    Saddam's Ambassador to al-QaedaBy Jonathan SchanzerWeekly Standard | February 23, 2004 A RECENTLY INTERCEPTED MESSAGE from Iraq-based terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi asking the al Qaeda leadership for reinforcements reignited the debate over al-Qaeda ties with Saddam Hussein's fallen Baath regime. William Safire of the New York Times called the message a "smoking gun," while the University of Michigan's Juan Cole says that Safire "offers not even one document to prove" the Saddam/al-Qaeda nexus. What you are about to read bears directly on that debate. It is based on a recent interview with Abdul Rahman al-Shamari, who served in...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- In response to Donald Trump's plan to hold a campaign rally at the UIC Pavilion on Friday, students, instructors and others have called for the event to be canceled. But University of Illinois - Chicago's chancellor says he has no grounds to deny Trump the use of the arena, as his campaign is paying for it. About 180 UIC faculty and staff sent a letter Monday to the chancellor expressing concern about the rally and as of about 6 p.m. Monday, a petition on had more than 44,000 signatures of people who opposed the event.

    The Campus Caller ^ | 12-2-14 | Eric Owens
    The semi-prestigious University of Illinois system is rapidly becoming famous for its bizarro penchant for hiring terrorists as professors. Last month, the statewide board of trustees cleared the way for the flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign to rehire 1970s-era Symbionese Liberation Army terrorist James Kilgore, a convicted murderer who participated in a 1975 bank robbery during which bank customer Myrna Opsahl was shot and killed. The 42-year-old mother of four bled to death on the bank floor. Now, Chicago businessman Richard Hill has notified officials at the University of Illinois at Chicago that he will rescind a pledge to donate $6.5...

    For months, The Real Sabu, as he called himself on Twitter, boasted, cursed and egged on his followers to take part in computer attacks against private companies and government agencies worldwide. “Don’t give in to these people,” he wrote on Monday, ridiculing “cowards” in the federal government. “Fight back. Stay strong.” It turns out that Sabu had become an informant for federal law enforcement authorities. On Tuesday, in what could be one of the biggest breakthroughs in the government crackdown on a loose, large confederation of politically inspired “hacktivists,” he was unmasked and revealed to have helped the authorities catch...

    When hacktivist Jeremy Hammond was arrested last week in Chicago as a part of a wide government investigation in the online group Anonymous, his mother, Rose Collins, called him a genius without any wisdom. “Again?” she asked when informed by the Chicago Tribune that her son had been arrested for hacking. “I love my son, but he is a genius with no brain. He has a 168 IQ, but he has no wisdom.”  In an attempt to educate the world at-large about the dangers of Anonymous, Rose Collins reached out to Townhall Finance and spoke about Jeremy and Anonymous.

    Maimed firefighter reminds Ayers of bombs' toll Blast victim eager to testify at UIC board hearing on ex-radical prof's honor Comments November 17, 2010 BY NEIL STEINBERG Sun-Times Columnist David Cales saw the bomb that blew off his hand. He was a 26-year-old Chicago firefighter, a pipeman on Engine 8 out of Chinatown, that April day in 1983 when his company answered the call after an explosion at a Near South Side restaurant. The second bomb was in a shopping bag. Cales looked inside, saw the three sticks of dynamite, and instinctively went to throw it off a roof crowded...

    University of Illinois at Chicago faculty leaders are weighing whether to ask the board of trustees to reconsider its controversial decision to deny emeritus status to retired professor William Ayers. It's the latest twist in a showdown 40 years in the making between Ayers, a Vietnam War-era radical who later joined the UIC faculty, and Christopher Kennedy, the university's board chair who was 4 when his father, the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was assassinated. During a passionate speech last week, Kennedy voted against Ayers' appointment, saying he was guided by his conscience and could not support someone who had...

    Bill Ayers Returns Again by: Daniel Allen, March 19, 2009 After the election, Bill Ayers, the left-wing extremist and leader of the Weather Underground, largely faded from the air waves. But he was not forgotten. As evidence against Bill Ayers continues to surface, and witnesses continue to allege that Ayers was involved in murder and attempted murder, some are trying to bring him back into the public spotlight. On March 12th, the non-profit group America’s Survival, Inc., led by the group’s founder and the editor of Accuracy in Media, Cliff Kincaid, held a press conference headlined “Weather Underground Members of...

    I wonder if we're not all looking at the Annenberg trees (Ayers) and missing the forest. Obama controls a huge amount of grant cash in corrupt Chicago. Subsequently strange things happen to his opponents, starting with the incumbent state Senator in his district, ending with Jack Ryan. This would be the Chicago Way.

Is he being "swiftboated," or is this a cover-up? When Obama's association with William Ayers was raised at a Democratic debate this year, Obama replied: "This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood. . . . He's not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis."

    Accusations of a connection between Barack Obama and ex-Weatherman Bill Ayers have recently been gathering steam in conservative journals thanks to Weekly Standard and National Review contributor Stanley Kurtz. For the uninitiated, the Weather Underground was a domestic terrorist group that grew out of the New Left in the '60s and '70s. The group sought to transform America into a communist nation. Obviously, Obama does not seek such a transformation, but relationships with people like Ayers do raise other questions. More to the point is that Mr. Kurtz, along with many other journalists and lawyers, is investigating files that were...

    Even as Barack Obama gave his soaring speech Thursday night, his campaign was playing hardball with its critics. Team Obama has launched an offensive against WGN, the Chicago Tribune's radio station, for interviewing Stanley Kurtz. Mr. Kurtz is a conservative writer who this week forced the University of Illinois to finally open its records on Sen. Obama's association with William Ayers, the unrepentant 1970s Weather Underground terrorist.

    While Barack Obma's wife supposedly moved the masses with an "emotionally powerful" speech, the presidential candidate worked behind the scenes to kill a television ad that highlights his decades-long relationship to a renowned terrorist. Obama has warned television stations across the nation not to continue airing the incriminating commercial linking him to William Ayers, a Vietnam-era radical and fugitive from justice who has proudly admitted planting bombs on the Capitol, Pentagon and other government buildings to protest U.S. policy. Ayers, a member of the terrorist group Weather Underground, has long supported Obama's political career by donating money to his campaigns...

    As we wait for the press and others to go through the thousands of documents related to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge where Barack Obama served as President of the Board and terrorist William Ayers headed up the operations arm, we can say for certain that Obama is a liar of the first magnitude. Barack Obama made it appear in public statements that he barely knew Ayers. Here is what he said at the Philadelphia debate in April about his relationship with the terrorist: This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English in Chicago who...

    Documents released Tuesday by the University of Illinois at Chicago shed some light on Barack Obama’s relationship with William Ayers, a founding member of the 1960s and 1970s radical group the Weather Underground. Obama’s association with Ayers, who now teaches at the university, has become an issue in the Illinois senator’s presidential campaign. The Weather Underground took credit for several nonfatal bombings on targets that included the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, and critics accuse Obama of rubbing elbows with an unabashed 1960s radical. Obama has said that, although he knew Ayers as a professor involved in community outreach efforts...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- The University of Illinois at Chicago has opened records from a nonprofit organization Barack Obama served on that's linked to former '60s radical William Ayers. Journalists and political operatives from both parties are busy poring over a massive number of files released Tuesday morning at UIC's library. Republicans have already been airing TV ads questioning Barack Obama's ties to Ayers, a former 1960's radical. They're going over the files to see if there is any connection between Barack Obama and William Ayers as they worked together on a Chicago charity. Journalists, as well as political operatives from...
