A Few Things to Read

Here are a few things that I believe many people should read. Since I will be gone most of the day, I just wanted to leave you all with some interesting information.


The website describes this as follows:

George W. Bush has taken office at a perilous moment in the Middle East. Arab–Israeli relations are in crisis, regional radicals are buoyant, and the popular mood in much of the Arab world is critical of U.S. policy. Overall, the U.S. strategic situation in the area is characterized more by challenges than by opportunities. This Presidential Study Group report — the fourth such quadrennial exercise undertaken under the auspices of The Washington Institute — offers a set of ideas and recommendations to the president to address these worrisome circumstances.

Presidential Study Group — a bipartisan, blue-ribbon commission of statesmen, diplomats, legislators, scholars, and experts — was convened throughout Spring 2000 to examine the state of the Middle East and the effectiveness of U.S. policy in advancing U.S. interests in that important region.
