Washington and the Arab world (Part 2)

Don't make a push for democratic change in Egypt if you can't back it up. So warns one of François Picard's panellists as guests debate the relative merits of George W Bush's Freedom Agenda, and note the contrast between the Obama administration's silence after Egypt's allegedly rigged legislative elections and its call for more free speech today.

A debate with François Picard and guests:

Former US Ambassador to Morocco Marc GINSBERG, White House advisor on Middle East under President Carter
Marina OTTAWAY , Director, Middle East Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Mona ELTAHAWY, Freelance Egyptian journalist (http://www.monaeltahawy.com/)
Douglas HERBERT, France 24 International Affairs editor
