UPDATE: Will Petraeus Give AEI the “Hardest Truth”?
A propos the growing brouhaha (see here and here) over Mark Perry’s article on foreignpolicy.com, “The Petraeus briefing: Biden’s embarrassment is not the whole story,” I was just reminded that the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) announced last November that it was presenting its highest honor, the Irving Kristol Award for 2010, to the chief of the U.S. Central Command May 6, 2010, at which time Petraeus will also be presenting the Irving Kristol Lecture. If Perry’s account is correct and, like Biden, Petraeus intends to deliver the “hardest truth” — to wit, a “realist” analysis of the Greater Middle East and the link between Israel’s behavior and Washington’s problems in the region — to the most august neo-conservative gathering of the year, it could be a very interesting, not to say awkward, evening.
