Administration continues to grapple with who is to lead development efforts

Josh Rogan at Foreign Policy’s The Cable blog has a post that has drawn some expansive comments with a leaked draft of a White House “Presidential Study Directive on Global Development”, calling for establishing an interagency committee to coordinate, and elevate, development policy–thus pulling this function out of the State Department.

Rogan reports ongoing tension between the National Security Council and the State Department. No clarity as to when the administration will settle on a final approach here.
