U.S. - Middle East
NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports that the role of the United States in Israel's withdrawal from Gaza reflects a different approach to the Middle East from that of the Clinton administration. President Clinton tackled regional issues always in the context of the peace process. The Bush administration feels compelled to make the U.S. position known on various developments. But those reactions seem to be dictated by events themselves rather than the larger goal of reaching a peace agreement.
