    ROGERS: "Well, I'm a little cautious about saying whether we're encouraged or not because sometimes when it is played back on the media it gets a little distorted. Yes, there are some slight nuances that give us some encouragement. But I don't want to hold out too much hope. We are still encouraged by the fact that there is a feeling...I think throughout the world....that the way that the war should end is by the negotiating process. And there is a great deal of diplomatic support for the efforts the President has made. In the discussions that I've had with many leaders of the world -- and I don't want to single out any by name -- but almost without exception they fool that the proposals that we have made are proposals that are fair and reasonable and should provide a basis for a negotiated settlement".
