Most people only know him as a terrorist. If fact, it would be more accurate to say Ayres was a Vietnam War protester.
IN PROTEST OF THE VIETNAM WAR : (WHEN OBAMA WAS 8-11 YEARS OLD)
1. In 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb at a statue, dedicated to riot police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Riot confrontation between labor supporters and the police. The blast broke almost 100 windows and blew pieces of the statue onto the nearby Kennedy Expressway.
2. Ayers participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970.
3. The United States Capitol building in 1971.
4. And The Pentagon in 1972.
No one was killed or injured because of these bombs but plenty of people ware killed because Lyndon Johnson fabricated the Tonkin Gulf Resolution as a pretext for a wider war in Vietnam.
I CONDEMN THOSE ACTS AND SO HAS OBAMA. EVEN IF AYRES’ MOTIVES WERE HIGHER THAN THOSE OF LYNDON JOHNSON, AND CAUSED INFINITELY LESS DAMAGE AND NO DEATHS, HE WAS NO MAHATMA GHANDI BUT NEITHER WAS HE OSAMA BIN LADEN.
HE WAS UNDERGROUND 1970-1980
1984 Masters degree at Columbia Teacher’s College 1987 Doctorate from Columbia Teacher’s College
Obama met Ayres in 1995
Ayres is currently a Distinquish Professor at The University of Illinois at Chicago.
I claim that Obama had negligible relationship with Ayres unlike the extremely close relationships of McCain with Charles Keating (Of Keating Five fame) and Randall Scheunemann who got rich by pushing the Iraq war and now is stirring up trouble with the USA and his very recent client the Republic of Georgia.
