Obama Describes Murder of US Ambassador to Libya And Mid East Violence as 'Bumps in The Road'

I would hate to see what a set back would look like...

"President Barack Obama referred to recent events in the Middle East, including violent attacks on embassies and the terrorist murder of a US ambassador and three other Americans, as 'bumps in the road'.

The comment came in Obama's CBS '60 Minutes' interview that aired on Sunday night.
Steve Kroft, the interviewer, asked: 'Have the events that took place in the Middle East, the recent events in the Middle East given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the Arab Spring?

Obama responded: 'Well, I’d said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change.

  1. Obama is doing the right thing. Yes, it is a terrible event for those who have suffered loss. But it isn't the end of the world for improving relations in the longer term. A real leader must make these doesn't mean the leader concerned doesn't feel the tragedy of specific events keenly. He appointed the guy to the job that got him killed.
