CENTURY CITY, Calif., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly two
hundred members and guests of the Pacific Council on International Policy
gathered last night to hear Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) wide-ranging
survey of U.S. Policy in the Middle East.
Feinstein says U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice should be given
more time to devote to the Israel-Palestine peace deal. With less than a
year-and-a-half left in office, Feinstein says passing a settlement bill is
the Bush Administration's best option for leaving a foreign policy legacy.
Referring to brokering a peace deal in the region, Feinstein says she told
Rice, "Go there for four months if you have to. Go there and get it done."
Senator Feinstein engaged in an onstage interview with Executive Vice
President and Editor of the Los Angeles Times, Jim O'Shea, and was
introduced by Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher Partner, the Honorable Mel Levine.
KTTV Channel 11 News Anchor Christine Devine emceed the event.
