"Obama's Kenya Ghosts"

Don't stand so close to me: Cousins Barack and Raila

"Kenyans are now yearning for change," declared Barack Obama stumping for his cousin Raila Odinga in Kenya two years ago.

Earlier this year, after now Prime Minister Odinga riled up the troops following his initial election loss, Odinga's people herded Christians into churches and burned them to the ground.

Now this:

"...Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya's Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.

The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who "allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists," adoption of a women's dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork..."

More details on Obama's brand of radical. As if the connection to Bill "Bring the revolution home! Kill your parents!" Ayers wasn't enough...

"...Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany's Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro."

The above piece from Mark Hyman in 'The Washington Times' deserves major play. I guarantee it won't get it. And if McCain mentions it, he'll be labeled a racist engaged in dirty politics.

So Barack Obama can be seen on YouTube stumping for a Marxist, mass-murdering, pro-Islamic, blood relative; is tight friends with Marxist terrorist Bill Ayers; and remains a member of a Marxist, anti-Semitic, pro-Hamas church that even Oprah Winfrey left and publicly repudiated not long ago.

So which is it? Is Barack Obama another lying politician with a spinning moral compass? Or is he really that clueless?
