Mark Steyn blasts President Obama

This is a must-read post:

Meriam Ibrahim is out of the prison state of Sudan and in the free world. Sentenced to death for apostasy by Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa and forced to give birth to her baby while shackled to the wall in the filthy women’s prison at Omdurman, Meriam was released after her case received publicity in the civilized world. She, her husband and their two children are now in Rome, after an Italian government plane and the deputy foreign minister, Lapo Pistelli, were dispatched to Khartoum to fly her out.

I wrote about the Ibrahim case in previous SteynPostshere and here, in part because Meriam’s husband, Daniel Wani, is a fellow Graniter Stater. A US citizen, Mr Wani lives down south in Manchester, New Hampshire. That makes the couple’s children, young Martin and his newborn sister Maya, also American. And yet Judge Al-Khalifa ordered Meriam’s two-year-old son be imprisoned with her. As I said two months ago:

So we live in a world where a US citizen’s children can be stolen from him by a barbarous basket-case. When will the “Leader of the Free World” speak up for these young innocents who are owed the protection of his somnolent bureaucracy?

Well, President Fundraiser still hasn’t said a word, even though, to coin a phrase, if he had a son, he’d look like Martin Wani.
