Obama Gets It Right

The president recently traveled to Cairo to address the United States' relationship with the Islamic world.  I must say I think Mr. Obama's speech was outstanding.  His address followed a careful strategy.  It was inclusive to Muslims, pointed out that the main target of Islamic terrorists have been other Muslims, and he even quoted the Koran to drive his point of peace between the West and the Middle East home.  But, he also was strong in his defense of the war in Afghanistan and the right of the United States to defend itself.  He struck a careful balance, hopefully folks on both sides were listening.
