Obama has questions to answer about terrorists

The conservative news media is alive with a worthy story about Sen. Barack Obama and his past associations with people of terrorist ties.

The latest is about praise Obama lavished on the spokesperson for the PLO just five years ago at a dinner honoring the man. On the dais of praisers were domestic terrorists William Ayers and his wife, who now are educators in Chicago.

The Los Angeles Times wrote about the dinner five years ago. And it has a video of Obama praising the PLO representative, which has previously been designated a terrorist organization.

What does all this have to do with what troubles this nation?

Honesty. Integrity. Judgment. These are all qualities missing from American society today on Wall Street and in Washington, D.C.

Obama has claimed little to no contact with Ayers or any people with terrorist ties. But the emerging record says otherwise. Obama has not held an official press conference in a month. He appears to not want to add anything further to the record lest he mispresents the truth.

Another weird twist to this situation involves the LA Times. It refuses to release the video of the dinner. Why? Let the video be part of the public record for the people to see.

Obama needs to speak to this part of his record. It matters and so does The Times' need to look unbiased on its news pages toward the candidate.
