Bombshell Photo Of Smiling Obama, Anti-Semitic Leader SURFACES

A journalist admitted last week to keeping a picture he took of then-Sen. Barack Obama and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in 2005 under wraps for fear of hurting the former's political career.

Askia Muhammad took the photo of Obama and the controversial activist while the future president met with the Congressional Black Caucus. Muhammad told Talking Points Memo that a CBC staffer contacted him in a "panic" at the time over what the photo could do to Obama's political ambitions.

...

Asked if he felt the picture would have made a difference in Obama's 2008 run for the presidency, Muhammad said, "It absolutely would have made a difference."

...

Obama's past friendly relationships with radical figures like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers dogged him during the 2008 campaign. Farrakhan has made anti-Semitic, anti-white and anti-gay statements during his career, and a published photo of the two smiling together likely would have stirred more controversy around his candidacy.
