The Truth on Obama and Ayers...

Here's the truth about Senator Obama and Bill Ayers, from someone who should know...


From The New York Times Opinion Page:

"As the lead federal prosecutor of the Weathermen in the 1970s (I was
then chief of the criminal division in the Eastern District of
Michigan and took over the Weathermen prosecution in 1972), I am
amazed and outraged that Senator Barack Obama is being linked to
William Ayers’s terrorist activities 40 years ago when Mr. Obama was,
as he has noted, just a child.

"Although I dearly wanted to obtain convictions against all the
Weathermen, including Bill Ayers, I am very pleased to learn that he
has become a responsible citizen.

"Because Senator Obama recently served on a board of a charitable
organization with Mr. Ayers cannot possibly link the senator to acts
perpetrated by Mr. Ayers so many years ago.

"I do take issue with the statement in your news article that the
Weathermen indictment was dismissed because of “prosecutorial
misconduct.” It was dismissed because of illegal activities, including
wiretaps, break-ins and mail interceptions, initiated by John N.
Mitchell, attorney general
at that time, and W. Mark Felt, an F.B.I.
assistant director."
