TV ad targets Obama's ties to Kenyan radical

A new television ad focusing on Sen. Barack Obama’s support for radical Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga has been produced by a political action committee called Freedom’s Defense Fund.
The ad refers to the Kenyan government’s decision Oct. 7 to prevent WND reporter and author Jerome Corsi from holding a press conference in Nairobi. Corsi had planned to present the result of a week’s research in Kenya further documenting the ties between Obama and Odinga first disclosed in Chapter 4 of his No. 1 New York Times best-selling book, “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality.”
Freedom’s Defense Fund plans to run the television spot, along with others it has produced, in battleground states during the last two weeks of the campaign.
The video can be seen here:
As WND reported, Obama fundraisers and donors raised in the U.S. almost $1 million for Odinga in the three visits the Democratic presidential candidate arranged for Odinga to make to the U.S. An additional $1 million was raised for Odinga by Saif el-Islam Gadhafi, the Libyan dictator’s second oldest son.
WND also reported Obama campaigned for Odinga during a Senate “fact-finding” trip, with the arrangements made by Obama Senate staff member Mark Lippert, who Obama designated as the official “go-between” to coordinate strategy.
Sen. Barack Obama with Raila Odinga
WND has obtained a copy of an agreement Odinga signed in August 2007 with Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, the chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, that included plans for wide-ranging attacks on Christians.
In the document, Odinga promised that within six months of becoming president he would “rewrite the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared religions.”
Odinga took over the office of prime minister in Kenya after his campaign called for protests of an election he lost by more than 200,000 votes to incumbent Mwai Kibaki. The resulting violence by marauding Muslim mobs left 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and 800 Christian churches damaged or destroyed. No Islamic mosques were damaged, however.
Freedom’s Defense Fund is also running television ads on William Ayers, the radical Weather Underground bomber with whom Obama served on the Annenberg Challenge board and Woods Fund for several years; Tony Rezko, the convicted federal felon who funded Obama’s political campaigns for 17 years; and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the radical black liberation theology preacher who was Obama’s pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.
