This weeks interview in Newsweek with Valerie Jarrett concluded with a nauseating feeling that they will never get it. She is suppose to be the other half of Obama’s brain as you may recall? I thought she was gone, apparently a resurrection. He wants to continue the Cairo bit?? A redo of part of one of my earlier posts then quotes from the interview:
Valerie Jarrett-Named Iranian of the Month
Obama’s closest aide is Shirazi
Jarrett is a member of African-American and Chicago royalty. But her story and her life begin in the Middle East, not the Midwest. She was born in 1956 in Shiraz, Iran, Hospital, where Jarrett was born, and spent her early years. ”Every memory from Iran is a very happy memory,” Jarrett told me in an e-mail. http://www.iranian.com/main/singlepage/2008/valerie-jarrett . Jarrett speaks Persian-Farsi and French.
“I had the honor of being in Shiraz and was student and later friend of Professor and Mrs Bowman (Valerie parent).
This Family is highly exceptional and Dr Bowman loves Iran and Shiraz and had been in touch with Shiraz ever since Valerie was in Shiraz and she is a brilliant and superb individual who belong to entire world”
You were born in Iran.
I was born in Iran. It was a very different country then than it is now. But I think what I learned, and actually what President Obama and I talked about at our first dinner—he having spent a good portion of his childhood in Indonesia—is that it gives you a different perspective to have lived outside of the United States. It teaches you a huge appreciation for our country. But it also teaches you this global perspective that helps inform decisions throughout life’s pathway.
Now you’re going with the president to Indonesia?
I am. He is looking forward to going back. It’s the largest Muslim population in the world. [The trip] gives him the opportunity to continue the dialogue he started in Cairo several months ago. http://www.newsweek.com/id/234534
