Much has been said about the speech President Obama has given today in Cairo directed toward the Muslim world at large. Amazingly enough how now is the time that Obama has deemed it permissible to use talk about his early life living in Muslim countries... while only a few months ago - it would have been racist or Islamiphobic to mention such things.
Robert Spencer has done a nice job analyzing said speech. I recommend taking a look at his analysis.
Daniel Pipes also has a good piece as well. Make sure to follow the links within the article.
Being willfully ignorant and clueless when you are a "Joe" on the street isn't a huge deal... but to be ignorant and clueless as the President of the United States - is dangerous for us all.
