So far, Obama's policies in the Middle East have been utter failures: 1. Peace talks between Israel and Palestine? Obama could not PRESSURE Netanyahu to stop settlement construction for THREE months only! He tried to bribe Netanyahu into it. Obama does not understand how to work with refuseniks of peace. Better to learn from Jim Baker./ 2. Obama LOST Lebanon to Hizballah. He advised Saad Hariri to insist on the International court when the latter inclined to give it up. The rest is history./ 3. Obama got into bombing Libya. Now he will have little excuse not to bomb Assad and eventually Saudi Arabia./ Obama is inept in foreign policy, and his foreign policy team, led by Hillary and Biden, is a joke.
