If there was ever a dire need for diplomacy, this week would top the list. The shut-out of Natanyaheu, the whole 9/11 thing, the unbelievable assaults on two US embassies, the Carteresque helplessness of the leader of the free world … but wait! Turns out he’s not just standing by letting world events swirl around him!
Breathe easy, America. Our president is also the best foreign diplomat ever. After yesterday’s embassy attacks in Egypt and Libya*, he reached out to
our his Arab brothers just to be sure their religious feelings weren’t still hurt. And he did it by using the universally accepted gesture of peace-making: breaking bread. A platter of fresh pita was delivered late last night to be sure the right message was sent. No hard feelings, right guys?
* unclear if this was before or after the deaths of 4 americans** was announced.
** the grounds of a U.S. Embassy in a foreign country is U.S. soil, is it not? So, act of war?
