"The Cafferty File": Obama talks drugs?Is now the time and is the United States the right place for a Middle East peace summit?
It's the right time and place for no one except George W. Bush. He ran his 2000 campaign and entered office as the un-Clinton. He refused to follow up on Clinton's efforts that came within an inch of establishing peace. Now he hopes to rescue his legacy with a photo op. -Ron, Canton, Georgia
Jack, For the first time in modern Israel's tumultuous 60-year history, all of the invited Middle Eastern countries concerned will be together in one place at the same time for the sole purpose of finding a permanent solution to the difficult Palestine autonomy issues which threaten world peace and security. James Baker's Iraq Study Group Report is finally getting the diplomatic credence it deserves, and while it is not a giant leap for mankind it is one small step forward.-Richard, Seattle, Washington
No, not anymore. The time for that is gone. We should have been pushing for peace a long time ago. Instead, we have been zipping around the region, causing instability, starting wars, and acting like morons. The damage is done. The best thing we can do now is let them handle it themselves, bring our troops home from Iraq, and tend to our national wounds. -Steve, Oak Creek, Wisconsin
Jack, 2 words… "Photo Op". -Mike, Minneapolis, Minnesota Where are we headed if a conservative like Pat Buchanan says "America is coming apart at the seams" and we may not recover?
Pat Buchanan is a hero! These are not new thoughts or conclusions. He has been warning of the mess we are in today for 20 years. -Bobbie, Poteau, Oklahoma
Jack, Being a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, oh, oops, I mean "progressive", I never would have thought I'd be agreeing with the likes of Pat Buchanan, but I agree wholeheartedly! We are headed into collapse and the day of reckoning is soon at hand! The OMB has been screaming this for awhile now! Wake up people! -Jim, Detroit, Michigan
All I know is that something is seriously, seriously wrong with the world when I start agreeing with Pat Buchanan... which I did around December 2000 by the way. -Melody, Calgary
Jack, Pat Buchanan has often been wrong, but when he's right, he's right. And this time, sadly, he is right. -Pat
