Why the blackout on Obama’s years at Columbia ?
Ayers was apparently a good friend of Edward Said, who was also a professor at Columbia (he died in Sept. 2003), whom Obama also knew there and continued to associate with afterward. There’s a picture circulating of Obama and Said in 1998, at a dinner of Arab Americans in Chicago where Said was the keynote speaker. Said served on the Palestine Nat’l Council and wrote a forward for Ayers’ book “Fugitive Days”.
Said was a friend of Khalid al Mansour - who btw also gave lectures at Columbia - and it is Mansour who supposedly helped Obama get into Harvard. (the one thing we know for a fact, he didn’t make in on his grades, because he didn't graduate Columbia with Honors)
Who knows what student group(s) Obama was associated with at Columbia, but what I will venture to say is this: Every one of these people is/was extremely pro-palestinian and that's NOT something that Obama's people want advertised in cities and states with a large Jewish voting block, AND one more thing....you aren't supported and trusted by people like this, unless you're one of them and have proven it.
