4. In fairness, I believe interracial relationships were not unusual in Hawaii.

Not necessarily involving an African, though.

Also, her classmates in high school, before she even got to Hawaii, said what a freethinker she was.

Do you think Obama's grandparents sacrificed their daughter that way, so she could give birth to an interracial son who would eventually become the first African American President? Or do you think she was CIA at 18?

About Ayers' possibly being CIA: Maybe that's why we had prosecutorial misconduct in the Ayers case?

Larry Grathwohl, a Federal Bureau of Investigation informant in the Weatherman group from the fall of 1969 to the spring of 1970, stated that "Ayers, along with Bernardine Dohrn, probably had the most authority within the Weatherman"


During this time Ayers and fellow member Bernardine Dohrn married, and the two remained fugitives together, changing identities, jobs and locations.

In 1973, new information came to light about FBI operations targeted against Weather Underground and the New Left, all part of a series of covert and often illegal FBI projects called COINTEL.<19> Due to the illegal tactics of FBI agents involved with the program, government attorneys requested all weapons- and bomb-related charges be dropped against the Weather Underground, including charges against Ayers.<20>

Had a mistrial in the Ellsberg case. Both Ayers and Ellsberg also turned themselves in.

I hope Ayers was not CIA.

I first read his wiki in 2007-08, when I was heavily into defending Obama against both Republicans and fans of others in the Democratic primary field. And, based on his wiki, I kind of liked Ayers. (His wiki then used to say that he had blown up a toilet in the Pentagon in the middle of the night, but now says only bombings, including the Pentagon.)

Ayers said Obama should be tried for war crimes. ... /

Obama lied in several places in his bio. And I knew it in 2008. And I still rationalized it away.

BTW, some are suspicous of Snowden, saying he hasn't revealed anything new. And Ellsberg has been supporting Snowden.

I hope Snowden is what he seems because I have been rooting for him and I can't seem to stop rooting for him.

Sorry. This post is a little scattered.
