US Presidents and the Middle East: Teddy Roosevelt and the Perdicaris Affair, 1904

This two-year old post always gets a little extra interest around President’s Day, and while I’m still technically out of the usual blogging routine until tomorrow, I figured I could re-blog this so people could find it more easily. It’s obviously relevant to the holiday, but there’s also some historical context around the often repeated but only infrequently applied standard that America never negotiates with terrorists. Enjoy!
