Should we vote in a president that doesn't even deserve high level sevurity clearence?

I believe there are legitimate questions about whether Obama even should have full sucurity clearence. My wife, a patriotic American, managed to fail a CIA security clearence about 20 years ago, and found work elsewhere. She was a zero risk person. Meanwhile Obama has a 1st cousin with substantial east African Islamic links.

One of Osama Bin Laden's sons apparently spoke out against his father's methods and violence. I applaud his brave stance, but there is a limit to how far I would trust him. I think being the 1st cousin of an significant African Islamist is a material issue concerning his candidacy, yet I doubt 5% of voting Americans have any knowledge of this relationship.

Thanks Dr. Pipes for helping expose Obama's Islamic links.
