I find it necessary once more to visit the claim that Middle East studies have not benefited the United States' foreign policy. I think the claim is correct, but not because these studies do not supply plenty of sound knowledge about the region, as reasoned by those who propagate the claim. The main reason is that the US government chooses, or is made to choose, the wrong advisors.
