I've been doing some digging and it appears that these two people are not only associated with President-Elect Obama, but also to each other. Take this into account:
And he’s practically the best friend of Bill Ayers. Bill Ayers features Khalidi in some of his books about how to politicize the teaching for students. So actually, the more you look into it, the more you see that this is not just people running into each other.
This comes after the flap about the Khalidi tape. One thing that has to be remembered is that all of these folks have known each other and appear to share, at least partly, in radical politics. Obama's own relationship with people like Ayers has also been researched:
And when he was at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, he was surrounded by people who knew Bill Ayers, and who frankly idolized Bill Ayers because of Ayers’ radicalism, because Ayers was the leader of a school of thought in education theory that proudly believed in politicizing the classroom. It’s hard to believe that Obama could have hung out with all these people in Hyde Park and at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, and who knew that he worked where Ayers worked, and not have somehow heard what was going on.
We need to be very careful, as it seems like radical politics coalesced around Barack Obama. Now that he will be President, it remains to be seen how these policies will be implemented.
