Hosted by

At the White House today, President Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, starting off several intense weeks of Middle East diplomacy that will culminate with President Obama's speech to the Muslim world from Egypt next month. While Netanyahu is focused on Iran's nuclear program, Obama wants Palestinian peace talks to start up again. So begins the latest period of Middle East diplomacy. We hear about their differences as well as their common interests in terms of domestic politics and foreign affairs.
