Just a small note to clarify: Bernadette Dohrn was a revolutionary activist in support of Irish Independence from British occupation of Northern Ireland. To skew in more contemporary American political terms, she would have been labeled either as an "insurgent" or a "freedom fighter". Since the US supports the UK, Dohrn was simply labeled as a criminal. While I don't condone her actions - in fact find them heinous, I also despise revisionist history or any oped pieces that leave out historical context. As for Ayers, again, you need to look at the era - the 60s. Doesn't excuse only explains. Frankly the Ayers blather is simply that - blather. The Weatherman were against the Establishment and the Military Industrial Complex... to even try to draw a comparison against the ingrained movement for the preservation of white supremacy to the radical political movements of the 60s simply highlights the writer's inability to cogently discern between historical fact and hysterical rhetoric.

It is strange that the senator "hangs out" for years with people (Ayers, Wright, et al.) with anti-American views, but tells us that they do wonderful things and wants us to believe that he doesn't share their views and none of those views have "clinged" to him. The mainstream media should have brought out these questionable associations when the senator first announced for President. The Democratic primary results would have been different.
