Obama Pal Rezko Back in the News

Three degrees of separation: Barack Obama to Tony Rezko, Rezko to Iraqi operator Nadhmi Auchi, Auchi to Saddam Hussein. Daniel Pipes reports:

Barack Obama appears to have personally benefited from funds originating in Saddam Hussein’s regime. It’s a complicated connection, but one that deserves the consideration of Americans voters.

… Summing up: Barack Obama’s house purchase depended on favors from Rezko, flush with a “loan” from Auchi, whose fortune derived in part from Saddam Hussein’s favor.

When seen in the context of Obama’s other dubious connections (Ayers, Davidson, Wright, Khalidi, et al.), this network is all the more alarming.

An interesting read, as Pipes always is. Full story here.
