Subject: Bush lectures Arab world on political reform, women's rights
On departing the Middle East, Bush unloads his blunderbuss on the Arab World. It was hardly a contribution to peace in the Middle East.
QUOTED EXCERPT: Bush arrived back in Washington late Sunday with little to show for the trip. Saudi Arabia rebuffed his plea for help with soaring oil prices, Egypt's leader questioned his seriousness about peacemaking and there was not enough progress in the peace talks to warrant a three-way meeting of Bush with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
