Flynt Leverett spoke about U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and future strategies for building relations in the region. He argued for the return of a “realist” approach that would empower Middle East moderates and marginalize radicals through diplomatic means. He said the U.S. should engage Syria and Iran by re-establishing U.S.-Syria cooperation on strategic regional issues, and by pursuing a “grand bargain” with Iran. He also said that officials must articulate a more substantive vision for a solution to the Palestine question. He was joined by Mr. Clemons and Mr. Tomasky, who made introductory comments. close
