Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will dispatch digital experts to the region to work with community groups on blogging, texting and building websites in the Mideast and North Africa.

WASHINGTON – Blog your way to democracy, Secretary of State Clinton suggested to Arab leaders on Tuesday.

At a “Forum for the Future” in Morocco, Clinton said “our goal is to listen, learn, and discover new ways that we can work as partners for the good of the people that we represent.”

With $5 million in seed money, Clinton said the U.S. will dispatch digital experts to the region to work with community groups on blogging, texting and building websites in the Mideast and North Africa.

The initiative is focused on “listening and embracing others’ ideas rather than simply imposing our own,” Clinton said in a statement.

The proposal had overtones of Obama’s community organizing roots but also harkened back to the “listening tour” that kicked off Clinton’s successful 2000 Senate campaign.

U.S. officials said Clinton’s announcement was intended as a follow-up to the “New Beginning” in the Mideast and North Africa that Obama launched in his June 4 speech to the Muslim world in Cairo.

They also brushed off criticism that the program would duplicate social work better done by non-governmental agencies.

Clinton’s goal was to promote democracy, a U.S. official said, and “isn’t that the essential problem in the Arab world?”

Critics of Clinton and the Obama administration agreed the high-tech program was worth attempting, after they pointed out that the Forum for the Future was a project started by former President George W. Bush.

Elliott Abrams, a deputy national security adviser under Bush, said that “especially in dictatorships, which abound in the region, this kind of project can help overcome censorship and state control of the media, and it’s a very good idea.”

After the meetings in Morocco, which centered on Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Clinton canceled her flight home to go to Cairo for talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Clinton was expected to seek help from Mubarak in calming Arab fears the U.S. is easing pressure on Israel to stop new settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said Mubarak asked for the meeting to discuss Clinton’s failed attempts to jump-start negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Abul Gheit noted that the peace process was “now passing into a critical stage,” the official MENA news agency said.

    This actually sounds like a good idea on its surface.

    But think about it, like everything else, I’m sure they expect a R.O.I. – and “Dumbocracy” is a sad excuse for a cover story.

    It’s probably a way to give a few friends a few $million, and an intel op to see who they can frame-up and waterboard and use as an excuse to drone-bomb some people and ‘save them from themselves’. … Stay tuned.

    P.S. Oh yeah, I know $5 mil. is just a drop in the bucket, but it could go a long way here in Detroit for, oh I don’t know, youth sports, vocational training, abandoned building demoition, public transportation, soup kitchens, an urban garden…
