‘Left, Right & Center’: Palestine, Rice and the Fiscal Cliff

The United Nations General Assembly voted overwhelmingly—and over the vociferous objections of the U.S. and Israel—to elevate the status of Palestine to “nonmember observer state.” Will this shift the balance of power in the Middle East?

Those are the questions lurking behind the endless stream of headlines about “Benghazi-gate.” But the question we should really ask is: How did a tragic but isolated incident at a U.S. consulate, in a place few Americans had ever heard of, get blown up into a pivotal issue in a too-close-to-call presidential contest?
