ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S.' diplomatic role in the Middle East. The article talks about U.S. President George W. Bush's push for democratic freedom in the region. Some political experts claim Bush used democratic freedom as an excuse when the war in Iraq turned out to be more difficult and deadly to explain. Analysts say Bush linked Middle Eastern freedom with U.S. security from terrorism.
