one thing in English for the West and anethor in Arabic for Muslims so does the obama administration say one thing to citizens and anethor to the rest of the word, the ones who really count to Obama. Look up the islamic concept of Taqiyya.In addition, the operation may have been run by the CIA without specific permission from Mr. Obama who might have restricted them from making him look bad to other Muslims.

So many wonderful memories of Bob, what a wonderful neighbor and friend he was to our family, the Houses. Living across the street from Bob and Ethel was like living next to a second mother and father. Rod and I send condolences to the entire Hook family, and love and strength to Ethel.
