Patrick Seale described Bush foreign policy as uncertain
Regional-USA, Politics, 12/18/2004
British writer and journalist Patrick Seale said that uncertainty was still marking President George W. Bush's foreign policy in his second term due to the continued disagreements between the so-called neo-conservatives and traditional conservatives in his administration over key portfolios at the Department Of State, National Security Council and the CIA.
In a lead comment published in the London-based Arabic-speaking Al-Hayat daily newspaper Friday, Seale wondered whether President Bush was going to heed calls by several officials, particularly from European politicians, to revive the deadlocked Middle East peace process.
Seale pointed out that Bush spoke explicitly about his wishes to see a Palestinian state over the next few years but ignored calls for appointing a special envoy entrusted with strong presidential support to advance the peace process ahead.
On Iraq, the British journalist suggested the deteriorated situation could drag on even after the Jan. 30 general elections scheduled, saying nobody could predict what the situation there would be like following that date.
