President Bush's Trip to the Middle East Part II

I thought I’d add to last week's post about President Bush's trip to the Middle East, by pointing out two new analyses.

First, the Washington Post's White House correspondent Michael Abramowitz wrote in great detail about the various steps of Bush's mideast trip.

Second, the Center for American Progress in their daily “Progress Report” published a thorough analysis of Bush's trip.

It's worth noting that President Bush did meet with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas this weekend, after critics cited Bush's “insensitivity” to the Palestinian cause.
