Obama Fights Back Against Corsi Smears
Barack Obama’s campaign will not sit idly by while people with questionable credibility smear him. Most notably in their sights is Jerome Corsi’s book, which is getting some traction and will be number one on the New York Times best-seller list this weekend (although it should be in the fiction, not non-fiction category).
Politico runs down some of Corsi’s wild theories:
- Hillary Clinton is a lesbian
- Muslims worship Satan
- President Bush has worked to eliminate borders with Mexico and Canada
- John Kerry is a Communist
- Oil is a natural resource that generates naturally
But what should be most damning, especially to conservatives who embrace him for his anti-Obamaism, is his agreement with the 9/11 so-called “Truthers” that the government lied to us about 9/11. Quoting “Truther” Steven Jones, Corsi tells radio host Alex Jones:
“The fire, from jet fuel, does not burn hot enough to produce the physical evidence that he’s produced,” Mr. Corsi said. “So when you’ve got science that the hypothesis doesn’t explain-evidence-then the hypothesis doesn’t stand anymore. It doesn’t mean there’s a new hypothesis you’ve validated. It just means the government’s explanation of the jet fuel fire is not a sufficient explanation to explain the evidence of these spheres-these microscopic spheres-that Steven Jones has proved existed within the W.T.C. dust.”
