Kerry's failed peace process

The current TNR has a phenomenal account of how and why John Kerry's peace process failed. Its a great read, rather long, full of detail, and impeccably sourced. Memorable quote: 
After the meeting, the Palestinian negotiator saw Susan Rice—Abbas’s favorite member of the Obama administration—in the hall. “Susan,” he said, “I see we’ve yet to succeed in making it clear to you that we Palestinians aren’t stupid.” Rice couldn’t believe it. “You Palestinians,” she told him, “can never see the f** big picture.”
