Nation of Islam activists on Obama camp payroll – WND

Sen. Barack Obama employed and continues to employ senior staffers who belong to the Nation of Islam, and the presidential candidate has some “worrying” ties to the controversial group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a former key Obama insider told WND.

The former insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed particular concern that Obama employed at least two Nation members in his early days as a state senator, when his office was staffed by only a handful of workers.

“When you’re a state senator, you have little money given to you to hire staff. It is ironic that two of Obama’s employees in those days were known Nation of Islam activists when Obama employed perhaps a total of maybe three or four staffers,” said the former insider.

The former insider confirmed Obama is directly aware of the Nation of Islam members on his staff.

“Ironic” is not the word I would use to describe these circumstances.    I wonder sometimes what it will take for people to understand that Barack Obama’s sympathies lie with Muslims, regardless of how radical they might be.
