What Newsweek Didn't Tell You About Obama & Nadhmi Auchi

Obama says he can’t be “swiftboated” according to Newsweek Magazine today.
(Nice slam on 250 Vietnam vets and POW’s, Barack!)

The article focuses on only two of Barack’s curious links– His links to the terrorist Ayers and his link to Saddam’s frontman Nadhmi Auchi.
Here is what Newsweek reported on Obama’s ties to Auchi:

Rezko’s Chicago corruption trial, meanwhile, continues to raise questions for Obama. Last week a prosecution witness testified that Obama attended a 2004 party at Rezko’s mansion for Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi tycoon who was later banned from the United States due to a fraud conviction in France. A spokeswoman for Illinois Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn told NEWSWEEK that the event was a sit-down dinner, at which Quinn made a brief speech welcoming Auchi to Chicago. According to court documents, Rezko later sought to enlist unnamed “Illinois government officials” for help lobbying the Feds to allow Auchi back into the country. A lawyer for Auchi says his client denies any wrongdoing in France and has no recollection of meeting Obama; the senator, who denies doing any favors for Auchi, “does not recall attending this event,” says Obama spokesman LaBolt, nor does he “recall meeting Mr. Auchi at any other time.”

And, here is what Newsweek left out, via the Chicago Sun-Times:


** 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!

Newsweek curiously left out that Obama toasted Auchi at the dinner.
Yet, Barack Obama doesn’t remember meeting Nadhmi Auchi?
That won’t play in the general election, Barack.
Prepare the swiftboats– It’s time for some truth.

The Talisman Gate has much more on Obama’s Saddam Connection.

And, here is an amazing video of Obama’s links to terrorist William Ayers.

UPDATE: Suzie passed on this article by Steve Chapman at Real Clear Politics where Obama’s relationship with Ayers is discussed:

Obama minimized his relationship by acknowledging only that he knows Ayers. But they have quite a bit more of a connection than that. He’s appeared on panels with Ayers (arranged by Barack’s wife Michelle), served on a foundation board with him and held a 1995 campaign event at the home of Ayers and his wife, fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn. Ayers even gave money to one of his campaigns.

Obama and Ayers also partied with former PLO operative Rashid Khalidi at his going away party.

UPDATE 2: Obama’s terrorist friends are raging Marxists, too!

UPDATE 3: Obama’s bomb-making buddy calls America a terrorist state.
