Strange Alliances: 'Those Tricky Arabs'Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Related: Although some conservatives have been fretting that Lebanese rocket fire and Israeli warplanes are making President Bush look helpless, administration officials revealed to TIME today that they have plans to harness the chaos as a "leadership moment" for Bush that could wind up helping his flagging goal of transforming the Middle East.
These officials said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will leave Sunday night for a week of diplomacy in the region and will go with the modest goal of forming an "umbrella of Arab allies" in opposition to the militant group Hizballah (add Iran and Syria to the list) that incited the conflagration by kidnapping two Israeli soldiers.
