Hussein Obama - 12th Imam?Topics: Political News and commentaries
Well, not exactly!
It's been a slow news day, so I just couldn't help but put this up. I'm not suggesting that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, but the image goes along with today's news of Obama admitting that he went to Pakistan in college. He went on to say, "I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee..." So he obviously had to have had some kind of exposure to Islam while there. Was it from visiting a madrassa or perhaps, another one of his "spiritual advisors" (i.e. Jeremiah Wright)?
As a commenter notes at Free Republic (above link), there's usually only one reason for most non-Pakis to travel to Pakistan (except for commercial reasons) - madrassa-based "training." Unless Obama can identify a commercial reason for going there, his trip brings up more questions than answers. We could start with what year(s) did he visit Pakistan, where did he go when he was there, and how long did he stay! Was 1986 the year of his visit to Pakistan - the same year that Obama's mother did a one-year development project there?
