by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Open Reply to Ari Fleischer: Peace Between Two Presidents  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“On the subject of President William Clinton’s role in Middle East peace negotiations, he made only two notable mistakes: ... he allowed the exclusion of the two issues on which an actual Middle East peace depends, absolutely: the issue of economic development, and especially, the issue of mass desalination.”
