The New Middle East
The Carnegie Endowment has released a major new report on the Middle East with policy recommendations that -- surprise! -- are basically 180 degrees out from the current course charted by the Bush Administration. No kidding, this report suggest a more or less complete U-Turn on U.S. Policy toward Israel and Palestine; Syria and Lebanon; Iraq; Iran; and the Democracy Agenda.
Abu Muqawama seriously doubts anyone working for the Bush Administration is going to read this, but do you know who might? The folks working for that Kenyan feller with the funny name. And we're pretty sure that's why the Carnegie Endowment decided to release their report around about the time the nominations were wrapped up...
