Aaron Klein Desperate Obama Smear Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In a June 10 WorldNetDaily article, Aaron Klein trots out his terrorist buddies once again for a little Obama-smearing, giving them voice to claim that a photo of President Obama with his feet up on a desk while allegedly talking to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the phone was insulting to Israelis because showing the soles of one's shoes is considered an insult in the Arab world.

But Klein also writes that "flashing shoe soles is not usually viewed as an insult in Judaism." If Israelis don't generally consider it an insult, why does it matter if Israel's enemies do?

This just demonstrates once again how desperate Klein is to do everything possible to smear Obama-- and why he has so little credibility as a journalist as a result.

There's also the question -- as there was with the endorsement of Obama's candidacy by a Hamas official in an interview with Klein -- whether the terrorists Klein interviewed were knowingly taking part in advancing Klein's anti-Obama agenda.
