One of the hallmarks of a presidential transition in the United States is a comprehensive policy review, aimed at determining which policies to retain and which to eliminate or change.Some U.S. policies seem destined not even to receive their day in court.In another crucial policy area, however, change by the incoming Trump administration would be welcome: the Middle East.The truth is that it was Bush who, having plunged the U.S. into war in Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2008 signed the Status of Forces Agreement that allotted three years to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraqi territory.One can only imagine the reaction of the U.S. Congress, including those who wanted to keep U.S. troops in Iraq as long as they have been in Germany or Japan, had the Obama administration agreed to Iraqi demands that U.S. troops be subject to the Iraqi judicial system.Trump and his team must now think carefully about what has happened in the Middle East, and what to do about it.Trump will not be able to avoid playing a role in the Middle East.
