Looking Into Obama's Past

Media Circus has an interesting blog (h/t Bob Robbins) entitled Looking into “The One’s” Past; Where did Obama get his money?. The author wonders where Senator Obama received financing for his undergraduate and graduate education at various private schools. She also wonders about a series of close Obama confidants: Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, Obama's Pakistani roommates at Columbia; Tony Rezko, who has been convicted of fraud and was named "entrepreneur of the decade" by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association; Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born billionaire; and Valerie Jarrett, born in Shiraz, Iran.

Media Circus notes that:

"On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley adviser to Obama was "sacked" after the press found out he was having regular contacts with "Hamas ", which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will "Take care of things"."
