In the final 48 hours before the presidential campaign transfers to the people-meter - or the vote - we ask the incumbent President Barack Obama to be held to account on behalf of the Middle East.  Did he honor his promises and pledges to a region troubled and disappointed by his predecessor's work? What’s left on his Middle East tab worth of debt, should the man enter a second term, or else should he depart, owing?
Did he keep the region secured from hostile threats - militant and nuclear?
Did he curry favor with the Arabs or Muslims  by cutting back on dodgy detentions in favor of 'clean' air assasinations?
How is his war on terror going and is he any closer to 'winning' it? Has Obama diverged from the policy of his predecessor, President George W Bush, when it comes to tactics in the war on terror or other facets of his foreign policy in the Middle East ?
He infamously promised to shut down Guantanomo facility, and did indeed get as far as signing for the 'closure' (or transfer North to the US) but, blocked at Congress, he has continued to let prisoners stew in their indefinite detentions, clocking 4 dead detainees at the camp under his watch. This and other broken promises has led some to argue that his promises aren't worth the paper they're written on.
When it comes to cooling down tensions between Iran, in one camp, the Sunni Arabs, the West and Israel in the other, Obama has only fanned flames and provoked Iran with devestating sanctions. He has not disarmed the Persian power.
Has he left the average American feeling safer abroad than during W's era? Has he guarded US national safety and garnered respect for citizens overseas?
He was left in the dark about security when his own employees were attacked at the embassy in Libya.
Did he keep his commitment to improving relations with the Arab and Muslim world , to bringing Palestine-Israel any closer to that elusive peace or to facilitating democratization of the Arab Spring countries?
The US standing shoulder to shoulder with democratic revolutions came as no surprise. But what will be problematic is maintaining that positive endorsemet. Whether in response to Tunisia's extremist chaos  or Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Obama has had to re-check his stance as pro-transitioning democracies given Islamist new orders, often hospitable to extremist elements.
By staying put in Afghanistan, he might be perservering in his bid to win the war on the Taliban terror, but he is not winning hearts and minds in the region. His administration's mixed bag of signals and standards in the Arab world are not going down well. The US during Obama's term intervened in Libya, pulled out of Iraq, squatted in Afghanistan, supported the Gulf intervention to stall Bahrain's revolution, but stayed out of Syria's bloodbath. Antagonisms within the sectarian divide of the region are rife. From Iran's point of view - the pariah state has had scientists assassinated, threats of bombings and war, sanctions that are erroding the country, anti-Iran armed groups being supported and cyber attacks. Is this vision a botched promise to the Middle East or does his delivery need a deadline extension into another presidential term? Obama's critics - including former disciples and defectors alike - say he has not honoured his pledges, especially to solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, or to mend relations with majority-Muslim nations. Just hours ahead of the polls, we take a look at Obama's Middle East tab of debts - promises undelivered or broken. Did he manage to undo Bush's unpopular Middle East legacy, and will an empowered region post Arab Spring expect more from the next president who they will hold to account?
What do you say? Has Obama done anything right by the Middle East?
