Take this with a huge grain of salt from the usual corner: No Quarter.
It is being reported today that Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times has in his possession a tape recording of an interview he once had with Barack Obama that may be very damaging to the latter’s campaign for the presidency.
The tape (and the transcript of it) stem from a February 27, 2007 visit Kristof paid to Obama’s senate offices. A column Kristof wrote based upon this interview appeared in the New York Times on March 6, 2007.
What may be damning about the interview, the transcript of it and—especially—the original tape recording is that Obama allegedly provided Kristof with a recitation from memory of the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic. One of Obama’s cousins in Africa has stated in the recent past that Obama was, indeed, once a Muslim. Kristof’s interview records may prove this more definitively.
Personally, I don’t care whether he’s a muslism or not. I do find it’s amusing that many of these sensational rumors such as ‘whitey tape’ etc were from disgruntled Clinton supporters’ corner. Right wing or left wing conspiracy?
Operation Chaos continues?
