'Of course we're still interested in the peace process'

The White House is denying that President Obama's decision to leave the 'peace process' out of a major foreign policy address means that the United states is no longer interested in the 'peace process.'
"This was a speech focused primarily on security issues," the official said. "The fact that the president wasn’t able to mention every single issue the United States is involved with doesn’t mean that the issue isn’t important."
In September, Obama referred to the Middle East peace process as one of his two greatest foreign policy priorities going into his final three years as president.
His speech on Wednesday, at the United States Military Academy in New York, was an attempt by the president to lay out a broader US foreign policy moving forward.
"We continue to believe a lasting peace is in the interest of the United States, Israel, and the Palestinians.  The door is open if the parties demonstrate a willingness to come back and address the difficult issues," the official said.
 Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.
