US denies it will assign blame in proximity talks... sort of...

On Saturday night, I blogged a story that said that the US had promised it would assign blame if the 'proximity talks' between Israel and the 'Palestinians' failed. Politico's Laura Rozen reports that the State Department is denying that story. Sort of.
U.S. officials denied regional media reports that the U.S. has provided written guarantees to the parties that the U.S. will assign blame if the talks run into obstacles, but suggested oral assurances may have been given that the Palestinians wrote down which served as the basis for such claims.
In other words, the story is true; the assurances just weren't written.

What could go wrong?
