Why al Qaeda doesn’t get it

Last week Ayman al-Zawahiri called Barack Obama a “house slave,” citing Malcolm X and in general trying to comment on U.S. domestic politics. As Colbert King explains, he got it dead wrong:

In his blind hatred of the West, Zawahiri missed the transforming event of 2008. On Election Day, more than 66 million Americans of every color, religion, age group, gender and region of the country freely, and with knowledge aforethought, decided to make Zawahiri’s “house slave” Obama, master of the White House and commander in chief of the most powerful military arsenal on the face of the earth. If anyone is a captive, it is Ayman al-Zawahiri, and of his own ignorance.
