That is the best forign policy statement I have read from Obama ever!!!!



Was it childish to react to adem-a-jihad, yes it was.

Was it true, yes.
Was it funny, yes.
Was it needed, well, yes.
Was it done to put the Irqanian pres in his place, yes.

Ok, yes, if it is not perfectly clear, I see this as totaly unimportant.

Just political back and forthing, but 2 points for Obama.
