President Obama is working hard to tamp down talk that he’s going to forge a new and expansive peace agreement when he visits Israel in the next couple weeks.
But the president didn’t take a peace plan off the table. One unnamed person who spoke to CBS after the meeting said the president suggested during the meeting that a peace deal could be discussed in the next 6 to 12 months.
Israeli media is reporting that Mr. Obama will arrive on March 20, though the White House has not confirmed that date.
