Considering what a transformation next month's Neighbors Summit in Baghdad potentially represents for the conflict in Iraq, its diplomatic planning is receiving cursory coverage. ABC did not mention it. CBS' Jim Axelrod briefly outlined the schedule from the White House. NBC offered a videophone stand-up from Teheran. Ian Williams said Iran has accepted Iraq's invitation "very cautiously…they want to avoid this summit turning into a session of fingerpointing" about Iran's alleged arming of Shiite militias. Axelrod wondered how much Iraqi appetite there is anyway to "take on the tough stuff--like Iranian explosives targeting US troops."
