In the Boston Globe yesterday, Farah Stockman focused on prospects for Middle East democracy promotion under President Obama. She quoted POMED’s Andrew Albertson, who in addition to foreshadowing some elements of Obama’s speech in Cairo today, has emphasized the administration’s hands-off approach to democracy promotion so far. “This administration has been very quiet so far. It’s hard to have this money go out the door without pairing it with public support and private diplomacy. I believe that the administration does need to put a stake in the ground and say, ‘We care about democracy.’”
