"Power without Influence: The Bush Administrationís Foreign Policy Failure in the Middle East"

Journal Article, International Security, issue 4, volume 33

By Jeremy Pressman, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2002-2003

The George W. Bush administration's efforts in the Middle East failed to advance U.S. national security. The Bush administration did not defeat terrorism, promote democracy in the region, or stop nonconventional proliferation. It was unsuccessful because it relied too heavily on military force, showed an unwillingness to learn and adapt, and did not resolve long-standing policy contradictions. Given the Bush administration's failure in the Middle East, scholars should examine why material power does not automatically translate into international influence.
