Hudson to Host Conference on 'The Obama Administration's Middle East Policy: Is the Strong Horse Losing Its Lead?'

Hudson Institute

WASHINGTON, January 14 — For over half a century, the United States has established itself as the Middle East’s dominant “strong horse.” Yet, with war raging in Afghanistan and Iraq — and the possibility of conflict with the Islamic Republic of Iran — does America have the resolve and the resources to maintain its status?

Hudson Visiting Fellow Lee Smith will discuss his new book, The Strong Horse: Power, Politics, and the Clash of Arab Civilizations (Doubleday). Jeffrey Feltman, Assistant Secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, and Elliott Abrams, former Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Global Democracy Strategy in the Bush administration, will offer commentary. Hudson Institute CEO Kenneth Weinstein will introduce and moderate the event.

When:
Tuesday, January 19, 2010, 12:00 – 2:00 PM

Jeffrey Feltman, Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs
