Obama is lending Al-Qaeda Moral Legitimacy

Forbes’ David Satter makes the excellent point, that by Obama’s criticism of America in regards to Al-Qaeda’s actions, he lends a powerful tool to the terror organization’s war effort: Moral Legitimacy.  Lose moral legitimacy, lose world-wars.

    I agree except I’m sure the average bomb strapping terrorist has little concern for moral legitimacy. I’m sure the end justifies the means for them. Destination is more important than the trip from their eyes.

    It’s easier to recruit terrorists when they hear an American President telling them they’ve been wronged by America. Also, our allies lose confidence that America is in the right.

    Mr. President, please continue to bomb the living hell out of people that want me dead.
