This article focuses on the United States' foreign policy for the Middle East. Seeking to establish the details of a new Middle East policy, Secretary John Foster Dulles, together with Mutual Security Director Harold E. Stassen, will visit 12 countries in 20 days. The pace is not too important because the basic thinking for the new policy was done long before Dulles embarked. It was done by a man who died in 1949-- James Forrestal, first U.S. Secretary of Defense. Constantly emphasizing the "overriding importance of access to Middle East oil reserves," Forrestal insisted throughout a period of intense domestic demand for U.S. support of an independent Jewish State in Palestine that it would be "stupid" to allow the situation to develop so as to do "permanent injury to the United States' relations with the Moslem world."
