Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is in town to meet with top administration officials -- Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta --on Thursday before heading to New York for a session with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.
"There are no real expectations that Barak's consultations in the U.S. this week will result in any breakthrough on stalled peace process efforts," reports Laura Rozen in her Yahoo blog, The Envoy.  
Read the rest of her story for the latest on those efforts but especially for an interesting exclusive about a pair of accomplished historians and writers turned diplomats -- one American and one Israeli -- meeting over lunch yesterday and who was seen browsing through one of their books at a local shop.
