Switching signals on Hamas

The language is not exactly elegant, but the Bush adminstration seems to be coming to grips with its failure to marginalize Hamas. / In depth - US support for Egypt hints at shift on Hamas: "Asked whether the US wanted Egypt to act as an intermediary in indirect negotiations between Israel and Hamas, Ms Perino said: “The president wants their participation and their co-operation ... And I think you saw last week after secretary [of state Condoleezza] Rice’s trip, both to Egypt and to the Palestinian territories in Israel [sic], that they tried to reach out and are trying to do a little bit more with Hamas."
