  • KCBS In Depth: The Black Presidency

    Farewells are being delivered by Obama Administration cabinet members with one of the strongest addresses coming from Secretary of State John Kerry about the future of the Mid-East peace process.

Reaction from Israel's Prime Minister was swift and critical, as was a Tweet from the President-Elect. But Jane McMillan’s guest on In Depth dispels much of the misinformation.
