Obama May Give Speech From An Islamic Capital

In his vaunted first hundred days.

How about Detroit? Heh.

Jakarta, Cairo, Tehran, Damascus. All bad ideas.

The real question is 'what would he say?'

"The global problems generating from within the Muslim world today are so odious and so obviously self-inflicted that any honest speech on the matter would offend and enrage Muslims the world over. At the same time, because of these very problems, a softball speech about Islam’s current role in global affairs would look like cowardly capitulation. If Obama splits the difference and mixes lukewarm praise with lukewarm condemnation, the stunt will be seen rightly as meaningless."

Baghdad would seem to be the only viable option, making the nutroots collective head explode.
