Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea. What happens next? Now that at two American crews have been attacked by pirates off the Horn of Africa, it has become the focus of attention. What is the proper role of America in establishing stability and security in that area of the world? What should we expect to happen? Who are the players, and what, if any, difference does Obama make?
At Cobb we've had special focus on that area surrounding the work and positions of Jendayi Frazer. I think that if Obama continues the general thrust of the Bush Administration via Frazer, that we're on the right track, but that he must step up his commitment to crackdown on piracy. There's a lot to discuss. Let's get it under way.
