Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

What will Tony Badran do after Joe Biden’s comments, slew of bad global press against Gulf support for extremists

The Mideastwire Blog

I won’t soon forget how Tony and so many on the extreme right bizarrely defend violent sunni extremists now well associated with some of our best allies in the mideast. It really is worthy of a PhD: I know they do it because they think Iran, Assad and Hizbullah are the most dangerous vis-a-vis US and Israeli interests, but when that axis manifestly takes a back seat as a direct threat to US and now Israeli interests, you would think they could take the gas off the pedal a bit and shift their focus a bit. But this kind of ideological hangup is what has long spoiled their otherwise rigorous approach.

Its too bad.
