    Peres on "The View"

    Israeli President Shimon Peres, who is in the United States for a
    meeting with president Obama, decided to make an appearance on Barbara
    Walters talk show, "The View". Walters asked Peres about reports of
    Israel planning to bomb nuclear sites in Iran. 89-year-old Peres
    dodged her questions nimbly by saying that this was rather heavy talk
    for daytime, so naturally Barbara asked Peres about his being on
    Facebook. Peres laughed and asked the audience if they would become
    his friends. Walters was so overcome that she asked Peres for a
    farewell kiss as the segment ended, and he gave her two enthusiastic
    smooches on both cheeks.
