Mideast Peace

NPR's Ted Clark reports that as U-S Middle East peace mediator Dennis Ross wound up yet another effort to get peace talks on track, U-S Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said "some" progress had been made, but not enough to revive serious negotiations. With Palestinians deeply dejected by the stalled peace process, the U-S has begun to consider other options, including disengagement from the talks, but the State Department remains unwilling to completely abandon its mediation efforts.
