Arab Network Lands Obama

Somewhere, Rush Limbaugh is going apoplectic: Barack Obama granted his first official presidential interview last night to an Arabic-language station. Obama told the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya that "Now, my job is to communicate the fact that the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world, that the language we use has to be a language of respect. I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries." He went on to criticize phrases like "war on terror." "The language we use matters," he said. "We cannot paint with a broad brush a faith as a consequence of the violence that is done in that faith's name."
