Desmond Tutu, Obama, & Iraq
NYT printed a feed from Agence France-Presse reporting that Desmond Tutu called on President Obama to apologise to the world for the war in Iraq and to the people of Iraq for the misery the US has inflicted on them. That is something Shrub could never have been able to accomplish. And the bile Obama would have to swallow to do this, as much as I would want it done, would take such inner strength. Only Obama could do it and we would all have to eat the bitter herbs with him inorder to taste the sweetness of a conscience somewhat assuaged.
