The New York Times now says the administration’s policies are ‘scrambled’ in the Middle East. Even the precious Middle East Peace Process has been deep-sixed by leaks. Ironic, coming from a paper which made arrangements with Julian Assange and the Guardian, to publish classified material. With Tunisia in turmoil, Lebanon now on the brink of a Hezbollah government and now riots in Egypt, US policy is not only ‘scrambled’ but in the air. By choosing not be the Strong Horse and backing whatever despot would treat with it, the US may have backed the Wrong Horse.
