The Obama administration has a lot of faith in their main man coming through with his 'gift,' you know, blathering on endlessly, saying really nothing, and walking away thinking he got something done.

Taliban Mohammed: 'We demand that the West yield to Sharia immediately. To deny the Word of Allah is blasphemy, and will be dealt with severely. We insist on beheading as the penalty.
Obama: 'Well, my good friend Mohammed, those are pretty tough terms. Is there any wiggle room in your demands for human rights, women's rights, gay rights, you know, that kind of stuff?'
Taliban Mohammed: 'My good friend, President Obama. So sorry, we are not really at liberty to negotiate the words of The Prophet and those of Allah. We insist on beheading infidels who do not submit to Islam and the ways of Sharia.'
Obama: 'Well, how about we agree that rather than beheadings of all infidels who do not submit to Islam, we simply cut off one of their hands. Can we agree to that?
Taliban Mohammed: 'Gee, I don't know. I'll take it back to my people and see what they say. But I can't really guarantee you anything, Mr. Obama, as they are pretty set in their ways, and beheadings are traditionally the way we deal with you infidels.'
Obama: 'Great, great! See, we can make some headway if we just sit down and talk to each other...'
