Obama's Mideast Envoy George Mitchell Resigning

May 13, 2011

George Mitchell, the White House's special envoy to the Middle East, will resign on Friday, National Journal has learned.

Mitchell, whom President Obama appointed to steer the peace process in the Mideast two years ago, is stepping down for personal reasons, the Associated Press's sources say.

The former Democratic senator from Maine helped broker a peace agreement in Northern Ireland and was a key figure in an investigation into Major League Baseball and the use of steroids, but his efforts in Israel and the Palestinian territories for Obama have not met with success.

 

The president is expected to give a major foreign policy speech next week on the region.
