This week Pakistan, last week Iran, every week Iraq, Israel, Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority: the Middle East remains a chief concern of U.S. foreign policy. Stephen Rosen and Martin Kramer, both professors affiliated with Harvard’s Olin Institute for Strategic Studies, have put together a great new ‘expert’ blog in which academics and policy specialists discuss both events and long-term trends and strategy in the Middle East. It may be worth taking a look and bookmarking. Here.
(Full disclosure: Both Rosen and Kramer are senior advisers with the Giuliani campaign in which I’m a peon. MESH has nothing to do with the campaign, though, or any partisan position; it includes professors and policymakers approaching issues from a wide-range of views and with a wide-range of backgrounds).
