The Strauss Center's Will Inboden discussed the Obama Administrations use of timing in his contribution to the Foreign Policy blog Shadow Government last week. "In foreign policy it is not just what you do, but when you do it.

Inboden claims that somewhere between President Obama’s campaign and his presidency, he lost his sense of political timing.

This is apparent in the U.S.’s recent recognition of the Transitional National Council as the legitimate government in Libya, something that Inboden says should have been done four months ago.
