The Bush administration has been attempting to present a united front to the Israelis on the issue of amendments to the roadmap. When Dov Weisglass, an aide to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, visited the White House on 14 April, the meeting was attended by Secretary of State Colin Powell, National Security Adviser Condolezza Rice, National Security Council adviser Elliott Abrams, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff I Lewis Libby and undersecretary of defense for policy Douglas Feith. Weisglas was informed that none of Israel’s proposed amendments would be made to the roadmap prior to publication.
