Barack Obama has a pastor who had the courage to point out that the arrogance of US foreign policy was related to the desire of Arab extremists to attack America.
The Reverend Jeremiah Wright declaimed in a sermon: "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more people than the thousands in NY and the Pentagon."
Opponents of Sen. Obama have been challenging him to denounce his pastor for these comments and the Black and sometimes blind senator from Illinois, at first, caved in.
"The USA has never used nuclear weapons against Japanese cities that were not even military targets. This is clearly some kind of anti-American propaganda!" Obama declared at a campaign stop at Los Alamos, New Mexico.
But as the days wore on, Obama came to realize that the religious leader who had baptized him and married him and his wife and baptized his children was Wright. The USA has had an extremely arrogant foreign policy and we have sought to deny the Arab people self-determination and our alliance with Israel has been a further refusal to allow the Arab people to decide their own futures. Obama realized that the western world's thirst for oil has caused it to rob the native people of the Middle East of their natural resources.
That realization caused Barack Hussein Obama to apologize to his pastor and spiritual leader and to declare: "Maybe I am Muslim!"
