Should Israel and Egypt continue to receive the lion's share of U.S. foreign assistance? With a new administration in the White House and a continuing era of profound change unfolding in the Middle East, the time may be right to reconsider U.S. foreign assistance priorities in this important region and beyond. Dr. Chris Bolan joined SSI Live host Dr. John R. Deni to discuss his perspective on how and why the United States should revamp its assistance program in the Middle East. This podcast is based on Dr. Bolan's recently published essay on the same topic. Released 17 February 2017.
