Your “Obama says there’s hope for Middle East peace” has all its meat removed. Tasty to dogs at best, we miss any statement that calls upon Palestinians to resume direct peace negotiations.
The whole report keeps singing the same old song that there should be direct talks, but your reporter seems as incapable to see the elephant in the room as the Palestinians to see the beam in their own eyes.
A missed chance to inform the public.
(The second paragraph has Obama as subject without a predicate.)
