Photo of Obama in Muslim Attire Sparks Controversy

by at . Comments

A photo of Barack Obama donning traditional Muslim attire as a goodwill gesture during an overseas trip has sparked controversy.

The picture, which mysteriously surfaced yesterday, was attributed by The Drudge Report to sources within the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

The site did not reveal who might have released the photo, but it reeks of political fear-mongering. Here's the picture in question...

Barack Obama donned the traditional Muslim garments during a trip to Kenya in 2006. Like many high-ranking U.S. visitors, he received such clothing as a gift.

Obama's father is Kenyan, his mother from Kansas. The senator is Christian and has been a member of Chicago's United Church of Christ for 20 years.

These facts did not stop some Clinton volunteers from circulating e-mails that falsely claimed Barack Obama is a Muslim late last year.

That bogus rumor (which he has worked hard to dispel) and the release of this picture are pathetic ploys to stoke the fears of ignorant Americans.

Hillary Clinton aides also suggested that his drug use as a young man might make him vulnerable to GOP attacks if he were the Democratic nominee.

She makes a point there. Thank goodness Bill Clinton didn't inhale, otherwise he might have left himself vulnerable to GOP attacks. Phew!

How much more shameless and desperate can the former First Lady get? Stay tuned - the proverbial bar just keeps finding a way to go lower.
