Assigned Reading: Suborned in the U.S.A.
(FROM: National Review)
Even on the day I broke the story of the first lawsuit filed with regard to the ongoing controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s birth, I cautioned that I could not attest to the veracity of the claims in the suit. I still cannot, and I don’t see a problem with it. Why? Because, to me, the controversy isn’t just about Obama’s birth, but about his personal history and personal accountability as a whole.
Andrew McCarthy, in this lengthy article at National Review, does a phenomenal job of wrapping up exactly what the continued questions mean to me. (I say “lengthy” because reading it took up much of my time at this Internet terminal at a local mall, not as a judgment of how readable or necessary it may be.) See, the controversy has been about the greater issue of Barack Obama’s honesty — that’s why, as the theories became more and more “out there,” such as the Frank-Marshall-Davis-as-Barry’s-Real-Father idea, I drew further and further away here at America’s Right. To me, it’s never been about the details, never about the proverbial pissing match which erupted between various factions of those seeking the truth about Obama’s background. It’s been about his accountability, on this and on everything else. Not to mention the failure of the mainstream press to do its job.
Anyway, I saw the McCarthy piece, and felt that everyone here needed to read it. My time here is done. I’ll see all of you stateside in a few days’ time.
