Remember that Malik Obama interview? He never said that. There's audio.

    It turns out that two-graf "Muslim background" blurb in the Jerusalem Post was half wrong: Yes, Israeli Army Radio interviewed Barack Obama's half-brother. No, said half-brother never actually said what Deeper_Background's headline claimed he said. Shockhorror.

    Malik Obama does refer to his own Muslim background, which might explain how the J-Post screwed the pooch.

    Listen here (4:39 raw interview audio MP3).

    Doesn't matter. The Right Wingers were able to make hay with it and will continue to do so.

    Truth doesn't play a role in smear campaigns.
