I was amazed when I heard that Obama's prayer at the Western Wall was intercepted by a newspaper and published. The act seemed on many levels wrong, never mind that the prayer seemed grammatically incorrect, presumptuous for my taste, and that Obama wasn't even sure at a press conference if it was his, this was a spiritual matter that the public had no right to have access to it. However, now come the reports that it was the Obama campaign that negotiated/orchestrated the whole thing. Basically pulling off looking like a humble victim.
Obama: not a typical politician, more wily than most.
Update: "Obama's note was published in Maariv and other international publications following his authorization to make the content of the note public. Obama submitted a copy of the note to media outlets when he left his hotel in Jerusalem."
By the way why hasn't anyone commented on how poorly the note is worded and Obama allowing himself to be the "instrument of G-d," isn't that even more evil than G.W. invoking the Crusades?
Via Alarming News, Allah claims it's a smear campaign and has some solid reasoning/evidence behind him.
