Earlier this month, The Washington Times ran an editorial saying that President Obama’s communication and inclusion efforts with Muslims “may not be working” (“Obama panders to Islam (again),” Opinion, Sept. 4). Your evidence is a July poll by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, which found that majorities or pluralities of residents of many Muslim populations do not have confidence in the president “to do the right thing regarding world affairs,” as your editorial puts it.

I Googled this poll report. You failed to mention that the poll indicates that Muslim populations have significantly more confidence in Mr. Obama than they did in President Bush in 2008. In other words, it’s a start in the right international diplomatic direction.
