Watching Bush's Visit Through the Arab Media

Shibley Telhami, the Anwar Sadat professor for peace and development at the University of Maryland, discusses how President Bush's visit to the Gulf states is playing out in the Arab media.

When it comes to Iran, Telhami tells Andrea Seabrook, "In many ways, when I read the president's words in the United Arab Emirates, I would have to believe that much of this is intended to address our own public, to project that the Gulf is on our side of this issue, and to make a case for our public, rather than for the Arab public."
