"America's Strategy for the New Middle East" - Michael Singh briefs MEP's and official
TAI co-hosted in the European Parliament a talk on "America's Strategy for the New Middle East":
Led by France and the UK, the EU has driven the international efforts in response to the troubling situation in Lybia - a leadership role that, in the past, would likely have been filled by the United States. Indeed, in Lybia, as in the cases throughout North Africa and the Persian Gulf, the American government has taken a prominent position, leading many commentators to question what the U.S. strategy for the region is.
Michael Singh, Managing Director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, provided insight into the U.S.'s strategy for the changing Middle East and what role he expects America to play as the situation continues to unfold.
