Obama and the Arab Spring.

By GEORGE FRIEDMAN, May 24, 2011, STRATFOR GLOBAL INTELLIGENCE, Geopolitical weekly.

The Stratfor Global Intelligence Company bills itself as a provider of independent, non-ideological content, that  enables users not only to better understand international events, but also to reduce risks and identify opportunities in every region of the globe.

This week George Friedman, the founder of the company writes:

U.S. President Barack Obama gave a speech last week on the Middle East. Presidents make many speeches. Some are meant to be taken casually, others are made to address an immediate crisis, and still others are intended to be a statement of broad American policy. As in any country, U.S. presidents follow rituals indicating which category their speeches fall into. Obama clearly intended his recent Middle East speech to fall into the last category, as reflecting a shift in strategy if not the declaration of a new doctrine.
