It Ain't Funny

Remember this exchange:

QUESTION: Minister Lieberman...about some interesting proposals on settlements.  Could you elaborate on what they might be?...And then for Secretary Clinton, does that mean there is some wiggle room to your statement that there should be no such settlement activity?

FOREIGN MINISTER LIEBERMAN: ...we cannot accept – we cannot accept this vision about absolutely completely freezing call for our settlements. I think that we must keep the natural growth. Prime minister spoke about this in his speech. I think that this position, it’s – this view, this approach, it’s very clear.

SECRETARY CLINTON: ...we want to see a stop to the settlements...And in looking at the history of the Bush Administration, there were no informal or oral enforceable agreements. That has been verified by the official record of the Administration and by the personnel in the positions of responsibility...

Well, we dug into whatever we dig into and we found this picture

My captions:

1.  "So, do you think that in four years time they'll claim we didn't reach understandings with them?"

2.  "Why isn't anyone writing these minutes down?"

3.  "Do you think we should leak the full contents of our talks with some senior Democrats?  Columnists like Charles Krauthammer?"

4.  "When do I leak these conversations to Akiva Eldar?" 
     "No, that won't help.  Maybe Yoel Marcus."

Do you have any suggestions?
