Middle America: Furious attack by Michael Ledeen

Middle America: "Indeed, its release was met with a furious attack by Michael Ledeen, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, who is particularly close to both former Defense Policy Board chairman Richard Perle and Defense Under Secretary for Policy Douglas Feith, and who has long asserted that Iran is ripe for revolution by 'democratic' forces that deserve US support.

Ledeen, who considers Tehran the global capital of Islamist 'terror masters', wrote in National Review Online that the CFR recommendations were 'humiliating' and constituted 'appeasement'.

They were made worse, he added, in light of leaks last weekend that the soon-to-be-released final report of the bipartisan commission investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks will assert that Iran provided members of al-Qaeda, including some of the hijackers, safe passage during the year before the attacks.
