The Obama-Ayers Connection

WLS has written a must-read article at Patterico's Pontifications about the relationship of Senator Barack Obama and terrorist William Ayers.

It's a detailed story but deserves to be read in full. Obama was a third-year associate at a law firm when he was made Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, responsible for handing out millions of dollars in grants to local schools...a curiously prestigious position for someone barely out of law school, even if he'd been the editor of Harvard Law Review. Ayers worked hand in hand with Obama writing grant proposals.

The University of Illinois is holding back papers -- see Stanley Kurtz's article at National Review Online -- which may show that Obama was a puppet who could funnel money for Ayers' goal of spreading Marxism in public schools.

Read the whole thing, and then head over to American Thinker to read additional information pulled together on this topic by Thomas Lifson.

Lifson also points out the Obama campaign's lie that Ayers' and Obama's children went to school together...the Ayers children are adults.

Lifson on the Annenberg documents: "Even if the archives continue to be withheld from public scrutiny, the cat is out of the bag with the documents available to all. The formidable analytical engine of bloggers trading insights and new data is warming up."
