The Mystery Candidate (Obama) and his Pals

Stanley Kurtz, writing for NRO, reports more of his finds in the Daley Library holdings of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), including more evidence that Obama has not been forthright in explaining why he--with no background for the position--was picked to head the Board of the CAC

[quote] it seems clear that weʼre not being told the whole truth about who chose Obama to lead the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. In particular, the Obama campaignʼs claim that Deborah Leff and Patricia Graham may have put forward Obamaʼs nomination can no longer be taken as the last word on the subject. The Rolling letter strongly suggests that Obama and his allies are not being fully forthcoming on this issue, quite possibly in an attempt to disguise the fact the Bill Ayers had a substantial role in elevating Barack Obama to the chairmanship of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. More generally, in the immediate wake of my attempt to gain access to the CAC records, Rolling appears to have been maneuvering, both to block my access, and to make sure that the full story of who chose Obama as CAC head would not come out.

As it becomes obvious that there is a certain stench  about the CAC and Obama's role in it, the Obama camp and its supporters keep trying to denigrate the story's significance. It is significant because (a) Obama has left out this significant part of his life--his only executive experience--from both of his self-serving autobiographies ;(b) He has lied about his relationship to the head of its operating arm, Bill Ayers, unrepentant domestic terrorist;(c) It is the only evidence we have of his real educational agenda--using the public schools to advance a far left educational program, substituing real educations for the poor with leftist orientation and organizational skills.
