MUHAMMAD: Who 'Lost' America?

Close on South Africa’s heels were the Palestinians, whose leader Yasser Arafat, chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, was also labeled a “terrorist” by this government. While elsewhere in the Muslim world – Afghanistan (2,229 U.S. dead and counting), Iraq (4,488 U.S. dead), Sudan, Yemen, Lebanon – the Islamic “genie” exploded on the world stage.

Who “lost” the Muslim world? George H.W. Bush (6,223 U.S. dead)? Colin Powell? Condoleezza Rice? Bill Clinton (7,500 U.S. dead)? George W. Bush (8,792 U.S. dead)? Dick Cheney?

So, after all these decades of shameful conduct, along comes Barack Hussein Obama. He was elected president in 2008, and then reelected by a landslide in 2012. His aim was to reform America into that “Shining City on The Hill,” the land all the people of the world once again admired and wanted to grow up to be just like. But what has he gotten for his efforts? More hatred than has ever been shown to any president of the U.S., ever!

And so it will be. One day in the future when Americans wake up and discover that 250-plus years of tyranny has deservedly earned this country world scorn, the racist, xenophobic, White pundits who have charted America’s errant course to destruction will say as the Tea Party Klan Klaverns are saying today: “Barack Obama is the one Who Lost America.”
