By now, most informed Americans think they know all about Sen. Barack Obama's former religious adviser, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. He's supposed to be an anti-American, anti-white, political extremist and so on. Obama has distanced himself from Wright after he was attacked by the right wing for associating with his one-time minister and old friend — the man who allegedly defined the 9/11 terror attack as "American's chickens coming home to roost."
Actually what Wright said about 9/11 from the pulpit had an entirely different meaning than that ascribed to him by the reactionary commentators. Not only that, but many progressive Americans will find themselves in agreement with a lot of what he said.
Now's your chance to find out. Here is how to obtain a brief article about Wright's 9/11 sermon and a video of the entire several minute talk that has been deliberately distorted by the right wing media — courtesy of the Huffington Post via AlterNet: http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/#80452
