How Obama Stays Popular Among Muslims
Posted by Dave Blount at August 29, 2010 12:36 PM
Barack Hussein Obama has managed to maintain his popularity among one group — Muslims:
While President Barack Obama's overall approval rating averaged 48 percent for the first seven months of 2010, it was 78 percent among Muslim Americans, according to the Gallup Poll. That gave the president a higher approval rating among Muslims than among any other religious category reported by the poll.
This might help explain why:
The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.
The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.
In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that "no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future."
Given Obama's obvious sympathies, it would be absurd to expect effective execution of the War on Terror — I mean, the Overseas Contingency Operation Against Causers Of Manmade Disasters Whom It Would Be Islamophobic to Associate With Islam.
Imagine if we had elected a pro-Hitler president in the middle of WWII. Severely disoriented by a leftist media devoted to its destruction, America went insane in 2008. It's coming back to its senses just in time. Liberals won't like what happens next.
