I am felling that agile development does not work if the team is geographically located. The team may have to attend meetings at weird times many time a week.

Some distributed Agile development were a real success.
For instance........ Eclipse.

The Eclipse team has created a process based on Agile, called The Eclipse Way

It is usually admitted that the more you need formalism, the more your process must be robust

Depending on your needs, you can adopt (and adapt) 3 different processes all based on Agile.
- OpenUP (small collocated teams)
- Eclipse Way (distributed teams, low level of formalism)
- RUP (distributed teams, traceability, high ceremony)

The point is that a team needs to communicate. If they can't meet at least once a day, the project will suffer, Agile or not.
