That does sound like a meritorious proposal.

It would require Bush to acknowledge a) that the insurgency is not a monolithic structure of "terrorists" that is indistinguishable from Osama, and b) that negotiating with an enemy is sometimes necessary. I am not sure he is capable of either of those. He would have to admit two pretty serious mistakes (misunderstanding the insurgency and taking a valuable if deeply unpleasant diplomatic option off the table).
