Is Antony Blinken being too nice in negotiations? | On Balance
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that a cease-fire and hostage-release agreement between Israel and Hamas is still possible, despite the two sides being far apart on the central terms for a deal. Blinken was in the region trying to broker an arrangement that could bring some respite in Israel’s war against Hamas. Those diplomatic efforts were rattled when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a detailed, three-phase plan by Hamas that would unfold over 4 1/2 months. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., joins "On Balance" to weigh in.
