Sec. Clinton didn't do so bad, herself . . .


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced from Cairo a ceasefire fire between Israel and Hamas in a deal brokered by Egypt.

Clinton described the crisis as "a critical moment for the region."

The agreement is effective at 2:00 pm ET Wednesday, according to the AP.

The White House was optimistic there would be at least a ceasefire with someone at the level of Clinton heading to the region.

Readout of the President’s Call to Prime Minister Netanyahu

President Obama spoke to Prime Minister Netanyahu today and reiterated his commitment to Israel’s security.

The President made clear that no country can be expected to tolerate rocket attacks against civilians.

The President expressed his appreciation for the Prime Minister’s efforts to work with the new Egyptian government to achieve a sustainable ceasefire and a more durable solution to this problem.

The President commended the Prime Minister for agreeing to the Egyptian ceasefire proposal – which the President recommended the Prime Minster do – while reiterating that Israel maintains the right to defend itself.

The President said that the United States would use the opportunity offered by a ceasefire to intensify efforts to help Israel address its security needs, especially the issue of the smuggling of weapons and explosives into Gaza.

The President said that he was committed to seeking additional funding for Iron Dome and other US-Israel missile defense programs.
