Hope?… Obama Ex-con Supporter & Rezko Buddy Wants US Troops Dead …BIG UPDATE!!
You may want to hose down after reading this filth.
This is scummy Chicago-Rezko-Obama politics at its worst.

Ayham Alsammarae, Iraq’s slimy ex-Minister of Electricity under the Bremer and Allawi administrations, who had escaped from an Iraqi prison by hiring an American security company to break him out back in December 2006, has resurfaced in the Jordanian capital Amman where he gave a press conference today saying, among other things, that he hoped that the insurgency in Iraq “would continue [against U.S. occupation] and avenges the Iraqi people.”
Alsammarae, an Iraqi-American Chicagoan, added during remarks carried by Radio Sawa (Arabic link) that he had contributed the maximum allowable of $2,300 to Barack Obama’s campaign.
But there’s another Obama link to Alsammarae: while serving as electricity minister Alsammarae had been involved in brokering deals in the Iraqi electricity sector for Antoin Rezko, Obama’s long-term friend and patron. Rezko is the Syrian-American hustler who was convicted of fraud in an Illinois court on the day that Obama secured the Democratic nomination.
There is much more at Talisman Gate.
Rezko and Alsammarae were college room-mates.
Big Hat Tip BG!
More… Bill Baar’s Westside says that Alsammarae’s family members were working with Durbin and Obama’s offices for his return to Chicago. There are reports that hundreds of millions went missing when he was the electricity minister in Iraq.
It’s no surprose then that Aiham Alsammarae helped bail out buddy Antoin “Tony” Rezko from jail in Chicago.
BIG— UPDATE: Alsammarae was seen partying at the Rezko residence with Illinois Democratic Governor Blagojevich and Rezko buddy Nadhmi Auchi, via Illinoize in 2004:
Controversial figure Nadhmi Auchi met with Illinois Democratic Governor Blagojevich at the Rezko residence in 2004. Look who is sitting in the background. Auchi was a big hit with the Illinois Democrats, via Illinoize.
But, that’s not all…
*** Barack Obama said he didn’t recall a party at Tony Rezko’s home where Saddam Hussein’s intelligence service frontman Nadhi Auchi was the guest of honor but not there are reports that Obama actually made a few toasts at the party.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported (here):
** To wit: Dem presidential contender Barack Obama’s handlers may be telling the press Obama has NO “recollection” of a 2004 party at influence peddler Tony Rezko’s Wilmette house, but a top Sneed source claims Obama not only gave Rezko’s guest of honor, Iraqi billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, a big welcome… but he made a few toasts!
“Hope and Change” or just “Chicago-style Politics”?
UPDATE 2: A. Jacksonian put together a report on Obama’s many crooked connections in Iraq.
No wonder he doesn’t want to go there!
