Photos from President Barack Obama’s three-day trip to Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan. While in the Middle East Obama met with several of the regions leaders including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli President Shimon Peres, President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, Jordan’s King Abdullah II and give an address to Israeli youth in Jerusalem. The trip however is unlikely to jumpstart the stalled Arab-Israeli Peace Process.

The US will be energy independent by 2025 if projections continue. A national policy could bring that date up by years.

It is not our responsibility to modernize or democratize that region. If we wish to play the imperial game, we shouldn't complain when we are hit with ruinous expenditures and domestic attacks.
