we are 'not and will never be at war with Islam'

Speaking to the Turkish parliament, President Obama made another of his famous breaks with the previous administration's harsh rhetoric:

'The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics; a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam. . . . I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the world. We respect your faith. It's practiced freely by many millions of Americans and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah.'
Oh, wait! That was somebody else, wasn't it? Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
