while also building an nuclear arsenal."
Emphasis Mongo's. What was Joe doing? Can you say aid and comfort? Let us refresh our memories...

Clause 1: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. "
