Should Obama Have Sent Russia's President a Secret Letter?

Obama sends the Russian president a secret letter on Iran.


It was reported yesterday that President Obama sent a secret letter to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. In the letter, Obama offers that the United States will back down on its Eastern European missile defense ambitions if Russia helps dissuade Iran from developing long-range weapons. Should President Obama have sent a secret letter to the Russian leader? To what extent can Russia help the United States persuade Iran to abandon its nuclear program? What other concessions might the United States have to make in future diplomatic attempts to woo Russia? Post your thoughts.
