I have been asked to talk today on the situation in the Mediterranean and Middle East-and what I shall give you is pretty much of a reporter's story. I have recently been there and have seen a good many of our military, naval, and diplomatic people- and many local personalities as well. I'll give you as objective a survey of the existing situation as I can.
