Campaign for Obama rejects accusations of Sarah Palin

The campaign of Democratic candidate Barack Obama, candidate for U.S. presidency, rejected the statements of the candidate by the Republican Party vice, Sarah Palin, which he links’ with terrorists who shot our own country. “

The accusation was made on Saturday by referring to the proximity of Obama with Bill Ayers, a founder of the group Weather Underground, which launched a violent campaign against the Vietnam war and was accused by a series of explosions in the U.S. in the 60s, including the Pentagon and the Capitol. At the time, Obama was eight years old.

Obama and Ayers, now a university professor, met several times in 1995 when both worked for a non-profit institution trying to raise funds for a project to improve school and a philanthropic foundation.
According to CNN, which analyzed the project, nothing was found that could suggest anything inappropriate in the work of both.

The spokesman of the campaign of Democrat, Ben Labolt, said that the two did not speak by phone or exchanged emails since Obama went to the Senate in 2005 and their last meeting was accidental and occurred over a year ago in a street on the outskirts of Chicago, where both live.

The accusation of Palin was made in the wake of the announcement of the McCain campaign that intensify the attacks against Obama in the final straight.

– We see America as a great force for good in this world. Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that it is rendered with terrorists who might target our country – Palin said in an event for raising funds, in Colorado.

She cited an article published in the newspaper ‘The New York Times’ on the connection of Obama with Ayers. However, the article concluded saying that “the two men were not close. ‘Neither Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers’ who called’ someone engaged in acts detestáveis there 40 years ago when I was eight. “
