Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has “always been a Christian,” despite new information further confirming Obama’s Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama’s connections
and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam.
Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S.
government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding
trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation
League for its “consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism.”

First, Obama’s ties to Islamists:

The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan
Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour “was raising money for
Obama’s expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black
American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid
Bin Talal, CAIR’s largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies and he wrote a booklet titled “Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S.Arabia”
(Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Suttons Account)

The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection:
Gamble a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the
Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building
he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in
Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-
styled “amir” of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to
Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North
America (MANA’s “amir” is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator
in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing)

The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign’s first Muslim out-reach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had
served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust,with Jamal Said, another unindicted co- conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR’s Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and
to other Islamic organizations.

The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign’s second Muslim out-
reach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an
intern in the Muslim Public ServiceNetwork Immediately upon her
appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty
Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR’s Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society’s Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported
the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of
the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: “You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill
people who are innocent on their way to work.”

Second, Obama’s ties to the Nation of Islam:

Obama’s long-time donor and ally Antoin “Tony” Rezko partnered
for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Mohammud, a son of
NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family
“millions of dollars over the years.” Rezko also served as executive
director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that,
without Alis permission exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s esteemed pastor for twenty years, came
out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an
NoI security detail and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI’s leader,
as one of the “giants of the African American religious experience.”
Wright’s church celebrated Farrakhan for his having “truly epitomized

Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him “The Hope of The
Entire World” “one who can lift America from her fall,” and even
“The Messiah”

That Obama’s biography touches so frequently on such unsavory
organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause.
How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less
seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama “a person you
do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States,” but

Obama’s multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he
would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.

Islamic aggression represents America’s strategic enemy; Obama’s
many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to
serve as America’s commander-in-chief.

    I believe I stated this fact in an earlier post. Its ironic that this Socialist could not even get a security clearance and the dopes in this country are going to elect him in 10 days. Uggggghhhhhh it makes me sick even thinking about it. We are doomed for a little while.

    The media made Obama and if his commie plans materialize eventually
    there will no longer be ‘Freedom of the Press” Isn’t that ironic and very
    well deserved. Even now Obama shows his disdain for the media. All they
    have to do is question him on something he’d rather not have brought up,
    and he throws them on his ‘black list’.

    I guess the media doesn’t understand that the first thing a communist
    government does is eliminate a “Free Press”.

    Well you can’t say they don’t deserve it.
