In case you missed it, there is an amazing column from Youssef Ibrahim in the NY Sun that lays out what is wrong with the feckless pretenses at public diplomacy from Karen Hughes and Condoleezza Rice, and what we should be doing: calling out the Muslim tyrants and presenting the Muslim world with a definition of what constitutes a proper, civilized approach to Islam. I’ve been very critical of Ibrahim for years, but this is a pleasure to read and a delight to circulate. Bravo.
One fine day–if you believe in miracles–this administration will get on with the business of explaining itself in simple English. Maybe they need Tony Snow in the White House.
