Obama Leery Of Intervention In Mideast

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - From Egypt to Syria to Iraq and beyond, the Obama administration is determined to show it will only go so far to help save nations in chaos from themselves.
    
President Barack Obama has long made it clear that he favors a foreign policy of consultation and negotiation, but not intervention.
    
U.S. officials say the Obama administration has delivered pointed warnings to key players in the latest crisis to grip Egypt as hundreds of thousands of protesters demanded President Mohammed Morsi's ouster.
    
The officials say the administration stopped short of demanding that Morsi take specific steps and instead offered strong suggestions, backed by billions of dollars in U.S. aid, to ease the tensions. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss publicly diplomatic matters.
