Commentary That's Worth the Pixels It's Printed On
There's a lot of commentary today on Barack Obama's speech to the Muslim world, and I imagine there will be yet more when the op-ed pages publish tomorrow. Most of this commentary doesn't matter. This speech wasn't for Americans. It was for Muslims. Success won't be measured in national poll numbers. It'll be measured in international poll numbers.
With all that in mind, the analysis I'd recommend you read is Marc Lynch's. Lynch is a professor at George Washington University and a specialist on Arab politics and media. That is to say, he actually knows something relevant to the audience and purpose of the address. So check out his thoughts. And, while you're at it, read his blog more generally. He promises that tomorrow, he'll post responses from the Muslim world.
