Obama: U.S. Could Be Seen as A Muslim Country

Only in your dreams/our nightmares.

From Jeff Zeleny, NY Times:

In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world “have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.”

...“And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,” Mr. Obama said. “And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.”

> N.F.: Oh, I think those of us who are paying attention have a good understanding of the Muslim world. <

The president is flying Air Force One directly from Washington to Riyadh. The White House press corps — traveling on a chartered United 767 — is refueling in Hahn, Germany.
> N.F.: Excuse me, but didn't the WH Press Corps used to travel on AF One? Are they relegated to a separate plane because Obama doesn't want to be bothered with pesky questions? Is his transparent presidency becoming murky?<

Are You paying attention yet?
