Iran's Ahmadinejad sends Bush a letter.

TEHRAN, Iran -
Iran's leader has written to President Bush proposing "new solutions" to their differences in the first letter from an Iranian head of state to an American president in 27 years, a government spokesman said Monday.
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki delivered the letter to the Swiss ambassador on Monday, ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told The Associated Press. The Swiss Embassy in Tehran houses a U.S. interests section.
In the letter, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad proposes "new solutions for getting out of international problems and the current fragile situation of the world," spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham told a news conference.

I hope its nothing like some of the letters we've gotten in the past. Remember these?

Seriously, I can't imagine any good news coming in a letter from this guy. More than likely it is just another attempt to slow down negotiations until Iran reaches its goal. Another concept worth looking at is "al-Taqiyya."

The word "al-Taqiyya" literally means: "Concealing or disguising one's beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury." A one-word translation would be"Dissimulation."
