It is now undeniable: Barack Obama is a radical. (Addendum: Perhaps a better way to phrase that would be: The organization that gave Obama his start in political life was one with a distinctly radical agenda. This could be an indication of where his instinctive sympathies lie.) (Addendum 2: Way too many addenda lately. I really ought to start paying better attention.)
Researcher Stanley Kurtz has been pursuing Obama's links to SDS bomber and unreformed radical William Ayers for many months. He has finally gained access to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) archives in the Daley Library and the findings are absolutely conclusive. Despite Obama's denials, he and Ayers cooperated closely in pursuing an unmistakably radical educational agenda in Chicago.
The Daley archives show that Mr. Obama and Mr. Ayers worked as a team to advance the CAC agenda…The CAC's agenda flowed from Mr. Ayers's educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism.
