The Crusades in Political Speech. Obama

This article Edward B. Driscoll, Jr. opened by taking Obama to task for criticizing the Crusades. The article continues by describing an eight-part video on the Crusades in The Western Story. A criticism one might provide is that the facts and perspective in the article are definitely western in perspective. The Byzantine and Eastern Christians saw things different as did, of course, the Muslims. Broadening the perspective would help.

The truth about the Crusades.
