Some years ago posted the comment below on Thomas P.M. Barnett’s Globlogization blog.
Here is the comment:
President Obama not only not yet elected but looking doubtful as a candidate. What is interesting is that his administration to-date shows no real “grand strategy” and is slicing and dicing policy as it goes along. Oddly perhaps the Bush Grand strategy of GWOT has been pretty much ratified by Obama. Wondering why? Why does he seem to be constantly surprised? Did no new facts or themes require rethinking of the Bush policy–Specifically Egypt which did have food riots a few years ago enter into his thinking. When was the most recent NIE on Egypt? NIE= National Intelligence Estimate!
