Though former Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano is leading the delegation, thus sending a subtle message on security, but does anyone think she inspires sufficient fear? Perhaps a better choice would be Admiral William McRaven, the Navy SEAL who heads U.S. Special Operations Command and planned the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden. In other words, somebody who might actually make terrorists think twice.
Lastly, for somebody who has staked his legacy on winning over Muslims, doesn't it strike Obama that the "in-your-face" LGBT advocacy in a place where notoriously homophobic radical Islamic terrorists run rampant is somewhat counter-intuitive and provocative?
My advice for the White House is to stop placing politics over security. Obama and his team must re-think priorities and focus on issues that could be the difference between life and death for countless Americans.
