About This Video

Run time: 59 minutes

Reporters milled about as they awaited the ambassador to Israel, who was to give a news conference on U.S. aid to Israel. The ambassador's previous commitment ran long, however, and the conference was delayed until a future undetermined time. Eventually, a spokesperson came out to announce the news conference had been canceled, because the ambassador had already answered questions from reporters following his meeting with Secretary of State Baker. Reporters complained about the cancellation following the announcement.
