This article is a pretty good read. Bob Geldof won’t soon be mistaken for a conservative or a Republican, and he plainly lays out his severe misgivings about Iraq. But credit where it’s due: Geldof is clearly impressed by this president’s commitment to Africa. What commitment to Africa, you say? The one that an uninterested press is loathe to talk about, even though in Geldof’s words, the policies of this administration have saved millions of lives. For any of my readers who might argue that this president has done almost nothing good, this article will change your mind, unless it’s so jaded that you can’t be objective.
And the amazing thing is that I knew almost nothing about it. Say what you will about this president, and he’s not my favorite either, but he’s done a world of good in a place that most of the world cares little about.
