President Obama said in an interview that he has failed to advance the Middle East peace process “the way I wanted.”
“I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted,” he told WJLA-TV, the ABC affiliate in Washington, on Sunday in response to a question on whether there was “anything you believe you failed at, not because Congress wouldn’t play ball, but that rests squarely on your shoulders.”
Obama said, “It’s something we focused on very early. But the truth of the matter is, that the parties, they’ve got to want it as well.
Have Obama’s efforts really failed?
