    Your thought process confuses me. Barak's offer to Arafat at Camp David was the subject. I reported the details of the offer and you repeated Clintons opinion of the offer. You said you did not know whether to believe me or Clinton. I said nothing for you to believe or not believe. You read the facts of the offer and either you agree with Clinton or not. You question the reporting on the Camp David offer because I did not mention Taba. TABA WAS NOT THE SUBJECT, neither were the 1979 talks or Olmerts 2009 offer. Taba was as close as the two sides ever came to an agreement. But Clinton left office and Bush became president, Barak had two weeks before elections. Barak lost the election to Sharon and the talks never resumed. Israeli FM Shlomo Ben-Ami said "We are closer than ever to the possibility of striking a final deal." Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said," My heart breaks, because I know we were so close. We need six more weeks to conclude the drafting." But time ran out.
