I wrote this  first as a senior paper in 2003, I added material to it in 2011 an submitted it to the Journal of Middle East history. It was accepted. What is interesting about this piece and the reason why it was accepted into an academic journal, is because it was one of the few pieces I have written in my career that appear to be anti-American. I am convinced that is the only reason why I have this in my CV.  It is critical of the Eisenhower administration. If I had written the same piece only supporting Eishenhower’s moves during the Suez Crisis I am sure it would have never been accepted by my academic peers. Remember that as you send your little darlings off to college. I have to chuckle a little every time I think about that.
