Jon Snow thinks back to his visit to Tehran in March. He had a meeting with a mysterious 'Mr Jafri', a man incredibly high up in the National Security Council, the second highest office in the land.
This mysterious gentlemen seemed to be offering something of an olive branch to the US, or at least a chance to discuss how deal with the increasing strife between Shias and Sunnis in Iraq.
History doesn't relate what happened the offer at that date. But Jon Snow learns that Mr Jafri is in London. Are there some back door negotiations going on? About Lebanon, Iraq, or both?
And what would happen if they tried front door negotiations?
