I've Been Thinking:
President Obama has an interview in this weeks Time magazine.
He admits that he overestimated his ability to bring the Palestinians and the Israelis to a mutual agreement.

Exactly one year ago the new president insisted on a total settlement freeze as a precondition to talks between Israelis and Palestinians. 365 days later there has been no progress.
Middle East analysts are now singing a round of "I told you so."
