I posted a comment at #176 you may be interested in. It’s probably stuff you both already know, though...
If I’m not mistaken the guy in the picture Siddiqui(sp?) is the one I was referring to in my post - the one who he went with to Pakistan to visit his family during the summer break (or something like that according to Obama’s book).
Sadly, people are going to dismiss a lot of what Manning is saying because he used the name “Al Qaeda” which wasn’t *officially* an entity until 1988. What people are forgetting is that Al Qaeda (like the Muslim Brotherhood) are made up of many smaller groups - some that existed way before the *organization* really got started by Bin Laden. It’s not as if he was doing nothing before 1988 though...
Then again, most of the people I see on this thread that are dismissing Manning’s charges are the same folks who consistently dismiss any and all charges against Obama that are even remotely related to Certifigate... So, it’s not surprising really that they would be here saying these things on this thread... I don’t know if Manning is right or wrong on these particular charges, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being. JMHO.
[Hope you both are doing well. :) ]
I meant post #126, not 176 — sorry about that. The post I refer to is actually directly before the one I sent to the two of you. :)
I hope you are well, too!

I’m not going to dismiss anything until it is proven false. I wouldn’t put anything past the usurper in chief. I know he is hiding things in his past and present. Many have already been exposed. It’s only a matter of time before he is busted.
“I dont know if Manning is right or wrong on these particular charges, but Im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.”
Many of us who yawn at this stuff are not as swayed by conspiratorial speculation as others. When this type of stuff is posted about Sarah Palin or any conservative you care to name, we are rightly dismissive. Post about BHO or WJC and we allow conspiracy on top of innuendo on top of speculation. Facts seem to be the missing ingredient. It’s as interesting as a Charlie Sheen lecture on 9/11.
