I thought it more than just a little interesting that his first TV interview would be to Al Arubiya TV … especially since the US economy is in free fall here (or is it?).
Even more interesting is this portion of the interview. He sends a message to Americans not to fear Muslims, then after admitting American mistakes (that didn’t sit well with me), he acknowledges his Muslim roots.
Turns out, Al-Arubiya Correspondent Hisham Melhem tells Wolf that portion of the interview is perhaps the most important.
I know what he was getting at here … but weren’t we told not to mention his Muslim roots and his middle name? Just asking, that’s all.
