Appearing on MSNBC this afternoon, Iraq surge architect Fred Kagan criticized direct talks with Iran and made his case for attacking Iran, claiming it is the only means to “force” the country to halt its nuclear program:

There are a variety of things you can do short of an attack and hope that they will work, but hope is not a method here.
