Obama hosts anxious Gulf leaders


WASHINGTON, DC: With Iran emboldened and the United States seen in retreat, President Barack Obama faces the vexed task of restoring lost trust and influence when he hosts Gulf leaders at Camp David next week.  It is a meeting that Gulf officials privately describe as “a welcome gesture,” “thrown together” and “long overdue.” Six Gulf Cooperation Council leaders— including Saudi Arabia’s freshly crowned and hawkish King Salman—visit the White House on May 13, followed the next day by a trip to the bucolic presidential retreat near Washington.
