American Interests' 1st Anniversary: You're Invited

A year ago today, Ottavio launched American Interests, a blog with a remarkable premise: That America is good for the world.

In Ottavio's words, "With any luck, American Interests … is helping to address what I deem as a prevailing rationality void in relation to America's role in our world."

Today, celebrating his blog's first anniversary, he wrote: "Welcome to the party, invite your friends, and hope you enjoy the virtual cake - at least it’s not fattening!" ("Happy First Anniversary American Interests" (April 28, 2008).)

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
