New Photo Of Obama With Louis Farrakhan | The Daily Caller

A new photo has emerged that shows former President Barack Obama posing with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the black nationalist hate group Nation of Islam.

The photo shows then Democratic Illinois Sen. Barack Obama smiling with Farrakhan at aCongressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005. Farrakhan is known for embracing radically anti-Semitic and anti-white views, as even the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center has acknowledged.

Journalist Askia Muhammed said he took the photo but decided to suppress its publication in order to protect Obamas presidential ambitions. Now that Obamas political career is over, Muhammad is going public with the picture and publishing it in a new book called The Autobiography of Charles 67X.

The photo was first publishedlast week by the Trice Edney News Wire, a provocative, empowering, unapologetically Black wire news service that interviewed Muhammad. The veteran journalist told the news service that hegave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy to protect Obama.

But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover, he said, referencing keeping the photo under wraps to protect Obamas career. It absolutely would have made a difference.

Muhammad is a veteran journalist who has won awards from theNational Association of Black Journalists. (RELATED:Farrakhan Tells Black Soldiers To Desert For The Day Of Judgment For Whites)

Obamas ties to Farrakhan became an issue during the 2008 campaign, after Hillary Clinton slammed Obama for being slow to disavow the hate group leaders endorsement.

I obviously cant censor him, but it is not support that I sought, Obama said at the time, according to CNN. And were not doing anything, I assure you, formally or informally with Minister Farrakhan. Obama added: I cant say to somebody that he cant say that he thinks Im a good guy.

Pushed by Clinton, Obama finally denounced Farrakhan, saying thatif the word reject Senator Clinton feels is stronger than the word denounce, then Im happy to concede the point, and I would reject and denounce.

The new photo shows Obama was closer to Farrakhan than he let on.
