New Republic;05/14/2001, Vol. 224 Issue 20, p23
Focuses on the issue of rebuke of Israel by U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell after Israeli forces occupied an area of the Gaza Strip. Information that President George W. Bush's decision not to micromanage the peace process has resulted in the outsourcing of Middle East policy to Powell; Claim that Powell's rebuke offers a preview of further U.S. pressure, notwithstanding the administration's past insistence that it had no use for a special envoy to the peace talks; Statement that Bush's foreign policy inclinations have proved more sound than the advice of his diplomatic counselors.
