Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Obama a Shiite

For obvious reasons, in general, the US policy for the last 30 years and in particular, during the reign of Bush 1st and 2nd supported Iran against Arabs and Shiite against Sunnis. GWB went as far as waging war for the Islamic Republic of Iran in Afghanistan and Iraq. Do not blame Obama for walking the road of surrender that was paved and constructed completely by GWB. True, Bush would look you in the eyes with a posture of determination while surrendering to Iran while Obama decided to drop the mask; approach Lady Iran; confess love; and pop the question. It is just a matter of style. Obama is as Shiite as George W Bush.
