A nation must think before it acts.
With the current administration’s attention, resources and reputation so tied to Iraq, the prospect for significant changes in American foreign policy are limited in George W. Bush’s remaining months in office. A new administration coming into power in January 2009, however, gives the United States a chance to revisit the changes to American foreign policy implemented after 9/11, as well as to consider any needed course corrections. The opportunity such changes in administration offers is a major strength of the American political system. Clearly, now is the time to start thinking about such issues.
