Everything you need to know about Obama's MidEast policy speech today
The first major address Obama made about the Middle East, he did such in the Middle East -- at Cairo University. And though the speech wasn't spectacular, at excited the Arab world by going to Cairo to deliver the speech. In effect, the president was extending America's hand of help and assistance to the Middle East.
Obama's latest speech, though, was made at the State Department headquarters in DC. Why? Probably because nobody in the Middle East gave a damn; especially since it took the president so much time after January 25 to even admit that dictators/America's BFFs like Dictator Mubarak shouldn't be in power anymore. What's the saying.. "A day late and a dollar short"? Yes, yes, that's apt for the situation.
Additionally, Obama never mentioned Saudi Arabia. In a speech about Middle Eastern policy that touches upon gender equality across the region, not mentioning Saudi Arabia is basically saying "You know, don't take anything I say seriously."
It's all hot air. And everyone whose head isn't stuffed inside their rectum knows it.
