The Confluence of American and Jordanian Exceptionalism: An Enduring or Transactional Relationship

The confluence of shared security interests, King Abdullah IIs leadership in the region, and the countrys geographically strategic position make Jordan a vital U.S. partner in the pursuit and protection of national security interests in the Middle East region. Policymakers must ensure U.S. engagement with the Jordanian government promotes an enduring partnership rather than devolving into a merely transactional relationship. Lawmakers and military leaders must understand the dynamics of the security, economic, and social threats that jeopardize the stability of Jordan, and work to balance our liberal desires for the region with the realities of the regimes carefully controlled democratization. American policy toward the Hashemite Kingdom should acknowledge and enhance Jordanian Exceptionalism.
