Gaffney Tries to Defend His "Obama's a Secret Muslim" Claims

Yesterday, Frank Gaffney penned an op-ed for the Washington Times in which he claimed that "Barack Hussein Obama would have to be considered America's first Muslim president" and alleged that "the man now happy to have his Islamic-rooted middle name featured prominently has engaged in the most consequential bait-and-switch since Adolf Hitler duped Neville Chamberlain over Czechoslovakia at Munich. "

I didn't write about it because it was amply covered by lots of other bloggers and, frankly, I couldn't really figure out what Ganney's point was supposed to be.

Alan Colmes invited Gaffney onto his program yesterday to defend his claims ... and I have to say, I still don't have any idea what Gaffney is talking about. 

Gaffney insists that Obama has embraced "an agenda that is most closely associated with radical elements of Islam" and that this move will be "as consequential for this country as what Hitler did in triggering World War II." He goes on to claim that Obama is aligning himself with radical Islam and its anti-American agenda and that nobody knows if Obama really is a Muslim, because after he "he's talking like one, and perhaps believing like one ... When [Obama] apparently relegates Jesus Christ to the category of dead prohpets using the code that Muslims use, that's worrying because it suggests that he isn't the Christian he claims to be."

Give it a listen ... maybe you'll have better luck understanding Gaffney's fears and allegations than I did.
