Report: Photo Showing Obama in Somali Garb Circulated by Clinton Campaign Source

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on February 25, 2008


A photo showing Barack Obama dressed in Somali garb is being circulated by campaign staffers working for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to DrudgeReport.com.

FOX News is working to confirm the report.

The photo was taken in 2006 during a trip through Africa. Obama was dressed as a Somali elder during a visit to southwestern Kenya, said the Drudge Report, which said a Clinton staff member had provided the photo to the Web site.

According to Drudge, the unnamed campaign staffer said: “Wouldn’t we be seeing this on the cover of every magazine if it were HRC,” short-hand for the candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Obama, a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, has repeatedly fended off attacks that he is a Muslim. But the attacks have been decried by both candidates: One Clinton campaign volunteer was asked to step down after forwarding an e-mail containing that rumor.

Election 2008-the Jerry Springer show of Politics. At least we get to watch the destruction of the Clinton machine..

More dirty tricks from the Clintons and stupidity from Obama for allowing himself to photographed wearing muslim looking garb…

    There is no low the Clintons wont stoop to. On the other hand, I doubt many Americans want to be reminded of just who Obama really is..

    Like they said on the Daily Show last night, “Somehow, this image doesn’t inspire fear in us.” :o)
