President Obama Approves: Somalia Appoints New President Who Has Connections To al-Qaeda, Terror In Iraq

This is Change? A government which supports and funds terrorists is now considerate a "moderate" government? Can anyone tell me what is happening?

In an article which celebrates President Bush's "failure" of using a "big stick" on Islamist foreign policy and states that "the new Doctor Obama has come to heal what was exacerbated by the Bush era"Asharq Alawsat reports:

The features of Obama's presidency have started to become clear before the end of his first 100 days in office, upon which traditionally the performance of the new US President is assessed.

The Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, and with Obama's blessing, is courting the Taliban leadership, promising them that those that chose peace with his government will be involved in power. While in Somalia, Sheik Sharif Ahmed of the Union of Islamic Courts [UIC] has become the new President of Somalia, the UIC was viewed as a terrorist organization by the Bush administration, but is viewed as moderate by the new US Obama administration. And so as I noted in my previous article [The Somalization of Hamas] Obama gave his blessing to Sheik Sharif Ahmed's appointment as President, while the following article expands upon a number of issues raised in that one.

The most obvious indication to the moderate Islamic trends in the Arab world of the new policies of the Obama administration can be seen with regards to comments made by J. Scott Carpenter, a US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, and the Director of Project Fikra which focuses on empowering Arab democrats in their struggle against extremist. In response to a question about the US administrations willingness to accept the political consequences that may result from democratic reform [in the Arab and Islamic world] including the possibility of Islamic political movements coming to power, Carpenter answered that his government was ready to recognize this no matter what the consequences.

It should be noted that the UIC supports al-Qaeda and hope to establish a Taliban-like regime in Somalia. The organization supports Wahhabi, a radical form of Islam suspected in encouraging and funding recent terror attacks in Iraq.
