Obama + Auchi = Ouchi!
I ripped off this post's title from a comment somebody had left on my comments page.
Ouchhhh! It turns out that Barack and Michelle Obama had attended a dinner in honor of Nadhmi Auchi on April 3, 2004 at Antoine Rezko's house, according to a witness testimony given today during the Rezko trial.
Obama had said that he doesn't remember meeting Auchi. I think that Obama either suffers from ADD or has sustained significant damage to his memory cells from all that stuff he did back in the day. How can one forget a dinner in 'honor' of a very controversial man like Auchi? How can one miss what one's reverend had been saying for a couple of decades? How can one not catch a whiff of the bucket-loads of murkiness surrounding a 17 year long friendship with Rezko?
Time to re-visit this post: Obama's Saddam Connection?
UPDATE: it was Rezko's defense lawyer who placed Obama at this dinner for Auchi. The witness was brought in by the prosecutor to testify against Rezko. So this may be some sort of entrapment. Let's wait and see what Obama will have to say in response. I wonder what the defense team is up to?
UPDATE, April 15, 2008: The Chicago Sun-Times today has two more sources confirming that Obama was at this dinner.
