Watch: Psaki Gets Defensive When Asked About Indyk's Rant


State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki got defensive on Monday after being confronted with the comments attributed to Martin Indyk, the American negotiator in the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), in which he went on a rant blaming the Jewish state for the failure of peace talks.

The conversation was originally reported by The Washington Free Beacon, which received it from a person who overheard the conversation between Indyk, his wife Gahl Burt, and several members of his staff.
