Obama: US Must Speak With Single Voice On Gaza

WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama says he is concerned about the violence in Gaza, but also is wary of sending
conflicting messages about American foreign policy.

At a news conference Wednesday to announce additional transition
moves, Obama was asked why he hadn't said more publicly about the
continuing siege of violence in the Mideast.

He replied by repeating earlier statements that the United States can have only one president at a time.

Obama told reporters that "We can't have two administrations running foreign policy at the same time. We simply can't do it."

But he also said his relative silence is not a result of "a lack of concern" about the fighting there.
