Apologies for the radio silence over the past week. I was in New Orleans attending the annual conference of the American Comparative Literature Association, and the lure of great music, great seafood, and great company proved more irresistible than Lebanese politics.
Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs and former U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman, will be giving a talk at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs tomorrow evening. I plan to attend and, given the opportunity, I will ask him one question on behalf of a reader of this blog.
So let’s hear it. What should I ask Mr. Feltman? I’ll select what I think is the best question and then report back with his response.
Update: I did indeed attend the Feltman talk, but apparently all of the talks in this Middle East Initiative series are off-the-record, so I won’t be able to report back on what he had to say. Sorry guys.
- An excellent, thoughtful review of Lee Smith’s book by Andrew Exum.
