Dear Hillary: If the Locals are Screaming "Allahu Akbar," It's Kind of a Clue That We're NOT on the Same Page

Hillary Clinton is in Libya, of all places, and she's pledging to prop up the ebullient new rulers:
TRIPOLI, Libya — In a historic visit punctuated by celebratory gunfire and cries of “God is great,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton toured the Libyan capital Tuesday to pledge continued U.S. support for a transitional government still struggling to consolidate control over the war-ravaged country...
I'm sure they're "moderate" cries of Allahu Akbar and nothing at all like the ones shouted by, say, the Fort Hood shooter.

They're not only shouting "Allahu Akbar!" and shooting weapons into the air--what is it with Arabs and the shooting into the air thing? . . . they do it here in Jacksonville, too--they're also lynching sub-Saharan blacks (and some of the local ones too, in the process) as part of the celebration. Isn't Hillary the wife of the first metaphorically black (ex-)President? . . . not to mention Secretary of State for the first physically (sort of) black President? Shouldn't she disapprove publicly?

I guess having an official Third World designation means never having to say you're sorry (unless, of course, you align yourself with the interests of the West, which makes you a despicable imperialist running dog).
