The 2012 presidential election campaign has been disappointing. Perhaps the most disappointing thing about this election is that were President Obama white it is likely he would be on his way to a landslide victory.
President-elect Obama, unlike Bush, is al-Qaeda's greatest fear: an upstanding American who has earned the world's respect with his strong moral convictions, thirst for global unity and promise of diplomacy.
It still amazes me how after seven years, the U.S. media is still suckered by what al-Qaeda leaders have to say or preach. Hardly anyone in the Middle East these days pays close attention to their speeches.
