WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration is preparing to declare that Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps is a foreign terrorist organization, senior administration officials said yesterday. If imposed, the declaration would signal a more confrontational turn in the administration's approach to Iran and would be the first time the United States has added the armed forces of any sovereign government to its list of terrorist organizations. The Revolutionary Guard is thought to be the largest branch of Iran's military.

Just last week, I climbed out on a limb to announce that "Homeland" was officially out of the woods and back on the safe side of the proverbial shark. Then this week happened. By the end of episode nine, I felt like Dana crying in her motel room: “Just promise me I'll never have to see you again…” Episode nine finally gave viewers the moment that this entire season has been building toward: the reunion of Carrie and Brody. And I have to admit that pretty-much everything about this episode was terrible.

LONDON -- With tough new U.S. sanctions against Iran in effect, the next step falls to European nations. The unilateral U.S. action might be effective only if they agree on strict measures of their own. European officials worried yesterday that the Bush administration's designation of Iranian agencies and companies as supporters of terrorism and purveyors of weapons threatens efforts to bring Iran back into diplomatic negotiations. That could impede relations with Tehran for years to come, some analysts said.

Washington is preoccupied with two all-consuming debates right now. First, of course, is Syria. President Barack Obama placed his faith in two wholly untrustworthy figures. Syrian President Bashar Assad has shown himself to be a consummate liar, and Russian President Vladimir Putin's overarching goals on Syria are to protect Mr. Assad and show up the United States. Meantime, Democrats and Republicans are locked in ever more hostile arguments over the price that right-wing zealots are trying to exact to pass the annual budget and extend the debt ceiling.

DES MOINES, Iowa -- The major Democratic presidential contenders criticized President Bush yesterday for continuing to ratchet up danger warnings about Iran despite an intelligence report that shows Tehran has not pursued nuclear weaponry recently. In one of the final debates before Iowa holds its leadoff caucuses Jan. 3, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois also said he believed the next president might have to address the public on the need for "drastic" action to deal with global warning because research shows the problem might be accelerating.

The strong showing by the most moderate of the six presidential candidates who were allowed to run in Iran's national elections last week is a sign that the Iranian people — if not the conservative clerics who have final say on policy matters — are ready for a change. The Obama administration should seize the opportunity and attempt to reopen talks with the new president-elect in order to seriously explore whether he can move his country toward resolving the issues surrounding Iran's nuclear program in a way that leads to better relations with the West.

BAGHDAD -- Despite continuing high tensions between the U.S. and Iran, five Iranians who have been held by the U.S. military in Iraq since January received their first visit from Iranian diplomats yesterday. The meeting took place at a U.S. military facility in or around Baghdad, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told the Los Angeles Times. "We've been working on this for quite some time, to organize a consular visit for the Iranian Embassy to visit their detainees with the U.S. military," Zebari said.

BEIRUT, Lebanon -- Iran's supreme leader warned government opponents Monday to end a campaign of civil disobedience while defiant reformists proposed a nationwide referendum to resolve the ongoing dispute over the country's recent presidential election. Meanwhile, the elite Revolutionary Guard sought to consolidate its power by moving to take control of the oil industry and by meddling in the higher education curriculum. The moves show that neither supporters of opposition figure Mir Hossein Mousavi nor the camp backing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are backing down five weeks after an election marred by allegations of vote fraud.

WASHINGTON -- In a confrontation in the strategically important Strait of Hormuz on Sunday, five Iranian boats took aggressive actions near three U.S. naval vessels, a Pentagon spokesman said yesterday, calling the brief standoff "reckless and dangerous." The incident, which lasted about 20 minutes and ended uneventfully, took place in international waters, said the spokesman, Bryan Whitman. The American vessels were a destroyer, a frigate and a cruiser. The Iranian government said the episode ended immediately when the vessels recognized one another, Whitman and other officials, however, described a tense confrontation in the strait, a narrow, vital passage through which millions of barrels of oil are shipped every day. Oil prices on world markets spurted briefly on the news, which was first reported by CNN yesterday morning.

BEIRUT - -Deft diplomacy and regional security woes are driving Iran and the United States toward a deal on Iran's nuclear program, experts say, illustrated by movement Wednesday in talks to transfer most of the Islamic Republic's fissile material abroad to be processed for medical uses. Iranian, American, Russian and French diplomats agreed to a proposal by the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, for most of Iran's stockpile of nuclear material to be sent to Russia and France for further processing for an Iranian medical reactor.
