See Breitbart video below. I guess this didn’t work out so well.

Then-Senator Barack Obama makes the case for an Obama Presidency on November 21, 2007 by saying he is uniquely qualified to bring stability to America’s relationships in the Muslim world because he lived in an Islamic country during his youth and his half-sister is Muslim.

Ummm….

Hundreds of Afghan protesters took to the streets on Friday, setting fire to an effigy of US President Barack Obama and demanding the death of a film-maker who they say insulted the Prophet Mohammed.The demonstration in Nangarhar province, which borders Kabul to the west and Pakistan to the east, saw clerics in the Shinwari tribe call for a $100,000 bounty on the head of the producer of the film, “Innocence of Muslims”.

    Dan, you can;t tell that that is an image of Obama in that picture. I have looked and cannot find clear shot of an image of Obama being burned.
    Have you?

    I’m basing it on the caption from the photographer who was there. That caption is directly from the linked media source. The media claims it was an Obama effigy. I’ve no reason to question them on the fact.
