President Barack Obama could deliver a major policy speech as early as next week laying out his new Middle East strategy following the killing of Osama bin Laden and amid ongoing upheaval in the Arab world, officials said Wednesday.
A key sticking point is whether Obama, who gained a boost in global stature with the death of the al Qaeda chief last week, will use also his coming address to present new proposals for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking, a source familiar with the administration's internal debate said.
Looking at the post-game botch job the White House communications team has done so far surrounding the bin Laden assassination and relationship with Pakistan, hopefully we won't see an apology from the President or Attorney General Eric Holder for taking action without the permission of Europe and the United Nations. Will it be round two of appeasing the Muslim world?
