Former director for Iran and Persian-Gulf affairs at the National Security Council, Hillary Mann Leverett talks about whether the Israel/Gaza conflict is just another Bush administration mess for Barack Obama to try to clean up.

Leverett said that the Bush administration was using “word trickery” by saying that only a permanent ceasefire was acceptable.

The former NSC official cautioned that Hillary Clinton’s State Department may have people wishing for the days of the Bush administration.
