Luttwak Goes Ga-Ga on Obama

How else to interpret this rambling Op-Ed where renowned Edward N. Luttwak, “fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and author of Strategy: The Logic of War and Peace” transform himself into an improbable Shari’a expert, declaring Obama an “apostate”?

President Apostate? By EDWARD N. LUTTWAK – Published: May 12, 2008

I am perfectly sure that even in the darkest Afghanistan at the time of Mullah Omar, somebody’s religious choices in his 20’s, starting from an almost perfectly blank slate, would not have been considered evidence for “apostasy”.

Luttwak disingenuosly tries to justify his poor arguments with “all the well-meaning desires projected on Senator Obama, the hope that he would decisively improve relations with the world’s Muslims is the least realistic“. Methinks there is one way to improve relations with the world’s Muslims, and that is to have a President that is not called George W Bush.

Blissfully, the US Constitution will make that happen, on January 20, 2009.

  1. Never underestimate the human capacity for bigotry, intolerance, dogmatic slavishness, and gross stupidity. Somewhere out there out Muslims who love to kill Obama over his supposed apostasy.

    Of course Hinkley(?) tried to kill Reagan in order to impress the woman he was stalking…
