It seems to me the US is keeping all options open by using vague terms ("creating a reality with both parties;" "direct negotiations;" "comparing positions and providing situation estimates;" "unhelpful for the negotiations and would actually make them more difficult;" "redouble US efforts before the vote") which can be interpreted in many ways. One thing is clear. None of what I have said so far commits the US to using the veto in September. Could it be Obama is thinking of the unthinkable?
