On Thursday morning, President Barack Obama brought out the Hussein in him by speaking to the Muslim world directly in Cairo, Egypt. Many in the US were either just waking up or didn’t know of the speech even taking place. It was truly remarkable with him admitting to the US’s wrongs as done under previous Administrations.
He even admitted that Iraq was a mistake. CNN reported on the Afghan reaction to the speech. “The people couldn’t believe what they were hearing,” said one reporter. He also called for no more Israeli settlements and used the wording of “Palestine” instead of the usual rhetoric of “Palestinian state” when referring to the land that has been in conflict since James Brown was sober. He also admitted proudly and loudly that he is a Christian.
This is what I would call one of Obama”s most powerful and game changing speeches ever.
