Bolton says Mideast peace plan should be dropped

clipped from
Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton is calling on the president to dump his effort to broker peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

According to Bolton, it is not President Bush who is seeking a Mideast peace legacy before leaving Washington, but rather Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. He says with less than a year left in Washington, Rice is putting the pressure on the more reasonable party -- which is Israel. But Bolton argues there is no Palestinian leader who can make commitments or follow through on them, so there is no prospect for diplomatic progress.
