President Obama’s Favorite Bombers, Part 2 [OPINION]
The most disappointing aspect of President Barack Obama is his sympathy for bombers who attack Americans. He started and ended his elected career with bombers.
As I wrote in a previous column, President Obama sent millions of dollars to the criminal regime that seized control of Iran. Those some Iranians are responsible for the deaths of thousands of American warriors who volunteered to defend America and served under Obama in his role as commander-in-chief of our armed forces. Among those killed were several men from the Greater New Bedford area.
But giving material support to the bombers of Iran wasn't the first or last time Obama sided with bombers. He bookended his career in electoral politics with public displays of affection for violent bombers who blew up American targets to achieve their twisted goals.
The Weather Underground was a domestic terrorist organization. The Weathermen were aligned with the international Communist revolution and received material support from at least the Communist Cuban government. The members of this group were under the leadership of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn as they rioted and bombed for years.
When Obama decided to run for office for the first time, he had a fundraiser at the home of Ayers and Dohrn. He had a choice and he made a choice. He started out with the bombers.
We know what he did to support the bombers in Iran.
On his last days in office as the President of the United States of America, he again embraced the bomber class.
President Obama released Oscar Lopez of the FALN from federal prison. Lopez, a member of the Cuban Communist-Weathermen orbit was a bomb builder and a bomb delivery boy. He killed Americans. Obama freed him. I interviewed Joe Connor, one of the children of the victims of Lopez. Obama never did.
Details matter. Sadly most of Obama's supporters probably have no idea he has such affinity for the political bombers – at least, I hope they don't. Ignorance is bliss.
