“A New Beginning”: That’s what President Obama called his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo back in June 2009.
Speaking at al-Azhar University, an ancient seat of Muslim scholarship, Obama called for a fresh start “based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition.
“There must be a sustained effort to listen to each other; to learn from each other; to respect one another; and to seek common ground.”
How’s that “new beginning” working out, Mr. President?
In two coordinated, planned attacks on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks Tuesday — most likely by al Qaeda — a howling, vengeful, armed Islamic mob assaulted our embassy in Cairo, ripped down and burned our flag.
