Obama's Ambassador to the Muslim World Gets a Lecture

Interesting story here about President Obama's Minister Plenipotentiary to the Caliphate (whoops, Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Countries) getting lectured on America's sins before the Islamic world while on a trip to India.  How's the outreach effort working out for you, Barack?  You and your toadies can kvetch all you want about listening to their rage being a necessary first step to understanding--but I'm here to tell you that there is a powerful narrative of victimization at work that we simply must dispute at every step.  We should never shrink from recounting to Muslims what the US has done to make the lives of countless Muslims better.  The President's Envoy did a reasonable job in response to the Indian tirade--perhaps it will put a little more starch in his collar for the future.

Wait a minute, it's not supposed to work that way. We come with open arms and bent waists. We even apologize for our country. Your anger should evaporate and you should embrace us.

Could we have elected a more naive Administration?
