We Need Direct Talks With al-Zawahri, Mr. President-Elect?
By John W. Lillpop
This time, Islamofascists have just gone too far. It was bad enough when Al-Quaeda knocked down the Twin Towers and crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.
But Osama bin Laden's right hand terrorist, Ayman al Zawahiri, went over the edge with a racially insensitive assault on President-elect Barack Obama in which al-Zawahri called the president-elect a "house Negro," along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. *
House Negro? Good heavens, that level of toxic vitriol has not been used since the last Republican fund raising campaign letter was issued in October.
Before that, one must go all the way back to March, 2008, and Bill Clinton's "fairy tale" assault on Obama's manhood and political viability prior to the South Carolina primary.
Just whom the Hades does this al-Zawahri character think he is?
Still, liberals will see the al-Zawahri affront as a perfect opporunity to reinstate "talking" as a major weapon in the American arsenal against terrorism.
Whereas George W. Bush would sent in the U.S. Marines and a few "nuklear" bombers to give al-Zawahri a much needed attitude adjustment, President-elect Obama will most likely invite the excitable Egyptian to a summit at Camp David where the issues can be discussed calmly and sanely.
With no pre-conditions, of course.
Better still, being the shrewd politician that he is, Obama may elect to send his new Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to Pakistan to meet face-to-face with the brutal terrorist.
Same rules, no pre-conditions,
Hillary would be perfect for the assignment because of her vast experience in bobbing and weaving around enemy sniper fire. Her selfless courage and willingness to pay whatever price necessary to help America could pay huge dividends.
And should an unforeseeable calamity should befall HRC in some God-forsaken cave in remote Pakistan, President-elect Obama would then be free to find another Secretary of State, one without grand designs on the Oval Office!
That would be, how you say, a Win-win, Mr. Obama?
