Obama and Islam

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama was a kid

Glenn (Denmark) pointed out, as well as the article, that Obama practiced Islam during the years 1967-1971. We all read that he lived in Indonesia, where Christianity,Islam and Hinduism is practiced. He is also a product of an Muslim father, which inherently makes him a Muslim.

With all that aside, what gets me is how people are using this 4 years of childhood experience as Barack's FOREIGN POLICY experience! Its ABSURD! HE is campaigning that after living in a Islamic nation that would give him better credential to be a president because he has had experience to deal with the Islamic nation!

For crying out loud, He was 6 or 7 years old! He knows how to deal with Islamic leaders and their constituents at the age of 6! Blatant LIE and outright STUPIDITY. He went to Harvard to make that argument. Obama supporters are delusional.
