Obama: I Failed To Move Peace Process

President Obama said in an interview that he has failed to move the Middle East peace process forward.

In an interview Sunday with WJLA, ABC’s Washington DC affiliate, Obama answered a question which asked if there was “anything you believe you failed at, not because Congress wouldn’t play ball, but that rests squarely on your shoulders?”

“I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted,” he 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.”

His comments came as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Israel for high level meetings on Iran, Syria and Egypt as well as the peace process. U.S. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon also visited Israel over the weekend for consultations.
