At the risk of upsetting someone of sensitive nature

who might happen to find this, I have something to offer:
Without knowing it, he had broken a time-honored maxim of that world: Never speak ill of your own people when in the company of strangers. There was too little recognition of the malignant trilogy—anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism and anti-modernism—that had poisoned the life of Egypt and much of the region. . . .
Could be that he didn't consider it a problem because he doesn't consider us 'his people'?

I am confused. Is this something the light bringer said, or is this something Fouad Ajami wrote? The source is distressingly vague about this, and I've never had a President who said so many things and then had his lickspittle lackeys of the media fall all over themselves with stress urination in their haste to explain "what he really meant" had he had a second draft for his words.

And I'm sorry to fill your comments with sequential comments, but this sort of apocryphal apology from the President of the United States? The leader of (as we used to say) Free World? This is the sort of thing one learns early in one's political career, and by the time one is elected President of the United States, one shouldn't need to call out one's flying monkeys so frequently to put right the remarks that come out of one's mouth. If the lickspittle lackeys of the media were as eager to find "gotcha" moments from the words of The Light Bringer, more people would recognize that 47% is absolutely nothing compared to saying stuff that cause riots around the world and deaths of ambassadors and scores of other unknown and unnamed people. And I'm not blaming this on the agent provocateur film that is the alleged spark. I'm blaming this all on the gasoline vapor that is everywhere thanks to the Cairo Doctrine and the religion of the perpetually offended. What-- all those rioters wanted to riot over the "Innocense of Muslims" but their riot permit and Ambassador Hunting License didn't get approved until September 11? So much that comes out of the media now is a more vulgar version of Judy Sheindlin's (Judge Judy) book, "Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell me it's Raining".
