Back on Track: Israel and the US Mend Their Ties

Hosted by

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was in Washington, DC yesterday, for a meeting with President Obama, in what was widely described as an opportunity to highlight the strong ties between the two countries, after a difficult meeting in March. But what's next? Netanyahu spoke out on Israeli concerns about Iran and also about peace talks with the Palestinians. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, what will Israel do about mending relations with Turkey, which have been strained over the Gaza humanitarian flotilla? Also, the latest Field Poll calls the governor's race a "virtual tie," and an independent inquiry responds to the controversy over the climate change research scandal. Guest host Sara Terry sits in for a vacationing Warren Olney.
