America's 'New Path' in the Middle East

Hosted by

Four years after the Bush Administration severed relations with Syria, Hillary Clinton says America's on a "New Path" to Middle East peace, and will send two diplomats to Damascus. The Secretary of State is in Jerusalem after talking so passionately yesterday about Israeli-Palestinian peace that Arab reporters applauded. Israel has not yet formed a new government after last month's election. The Palestinians are divided between Hamas and Fattah. Can Syria have a role in the peace process? What about Turkey? Will Iran respond to efforts to talk about its nuclear development?
