Beware Partisan Punditry on the Middle East
Syria is in revolt. Negotiations with Iran are complicated. Egypt's political future is up for grabs. The United States has a significant stake in the outcome of these Middle Eastern challenges.
Yet unfortunately, these dynamic changes are happening at precisely the least serious time of our national conversation -- the presidential campaign season.
So while the American people deserve to have a debate about the future of the Middle East, pundits and partisans are obscuring the hard choices our country faces in favor of political posturing.
