Clinton Rejects Israeli Claims of Accord on Settlements - washingtonpost.com
Oral contract - not worth the paper it's written on:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton forcefully rejected yesterday Israeli claims that the Bush administration had secretly agreed to expanding Jewish settlements on the West Bank, deepening the impasse between the two countries.
But the Israel-firsters that worked under Bush, such as Elliott Abrams, continue to insist that such promises were made. Well, they certainly should not be kept.
