President Barack Obama delivered an important speech on the Middle East and North Africa yesterday in which he outlined how the United States will seize this historic opportunity to promote democratic reform, economic development, and peace and security across the region.  As President Obama stated in his speech, “…after decades of accepting the world as it is in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be.”
