Obama's Silence

Tom Hayden

Back when Barack Obama was alongshot candidate in the Iowa primary, he was morally candid, sayingon March 11, 2007, that "nobody is suffering more than the Palestinianpeople." It was one month after the announcement of Obama's campaign,and the last time he would make such a statement. Three days later, atthe AIPAC conference in Washington DC, he was hammered as inexperiencedby the New York Times reporter, Patrick Healy, on March 14.
