President Obama today, in an interview with French tv station Canal Plus on I-Television:

“And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

This comment has heads exploding in some quarters. Its harmless marketing speak. The President is attempting to condition the environment in the Middle East to give the US more room to maneuver. We have reached the practical and prudent limits of military power to achieve our geopolitical goals. This is a soft power exercise.
