Next Up: Obama Planned Kennedy Assasination?

Last week conservative blogs broke a story, reportedly leaked by Hillary Clinton's campaign, that Barak Obama was educated at an Islamic religious school in Indonesia known as a "madrassa." Fox News helped float the story and also did not refute the false claim that Obama was a Muslim. Soon news of Obama's radical Islamic upbringing was all over the internets.

Today CNN debunked the entire story.

But reporting by CNN in Jakarta, Indonesia and Washington, D.C., shows the allegations that Obama attended a madrassa to be false. CNN dispatched Senior International Correspondent John Vause to Jakarta to investigate.

"It's not (an) Islamic school. It's general," a former member of the school said. "There is a lot of Christians, Buddhists, also Confucian. ... So that's a mixed school."

The Obama aide described Fox News' broadcasting of the Insight story "appallingly irresponsible."

Personally, I'm shocked, no, stunned, to hear that ignorance has raised its ugly head in our country. Hold that thought...this just in... Insight Magazine has just learned that Barak Obama planned the 1963 Kennedy assassination...
