McCain Campaign: The Bill Ayers - Barack Obama Connection

Bill Ayers is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who helped found the Weather Underground. He and his organization were responsible for attacks on government buildings and public officials' families; their actions resulted in deaths and serious injuries to police officers and other innocent American citizens. Ayers eventually teamed up with Senator Barack Obama to work on educating our youth in Chicago.

Now, we are calling on Senator Obama to come clean to the American people about his ties with Bill Ayers, and explain when he first learned about Ayers' attack on the Pentagon and Ayers' other terrorist a ctivities.


Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground got their start in domestic terror by blowing up a police memorial statue -- what they called a "pig" statue -- in Chicago.

The Weather Underground professed a hatred for American law. In 1970, they attempted to kill a New York State Supreme Court Justice and his family with a car-bomb.

In 1995, Senator Obama launched his political career in the living room of Bill Ayers' Chicago home.

Senator Obama published a rave review of Bill Ayers' book about juvenile justice in the Chicago Tribune. The book questioned the necessity of a prison system, compared America to South Africa's apartheid system, and dismissed the idea of the United States as a kind or just country.
The Obama campaign has offered at least seven different stories about Senator Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers, including several different timelines about when Senator Obama learned of Bill Ayers' terrorist past.

Senator Obama said a few days ago he thought Bill Ayers was "rehabilitated." However, on perhaps the most horrific day in our nation's history, September 11, 2001, Ayers said "I don't regret setting bombs... I feel we didn't do enough" to terrorize America.


Senator Obama's explanation of his relationship with Bill Ayers is a matter of trust. If Senator Obama cannot tell the truth about his long-time relationships with Bill Ayers and ACORN, how c an we trust him to be straightforward with the American people about his plan for the economy or our national security? We need a president with strong judgement and firm convictions. America cannot risk electing a president with poor judgment and blind ambition.
