Build on Bush’s Middle East Progress

Journalism Professor Robert Zelnick, former ABC News correspondent, a Hoover Institute fellow, and author of “Israeli Unilateralism: Beyond Gaza,” says Obama should build on Bush’s Middle East progress.  With Secretary of State Clinton in the region, Zelnick suggests in the Christian Science Monitor how this can be done.

“If (U.S. special envoys George Mitchell and Dennis Ross) can learn from Bush’s mistake and embrace the positive aspects that came from his administrration, they could save themselves many redundant steps on the road to peace.  If full-dress negotiations do produce accord, the key would then be ‘shelving’ agreement until the Palestinian Authority reestablishes sufficient control to implement it.”
