Rep. Lois Capps: Mitchell Right Choice for Middle East

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, hailed the appointment of former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, D-Maine, as a special Middle East envoy.

“I am very pleased at Sen. Mitchell’s appointment as special Middle East envoy,” Capps said in a statement. “Sen. Mitchell’s record on conflict resolution is beyond reproach and will help re-establish the United States as a force for peace in the Middle East.

“I believe this appointment shows clearly that President Obama understands the importance of addressing the difficult, but resolvable, problem of achieving peace between Israelis and Palestinians. It also underscores his commitment to making progress on this critical issue.

“Achieving peace in the Middle East is not only in the best interests of our great ally, Israel, and of the long-suffering Palestinian people, it is extremely important to America’s national security and so we must achieve this goal. I look forward to working with Sen. Mitchell as he begins this new task.”

— Emily Kryder is press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
