In his latest column, Foreign Affairs Managing Editor Jonathan Tepperman scrutinizes how the Obama administration deals with oppresive regimes.
Even more important than having the right policy, Tepperman argues, is choosing a policy -- and sticking to it. By trying to play both sides, the Obama administration is winning over neither. It’s left with the worst of all worlds, and both Americans and the people of Egypt, Turkey, Cambodia, Zimbabwe are paying the price.
Tepperman's column appears in the International Herald Tribune every other Saturday.
