EXCERPT:

TODD: “You know, Peter, this deal is a bit uncomfortable for a lot of observers to watch because it seems so transactional, it’s as if pulling out of the Iran deal is what got these Gulf states on board to do this, you know, to then recognize it. It feels like there is a lot of quid pro quos involved in this, that it isn’t something larger than that. Then again, sometimes Middle East diplomacy, the only way to make things move is through the transactional nature of the region.”
