Rice Calls For International Probe of Israel Flotilla Incident
WASHINGTON -- U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice says there should be international participation in Israel's investigation into its raid of a Turkish ship trying to run the Israeli blockade of Gaza.
Rice says the U.S. believes Israel can conduct a "credible and impartial" investigation, but that an "international component" would make it more credible in the eyes of the international community.
In a taped interview airing on "Fox News Sunday," Rice also rejects reports that Afghan President Hamid Karzai wants to make a deal with the Taliban because he no longer believes the U.S. can win the war.
