The White House blasted the U.N. General Assembly vote ordering Israel to dismantle its West Bank security barrier. In a briefing Wednesday, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the U.N. resolution was “one-sided,” adding that the White House believes the parties should focus instead on the “road map” peace plan. “We believe the way to resolve the situation in the Middle East is through a political solution,” he said.
