Zbig Brzezinski's Brainstorm: Invite Iran To Kibitz On Afghanistan

Great idea.  While we're at it, let's invite al Qaeda to a conference on Israel's future . . .

On Morning Joe today, Zbigniew Brzezinski recommended that the US organize an "international conference" on Afghanistan's future—and invite Iran to participate. The former Carter National Security Advisor didn't say what positive contributions he might expect from a country working in defiance of international sanctions to develop nuclear weapons and which has stated its desire to wipe Israel off the map. 

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI:  I think we have to have some sort of an international conference drawing in the neighbors of Afghanistan into the process regarding the future of Afghanistan.  And that means, among others, the Iranians. So, there are a number of things we need to do, difficult as they are, in order to accomplish the objective the president set for himself.

Zbig's daughter Mika could be heard uttering a [quizzical?] "hmm" in response.  Will any of the MSM pick up on Brzezinski's suggestion?  Might Pres. Obama take a cue from Carter's man?
