WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
Journalist Robin Wright has reported from more than 140 countries in her career. She most recently covered foreign policy for the Washington Post.
Her latest book, Dreams and Shadows: The Future of the Middle East, has just been published in paperback.
WMNF spoke with Wright yesterday, and asked her about U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clintonâ€™s announcement that two top State Department officials will travel to Damascus to hold a series of meetings with Syrian officials this week. This comes after Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has lobbied Washington to engage Syria.
We will hear more from Wright later this week.
