Obama’s tired of the Middle East — but is that a policy?

A New York Times report on a major reappraisal of President Obama’s approach to the Middle East tosses this sentence in close to the end:
After vigorous debate, the group decided to make the Middle East peace process a top priority — even after failing to broker an agreement during the administration’s first term — in part because Mr. Kerry had already thrown himself into the role of peacemaker.

  1. Tired of bombing Yemen? He can always stop.
    Tired of meeting Netanyahu and grovelling to him? Understandable.
    What else has he done in connection with the Middle East? Oh yes, a trip to Egypt and a speech that was ghost-written by Hans Christian Andersen.
    Not much of a record really.
