there will be lots of what obama calls bumps in the road, but things are finally moving in the right direction in the arab world...
I'd feel better if those that attacked our embassy had been dragged through the streets, beheaded, and then hung on a bridge.

Once that happens I'd agree with your take things in the ME will get better.

The only ones that can eliminate the extremists are Muslims themselves. Instead we aren't granted access to the only one in custody. That gives the appearance Libya doesn't really give a shit and just wants our aid. That should make anyone cynical on progress being made in the ME and of our policies.
