The rapidly unfolding picture of the Middle East revealed by Wikileaks raises questions about Obama's Middle East policy. The cables show Saudi Arabia's king and other Arab leaders repeatedly urging the United States to attack Iran's nuclear program.
"Cut off the head of the snake," the Saudi ambassador to Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, quotes the king as saying during a meeting with General David Petraeus in April 2008."-moreWhen the secret reports were released, the first thing I thought was "Did Obama ever bother to read these cables?". The next thing I did was to draw this cartoon ...and added the punchline that if he hadn't read the cables before, he was, for sure, reading them now. It would appear that Israel and most of her Arab neighbors are now drawn together by the Iranian threat. It would also appear that Obama chooses to ignore the new situation. Your thoughts?
