We, the American People, await your comment regarding the domestic targeting of those who have volunteered to serve under you. You saw fit to comment about the murder of the late-term abortion doctor, George Tiller and that was well and good. Of course, the president of the United States should discourage the...ahem...lawless resolution of issues using violence.
It would also be well and good, however, if you were to comment on the murder of Private William Long and the injury of Private Quinton Ezeagwula--both were contained in a single act of terror perpetrated on American soil by the Islamist and avowed foe of the U.S. Military, Carlos Bledsoe aka Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammed. Bledsoe/Muhammed considers the two young soldiers his enemies. And you are the leader of those soldiers.
One of your favorite verbal crutches is the phrase "let's be clear." Okay. It would be clarifying to know where your priorities lie.
UPDATE: Well I guess we know why President Obama decided to forgo commenting on the murder of one of his subordinates by an Islamist. It would have made for awkward dinner conversation in his present countries of destination.
The United States should not impose its values on other countries, but those same countries should embrace "universal" values like democracy and freedom of speech, President Obama said in an interview as he prepared to travel to the Middle East.
The president, who leaves Tuesday night for Saudi Arabia, said he will encourage those principles while abroad this week. He will deliver a speech at the University of Cairo in Egypt on Thursday, and then head to Europe.
