This is good to see, since it certainly is unbalanced. One of the main ways it is out of balance is by the focus on Al Qaeda, as if it were the sole originator and carrier of the idea that Muslims must wage war against and subjugate unbelievers. But Obama is not likely to rebalance it to correct that.
“‘Rebalancing Our Fight Against Al Qaeda,'” by John McCormack for The Weekly Standard, July 24:
In President Obama’s campaign-style speech on the economy, he mentioned some non-economic priorities:
“Of course, we”ll keep pressing on other key priorities, like reducing gun violence, rebalancing our fight against al Qaeda, combating climate change, and standing up for civil rights and women’s rights.”
I’ve heard of winning or losing fights, but what does “rebalancing our fight against al Qaeda” mean? It’s a phrase Obama hasn’t used used before.
