Then, there's this out of Egypt on the eve of Mr. Obama's SPEECH TO THE ARAB WORLD...in THIS ARTICLE :
That's what worries Egyptians such as Nour, who fear that Obama is prepared to tolerate a certain amount of repression from Middle East allies willing to help him with more complex regional issues.
"Thursday's speech is going to be a turning point," Nour said. "It's either going to be a chance for him to reach out to support the people who supported him or it's going to be a time that he takes into consideration regimes and parties that are hated by the people." (Who supported WHOM?)
ALSO: Obama's going to DRESDEN on this trip...You don't think he'll apologize for World War II, DO YOU? (In the meantime, the German Conservative government is mad as hell that Obama's not going to Berlin, when he'd been invited there....REALLY angry; somebody's got to get Mr. Obama a BIT less tone deaf. London, Paris, ...no Berlin.)
