Senior U.S. officials meet with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia to review Sharon's plans for unilateral disengagement from the Palestinians. The plan includes an Israeli pullback from most Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip, but Palestinians fear Sharon will want to annex the West Bank in exchange. Hear NPR's Linda Gradstein.
