    The U.S. knows Barak very well from the abortive negotiations at Camp David. Wasn't it Bill Clinton who was reported to have said that Barak was the most pretentious person he'd every met? Now the U.S. is blaming Barak for their own incompetent handling of the peace negotiations?? Give me a break. If it's true, then they're even more incompetent than we thought. The U.S.'s first mistake was bringing up new issues like the settlements which weren't issues before, and thus creating out of thin air an obstacle which eventually torpedoed the negotiations. Now everyone is locked back into their old positions. Well, Obama thought he was currying favor with the Moslems--that seems to have worked out well, huh? Just don't go blaming everyone else for your own mistakes.
