"Secret Letter"

The NY Times reports that the Obama administration sent a "secret" letter to the Russian President Dmitri Medveded offering to halt deployment of a ballistic missile shield in Poland in exchange for Russia's assistance in cajoling a recalcitrant Iran to give up its nuclear weapons program. Trade a mostly symbolic (and otherwise useless) missile shield for Russia's help on an Iranian program that is proceeding apace? Sounds like a good plan to me.
