Media wisely buries story about Sen. Obama’s advisor with terrorist ties

Asbahi - Nothing to see here

Asbahi - Nothing to see here

In a complete non-story, U.S. Media either buried, or failed to report that Democratic Nominee Barack Obama’s “muslim outreach advisor” recently resigned due to involvement in an Islamic investment fund and various islamic groups — what might also be considered terrorist backing.

Buried on page A-4 of the Wall Street Journal, and at the very bottom of their online website, Mazen Asbahi, appointed volunteer national coordinator for Muslim American affairs by the Obama campaign on July 26, stepped down Monday after an Internet newsletter wrote about his brief stint on the fund’s board, which also included a fundamentalist imam (see: “terrorists”).

Asbahi stepped down to avoid “distraction” to Obama’s campaign, and the media wisely did not report or ask questions about this strange tie between Sen. Obama and potential terrorist organizations – they also did not want to distract.

In other news, nothing to worry about when Obama states that he may want to arbitrarily take company profits.  Move along.
