CNN Ignores Bernardine Dohrn's Terrorist Past While Defending Obama

The mainstream media is going through another one of their meltdown moments as they rush to defend Barack Obama from his relationship with American terrorists William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. (plural)

John Stephenson of Newsbusters detailed CNN's supposed fact check that came in response to a speech that Sarah Palin gave. In that speech Palin did the job the mainstream media refuses to do by mentioning the words terrorists, relationships and Barack Obama in a single sentence while referring to the former Weather Underground leaders.

In rushing to Barack Obama's defense CNN slipped the following into the end of their fact check: 

The McCain campaign did not respond Saturday to a request for elaboration on Palin's use of the plural "terrorists."

Well excuse me, but why should they? If CNN doesn't know that Bernardine Dohrn was a leader of the Weather Underground while they were bombing federal buildings and police stations why should the McCain campaign give CNN the legitimacy of a real news organization by providing a response?

It may not matter to CNN that Bernardine Dohrn traveled to Cuba to meet with the North Vietnamese government in 1969 while Barack Obama's opponent was being held captive in a prisoner of war camp but it certainly is a point of interest that should not be covered up and downplayed by those that wish to sweep these facts under the covers out of allegiance to Barack Obama.

The question about "plural terrorists" itself is folly and wholly misleading. Barack Obama launched his political career at the home of not one, but two unrepentant American terrorists.

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and  Bernardine Dohrn also worked at the same law firm according to sources. Of course there is the possibility that they may not have been palling around at the time but it is indisputable that their paths crossed repeatedly. 

There is much more about the Dohrn story that goes relatively unnoticed. According to the Canada Free Press she has made frequent guest appearances at events sponsored by George Soros.

She stated in 1982 that “Those of us who participated in the [Vietnam] anti-war movement were not drastic enough” even though Americans died as a result of their bombings. 

Both Ayers and Dohrn waged war on the U.S. government. They not only live in the same neighborhood as the Obama's but actually welcomed Barack Obama into their home where he was introduced as an up and comer on the political scene.

CNN may attempt to rewrite history but they can not change these facts. That CNN or any other news organization has decided that the American people have heard all they need to hear about the connections between William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and two people that may sit in the White House shaping policy and forging new relationships throughout the world is a verdict in and of itself.
