Dear President Obama, your second term is over, you will be gone in a few weeks so I thought I needed to share my thoughts and feelings about your tenure before you go, please forgive any slights you find in this article.
During your first election in 2008, I was an Elector, one of the first Muslim Electors in the country. I was looking forward to the promise of Hope and Change which, after King George the Worst, could only get better.
I like what you did with the so-called “Obama Care”. Of course it does not go as far as it should in any self-respecting developed country, but I understand the limitations you had, facing an opportunistic and spineless Congress that caters more to their paymasters than they do to the electorate and to the nation.

In some ways, ISIS should be admired. They have clear goals, they want to take over all the M-E and then go for the rest of the world.

American on the other hand, says so many things from so many sides of its collective mouth, that no clear policy can ever come out of DC. America hates Al-Qaeda and its further-to-the-right off-shoot, Al-Nusra and will do everything to destroy them. The US is also completely against ISIS and wants to destroy them. The US wants to be trusted by its Muslim citizens who should feel considered and protected, by its agencies.
That’s the America P-R, the American reality is quite different and beyond comprehension of any but the invisible puppet-masters who direct US policy. As anyone can figure, the policies are driven by the moneyed folk because even our Supreme Court has allowed corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money for political campaigns…so who is the politician going to listen to?
The latest story of the American snake eating its own tail is located in the Arabia Peninsula.
