His Past was not looked into- there was no screening of candidate Obama
By Gamaliel Isaac
One day in the 1990s, I received a phone call from a U.S. intelligence service that wanted to know information about a friend of mine who was applying to join them. One of the questions was whether he had an affair that could be used to blackmail him. At the time, our commander in chief was Bill Clinton. He was telling everyone: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." I thought, "This is absurd. Why do they bother checking my friend when the president of the United States, who has access to the most highly classified information, has a reputation for philandering."
What would have happened if our current president, Barack Hussein Obama, had to pass the screening criteria intelligence agents have to pass?
Interviewer: Mr. Obama, do you feel allegiance to the United States?
Obama: "I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism."
Interviewer: Why won't you wear a lapel pin with the American flag?
Obama: "You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest."
Interviewer: You were a member of the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, were you not?
Obama: "I don't think my church is actually particularly controversial."
Interviewer: Were you aware that he said God damn America and that he referred to the United States as the "U.S. of K.K.K.A."?
Obama: "The statements that Rev. Wright made ... were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation."
Interviewer: You went to his church for 20 years and you didn't hear him say such things?

Obama: Rev. Wright "is like an old uncle who says things I don't always agree with."
Interviewer: There are those who say that you have connections to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers.
Obama: Mr. Ayers is just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood" and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis."
Interviewer: Mr. Ayers held a fundraiser for you in his home and gave money for your campaign. He approved your appointment as chairman to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge where you worked with him. He taught that children should be educated that America has a history of evil and racism and must be transformed. Do you believe that?
Obama: We "will transform America."
Interviewer: Before Mr. Ayers bombed the Pentagon he said, "Those bastards are finally going to get what is coming to them."
Obama: Mr. Ayers "engaged in despicable acts 40 years ago when I was 8 years old," and to suggest that "that reflects on me and my values doesn't make much sense."
Interviewer: You and Mr. Ayers channeled fund money to the churches of Revs. Meeks, Pfleger and Jeremiah Wright. Rev. Meeks said house niggers were protecting the white man, and Rev. Pfleger defended Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright.
Obama: I left Trinity after Rev. Pfleger made those remarks. "It's clear that now that I'm a candidate for president, every time something is said at the church by anyone associated with Trinity, including guest pastors, the remarks will be imputed to me even if they totally conflict with my long-held views, statements and principles."
Interviewer: Ayers is communist and Odinga pro-communist. Are you?
Obama: "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
Interviewer: America is facing a huge financial crisis resulting from years of spending borrowed money the country can't pay back. What policies do you believe are necessary to save the American economy?
Obama: We need to "spend our way out" of the recession and build windmills.
Interviewer: We have information that in 2006 you went to Kenya and campaigned for Raila Odinga, a pro-communist candidate running against Nairobi's pro-American government. Why did you do that?
Obama: "If the people cannot trust the government to do the job for which it exists, to protect them and promote their common welfare, all else is lost."
Interviewer: Are you aware that in exchange for Muslim support Odinga agreed to:
* rewrite the national constitution to install Shariah as the law in all "Muslim declared regions";
* elevate Islam as "the only true religion" and give Islamic leaders an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions";
* adopt Islamic dress codes for women.
Obama: Islam is "a great religion." In the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. I'm working hard to change that.
Interviewer: Do you mean that the United States should not have closed down Muslim charities that funnel money to terrorists?
Obama: Those who wish to give charity to their Muslim brothers should be able to do so.
Interviewer: After Mr. Odinga lost the election, he said the vote was rigged and incited his supporters to riot. As a result, Muslims set churches ablaze and hacked Christians to death.
You argued that to end the attacks by Mr. Odinga's supporters, he should be given a position in the Kenyan government. Do you believe that rewarding violence and appeasement is the way to make peace?
(Column continues below)
Obama: This is the "politics of fear." "I have never supported engagement with terrorists."
Interviewer: Give yourself some credit! You argued we should engage jihad-supporting Iran. Mr. Odinga signed a pact with Muslims saying that Shariah law would govern Kenya. Do you think Shariah law should govern the United States?
Obama: "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation."
Interviewer: Dear brother Hussein, you have passed the security clearance. You are our best chance to bring Khalifah to America if you don't bankrupt it first, God willing. May Allah spread confusion in the Kuffar infidel mind, and may you be the next president of the United States!
