Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Brandon (United States), Aug 25, 2008 at 19:39

... Look he spent a few years in a country that is predominantly Muslim when he was a kid. He is 47 years old and has been in the US at least 43 years. To act as though his whole life is shrouded in mystery is absurd. It's fine to determine the facts, as I think the article did for the most part, but to infer from the article or any other real investigation that Barack Obama is somehow un-american or does not have the interest of this country in mind, is completely lazy and ignorant.

Focus on the policies that he espouses and make your decision on who to vote for from that. Quit allowing yourselves to be overwhelmed with complete paranoia and use some of that brainpower on researching and understanding the issues and American foreign policy so you can make an informed decision about the future of our country and the world.
