The Photo That Never Saw The Light of Day … Barack Obama With Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan In 2005
THE MEDIA HAS BEEN PROTECTING OBAMA SINCE THE BEGINNING, IMAGINE IF THIS PICTURE WAS AVAILABLE IN 2006 …
From TPM, a journalist just came forward after waiting over 10 years to say he will nos publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Hussein Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting. See picture HERE. The journalist did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future. But if it was a damning photo of a Republican presidential candidate or tape, the media would have been all too willing to make such a pic available to hard a candidate. How would the have played in the 2008 presidential election had this picture actually been made to the public? Isn’t it quite something that such damning photo’s are buried, yet we have 30 year old year books come out of the wood works when it comes to GOP candidates.
A smiling Obama and Farrakhan, don’t they look so chummy?
A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.
The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”
“But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover,” Muhammad said.
Asked whether he thought the photo’s release would have affected Obama’s presidential campaign, Muhammad said, “I insist. It absolutely would have made a difference.”
It makes one wonder what else was covered up, doesn’t it?
