BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS: Former Middle East envoy Dennis Ross has worked to achieve Middle East peace throughout President Clinton's final days in office.

No, you must be thinking of Israelis in Jenin. The Duke wouldn't do that.

Sorry, Yasser, too late.
An old thread worth rereading.
Are you having fun... I'm having fun.
