KSFO’s Rodgers falsely claimed Obama “admits in one of his own books” that he would “stand with the Muslims” against “the Western world”

Summary: KSFO’s Lee Rodgers falsely claimed Sen. Barack Obama “admits in one of his own books” that “in case of a confrontation between the Western world and the Islamic world, he will stand with the Muslims.” Rodgers’ assertion recalls a similar allegation in a chain email that has been previously debunked. As FactCheck.org documented, while discussing “my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans” in The Audacity of Hope, Obama wrote: “[T]hey need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
