Is Muammar Gaddafi a Freeper?

The Washington Post published a thorough piece of investigative work today.
(That should be your first clue that it has something to do with conservatives.)

The article “An Attack That Came Out of the Ether” looks into those “Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim” emails that have been circulating the internet the last couple of years. Danielle Allen, a brilliant mind at the Institute for Advanced Study (and Obama supporter?), delves into the origins of the anonymous chain e-mails that make “the false claim that Obama is concealing an Islamic background”.

Allen’s investigation led her to the Free Republic website– although, she found no proof that any of the Freepers had started one of the Obama-Muslim emails. Allen also found that a former rival of Obama’s, Andy Martin, was sending out emails about his Muslim roots.

But, Allen left out an essential piece in the “Obama-is-Muslim” puzzle.

Danielle Allen did not interview Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Not everyone agrees with the Washington Post that Obama is not a Muslim. Libyan dictator Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi this month threw his support behind Obama saying that–
Obama should be proud of his Muslim heritage:

Gaddafi said the whole Arab world is ready to throw their financial support behind this Muslim candidate. MEMRI and LiveLeak have the video of Gaddafi’s Obama endorsement.

Maybe, Allen should interview Gaddafi and ask him if he sent out the email?

She may also want to talk with Obama’s own brother in Kenya Malik Obama who says that Obama is a Muslim. This may help the scholar with her important research project.
