Every time I hear another story about the people Obama associated with over the years, the more it ticks me off that the MSM refused to report on it before he was elected President of the United States. And the little bit they did report on was blown off as nothing to be worried about. Furthermore, it is sickening that there were such blind Americans in our country who refused to listen to or believe those who did expose Obama and his friends and then proceeded to place him in the highest office in the land. I'm not talking about the hard-core leftists who are made from the same cloth as Obama. I'm talking about the so-called moderates and independents...those of the "open mind" who somehow felt they had to be a part of "making history". I get more upset about this every day and stories like this one only add fuel to the fire.
Gateway Pundit reports:
Barack Obama’s close family friends, terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and top campaign bundler Jodie Evans from Code Pink are top activists with the Gaza flotilla group that attacked the IDF today.

Klein: Ayers, Dohrn top activists in Gaza flotilla group

Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Gaza, 12/31/09
Aaron Klein, Jerusalem bureau chief for World Net Daily, reports from New York:
The group behind the Gaza flotilla that engaged in deadly clashes with Israeli commandoes today counts among its top activists Weather Underground terrorist founders William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of the radical activist organization Code Pink.
Ayers and Dohrn were close associates for years with President Obama, while Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama’s presidential campaign.
Earlier today, Israeli navy commandos raided the six-ship flotilla, encountering heavy resistance and live fire from the activists. Nine activists were killed and dozens of others were reportedly injured, as were several of the Israeli commandoes.
In the next part of the article, you can read where Ali Abunimah (mentioned above) met and spoke with Barack Obama about Jewish/Arab relations:
Abunimah traveled in some of the same political circles as Obama in the 1990s. Abunimah previously described meeting with Obama at a fundraiser at the home of Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, reportedly a former PLO activist. Khalidi was also a close associate of Obama.
“[Obama] came with his wife. That’s where I had a chance to really talk to him,” Abunimah recalled. “It was an intimate setting. He convinced me he was very aware of the issues [and] critical of U.S. bias toward Israel and lack of sensitivity to Arabs. … He was very supportive of U.S. pressure on Israel.
According to quotes obtained by Gulf News, Abunimah recalled a 2004 meeting in a Chicago neighborhood while Obama was running for his Senate seat. Abunimah quoted Obama telling him “warmly” he was sorry that “I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race.”
“I’m hoping when things calm down, I can be more up front,” Abunimah reportedly quoted the senator as saying.
It will be interesting to see if President Obama sides with Israel on this issue or berates them for protecting themselves. According to JTA.org:
Obama and Netanyahu spoke by telephone and agreed to set up a meeting at a later date, according to the Prime Minister's Office.
In Washington, the White House released a statement Monday on the incident.
"The United States deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained, and is currently working to understand the circumstances surrounding this tragedy," the statement said.
