Hannity: Ayers Dedicated Book to RFK Assassin and Other 'Political Prisoners'

October 31st, 2008 9:06 AM

Here's one reason Barack Obama loathes Sean Hannity. On Thursday night's Hannity & Colmes came a new chapter in the Bill Ayers association controversy: An obscure Ayers manifesto from 1974 featured a dedication to "all political prisoners in the U.S." -- including one Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Robert F. Kennedy, a liberal Democratic icon to this day. 

As Hannity indicated during the segment, the book was very difficult to obtain, with even the New York Public Library apparently unable to locate it. Radio Equalizer has the video, and more: 

Given Obama's extensive ties to Ayers, one would imagine they would prove damaging, but the issue so far has not resonated nationally. With this bombshell development, however, that may quickly change.

The American people will want to know why Barack Obama associates so closely with a man who backs Robert F Kennedy's murderer, seeing him as a mere "political prisoner". That's a view so far out into fringe territory that it could give a Berkeley radical pause.

When will Obama finally be forced to explain his association with this sick terrorist?
