When President Obama spoke last week of the opportunities presented by the Arab Spring, he got a lot right. His calling out of the Arab states was long overdue and dead on.
But he got some big things wrong.
The time has come for us to take the new technology available to terrorists seriously. The United States recently crowned Anwar al-Awlaki the newest "most dangerous terrorist in the world." And yet an American company, YouTube, has been giving al-Awlaki open access to the world's largest bully pulpit.
The decision by President Obama to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia is wrong.
It was leaked last week that the Obama administration was preparing to notify Congress of its intent to sell $60 billion in high tech arms, including F-15's and military helicopters, to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
