Mearsheimer: US Weak in Role as Mediator

September 28, 2010

As US-mediated Mideast peace talks stumble forward, University of Chicago Professor John Mearsheimer suggested yesterday at Brown that the Obama administration is essentially impotent in its role, according to a report in the Brown Daily Herald.

The talk was sponsored by Common Ground: Justice and Equality in Palestine/Israel, the Brown Journal of World Affairs, the Office of International Affairs, and the Watson Institute.
