Complicated, Convincing, Too Late

Reader comment on item: Obama's Mansion, Saddam's Money

Submitted by Alex (United States), Oct 29, 2008 at 16:16

When I read the title and first paragraph of this aryicle, I thought that there must be some impostor standing in for the usually evidence-heavy writer who is Daniel Pipes. Nonetheless, the connections established in this article are convincing, and could be politically compelling due to their connection with Obama's personal life. The McCain campaign has been shying away from questioning Obama's patriotism (and, hence, the Wright, Ayers, Khalidi and flagpin issues)--instead questioning his "judgment." That is why I wish this article had been published further in advance of the election. An "October surprise" would have to be something more simple.
