A critique of US policy in the Middle East

Korbel Professor Rob Prince has a new post up on his blog that I want to pass along to everyone.  He examines the history of United States policy in the Middle East, taking the general stance that our actions do not match our propoganda, and we are now seeing the results of that practice.  He also does a good job of laying out the United States interests in Egypt.

Right now, without much of a roadmap, the main U.S. goals  is to buy time to insure damage control, to slow the processes of change everywhere in the region, hoping to minimize the damage to U.S. strategic interests (meaning specifically its control of the region’s energy resources).
