    Ross served as Clinton's envoy to the Middle East for 8 years, and before that worked for GHW Bush in a similar capacity. He achieved nothing, culminating with the Camp David disagreement (2000) that was followed by Intifada II.

No wonder Abbas doesn't want to see him, he is dangerously useless, taking Obama down with him.
