America, Africa and other

Like Secretary of State
George Shultz, he will be sen-
sitive to the economic aspects
of foreign policy
decision-making.
But Baker, who does not
have much foreign policy ex-
perience per se, will be very
dependent on the career
specialists at the State
Department. The decision to
name Thomas Pickering, the
Ambassador to Israel, to
become the United Nations
envoy underlines this trend.
Pickering, an experienced
and talented foreign service
officer, will report to Baker;
he has no pretensions of being
an "equal."
The new Secretary of De-
fense, former Texas Senator
John Tower, is also a politi-
cian from the moderate wing
of the Republican Party.
Familiar with defense issues,
he has served on the Senate
Armed Services Committee
for many years. After leaving
the Senate, he was a highly-
paid consultant to several
private defense firms.
As far as Israel is con-
cerned, his record is mixed.
He did not always vote the
way Israel and its friends in
Washington wanted. He
strongly supported the 1981
Saudi AWACS package sale.
He was also in favor of other
U.S. arms sales to Arab
countries.
What is almost certain is
that the Bush administra-
tion, very early into its term,
will move to push through
new arms sales to Saudi
Arabia and other moderate
Arab states.
The candid statements by
outgoing Defense Secretary
Frank Carlucci — delivered
during the waning days of the
presidential campaign —
about the need for U.S. arms
sales to Arab countries
despite the opposition of
Israel and its supporters in
Washington will be Tower's
stance as well.
Carlucci complained public-
ly about the pro-Israeli lobby.
But Tower sees Israel as a
strategic asset. The enhanced
military relationship between
the United States and Israel
has been institutionalized in
recent years. Bush and Thwer
support the relationship and
it should continue over the
next four years.
The new National Security
Adviser, Brent Scowcroft, also
is a pragmatic foreign policy
expert. A former deputy to
