This is coolbert:
Consider this from the Chicago Tribune today:
"NATION & WORLD"
"Obama books called threat"
"The federal government's most secure prison has determined that two books written by President Barack Obama contain material 'potentially detrimental to national security' and rejected an inmate's request to read them."
This villain, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali [the inmate] is serving a 30-year sentence . . . for joining Al Qaeda and plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush.
These two books written by Obama are: "Dreams From My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope."
"prison officials, citing guidance from the FBI, determined that passages in both books contain information that could damage national security."
And what would those dangerous passages consist of? What is so dangerous about what something the President has written a number of years ago now that is classified as information the revelation of which to a prison inmate "could damage national security"?
My first inclination to to suggest that familial relationships, however tenuous and weak, are at question here. Persons related to Obama and living in Kenya in particular and identified in the two books, and Muslims at that, might very well be subject to attack or intimidation or kidnapping. Obama has half-brothers and half-sisters living all over the world, for that matter!
All with the purpose of causing grievous hurt to Obama?
You might not be interested in war, but war can become interested in you!
This is what is at stake here?
