A kinder assessment than I would render

Fouad Ajami, who's a fairly astute Middle East scholar, writes a fairly generous asessement of the Bush 43 Administration insofar as its relations with the Middle East are concerned: http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110011098.

I think that Ajami is a little off in his assessment. Though I agree with his evaluation of the Surge and its effect on Iraq, he seems a little overly generous in his comments on the current state of U.S.-Israeli relations, which despite the impending visit of the President to Israel are at their poorest state since the Bush 41 Administration.
