Article: Netanyahu: Ready to start peace talks

Date: July 6, 2010

This article concerned a meeting at the White House between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and United States President Barack Obama, scheduled for the following day.

Omission: It speculated "Obama is expected to pressure Netanyahu to extend Israel's 10-month moratorium on new settlement construction in the West Bank, a policy set to expire in September," but omitted mentioning the ten month moratorium was undertaken with the understanding it was a one-time moratorium, would lead to direct talks and would be reciprocated by steps taken by the Arab states.
