To my mind, Obama's other friend, Bill Ayers, is more disreputable than Jeremiah Wright. He's not just a socialist, not just a radical, he's a terrorist. Maybe an inactive terrorist, but still, he hasn't changed from the bomber he was in the sixties:
"We did many things that were wrong; I have a lot of regrets for many of the things that happened," he said. Does he regret siding with a brutal communist regime against America? "Certainly, the death of the three, my girlfriend and two other close, close friends, was a disaster." In other words, he regrets that his friends accidentally died while building a bomb, not that they were building a bomb in the first place.The book signing this article was about just happened to be scheduled the week after 9-11-2001. What timing. Ayers claim that they never engaged in terrorism was prompted by the 9-11 events, I'm sure. And maybe in his mind it wasn't terrorism. Me, I call planting bombs terrorism.
Mr. Ayers continues: "Certainly flirting with the idea of terrorism was off the tracks and a mistake. The fact that we never executed that flirtation is important and significant and I think conveniently forgotten, but we never did." In fact, Mr. Ayers and his cohorts did set off a bomb at the Pentagon. In his book, he writes: "It turns out that we blew up a bathroom and, quite by accident, water plunged below and knocked out their computers for a time, disrupting the air war and sending me into deepening shades of delight." In those four little words, "disrupting the air war," there is the dark prospect of American soldiers in jeopardy.
