  • Obama forms ME task force/team led by former Clinton, Bush advisors,7...013573,00.html

    WASHINGTON – As chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's emissary Yitzhak Molcho continue their separate talks in Washington with US special envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell, the Obama administration is looking for new ideas to jumpstart the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

    The POLITICO website reported Thursday that the Obama administration is seeking new ideas from diplomats and former administration officials familiar with the Mideast conflict and on how to advance the peace process.

    According to the report, one task force has been convened by Sandy Berger and Stephen Hadley, former national security advisors to Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, respectively, to offer recommendations on the Middle East peace process to the National Security Council.

    Martin Indyk, who served twice as the US ambassador to Israel and is now vice president of foreign policy studies at Brookings Institution, held meetings this week with senior National Security Council Middle East/Iran advisor Dennis Ross, Palestinian negotiator Erekat, Israel’s Ambassador to the US Michael Oren, and others.

    Former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer told POLITICO that due to the lack of Israeli and Palestinian initiatives, the United States must develop its own initiative as "there is no other option".

    as you have seen, the Elite run the show.....there is no difference between the endgame of the Republicans or the Democrats....... mere varsity skirmishes about who personally will get to carry the football into the end zone; which is the New World Order..... who will be immortal in the history books.......
