Settlements, War Crimes and Middle East Peace

Hosted by

President Obama has promised a "new start" with the world's Muslims, but Secretary of State Clinton is finding again that's easier said than done. In Morocco, she told Arab leaders the US will deliver on President Obama's promise of a "new start" with the Muslim world, but first backed away from earlier statements denounced by some of those same leaders as threatening to set back the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by ten years. In the meantime, Congress is about to formally agree with Israel and denounce the UN's "Goldstone Report" about war crimes before and during the invasion of Gaza.  We update US diplomacy in the Middle East and the prospects for getting peace talks started again.
