In this article, A.A. Fatouros places the U.S. aid-embargo to Turkey in the context of jurisdiction (executive vs. legislative powers) rather than in the context of ideological differences between the two camps. If, as the writer claims, the final concessions to the executive branch by Congress had been predictable, could we conclude that the executive branch is on the road to recovery? And if that is the case, is the Congressional ratification of the recent agreement between Kissinger and Turkey a foregone conclusion? There is of course such a possibility. To avert it, the opponents of the aid and the "Greek lobby" may have to adopt new strategies and tactics.
