Obama learns Arabic for French TV channel


A French TV station is promoting its new Arabic broadcasts by showing mock footage of President Obama, Bill Gates, Queen Elizabeth II and Chinese president Hu Jintao learning the Arabic language. Obama supposedly doesn't know a foreign language—something he has called "embarrassing" in the past. But at this point, Arabic probably wouldn't be his first choice—given that certain segments of the media already wonder "if the president hasn't been concealing some greater fluency with the language of the Koran."
