How America deals with the complexity of change in the Arab world is a major issue facing our next president. There are no easy answers. We need to support democratic change and accountable government because police states are inherently unstable. But we also need to work with old allies to fight immediate threats. The argument over whether the Benghazi attack was spontaneous or premeditated will be answered by the investigation that is underway. How we will deal with the complexity of the Arab Awakening should be answered by the candidates in the debates. We need serious answers, not soundbites.
