This article is what I, and many other people were looking for from Obama. Imagine, a leader saying that the future is important! It is a relief to hear that he thinks that people in the middle east are important. Honestly, I think that W probably thought so to, but he never actually said it. That’s a big deal. There are plenty of people over here (believe it or not) that don’t think that W is a monster, so they are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, not so over in the middle east.
Anyway, a televised interview on an Arabic station is a huge first step, let’s hope he’ll continue the healing process.
