Audacity Of Nope: US prison tells inmate that Obama’s books harmful to national security
Article: AP

First of all, before I post the article… I HAVE to point out that it’s from CANADA. Yeah, a foreign news source. Colour me surprised!

The federal government’s most secure prison has determined that two books written by President Barack Obama contain material “potentially detrimental to national security” and rejected an inmate’s request to read them.

Ahmed Omar Abu Ali is serving a 30-year sentence at the federal supermax prison in Florence, Colorado, for joining al-Qaida and plotting to assassinate then-President George W. Bush. Last year, Abu Ali requested two books written by Obama: “Dreams from My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope.”

But prison officials, citing guidance from the FBI, determined that passages in both books contain information that could damage national security.

A prison spokeswoman referred questions to the FBI, where a spokeswoman was looking into the matter Thursday evening.

The documents detailing the prison’s rejection of Obama’s books are included in court papers for a resentencing hearing scheduled later this month for Abu Ali, a U.S. citizen.

The rejection is just one indication of the harsh conditions imposed on inmates at the supermax prison, according to Abu Ali’s lawyer, Joshua Dratel.

“Imagine an existence controlled by characters created by Louis (sic) Carroll, and that would approach that which Mr. Abu Ali faces each day for the duration of his sentence,” Dratel wrote.

Abu Ali requested the books in August, before Obama was elected. In a short, handwritten note on a prison complaint form, Abu Ali argues that the two rejections “violate my 1st amend. rights” – referring to the part of the U.S. Constitution that promises free speech among other rights.

The rejections, as well as other restrictions on family visits, prompted a hunger strike by Abu Ali that has since ended, Dratel wrote.

Prison officials cite specific pages – but not specific passages – in the books that they deem objectionable. They include one page in Obama’s 1995 book, “Dreams from My Father,” and 22 separate pages in his policy-oriented 2006 book, “The Audacity of Hope.” It was not immediately obvious what passages might have been deemed problematic, though nearly half of the pages cited are in a chapter devoted to foreign affairs.

Supermax inmates, including convicted Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski, are housed under the most severe restrictions in the federal prison system. Inmates typically are kept in their cells in solitary confinement 22 or 23 hours a day.

Abu Ali will be resentenced July 27, following an appellate court ruling that U.S. District Judge Gerald Bruce Lee improperly deviated from sentencing guidelines that recommended a term of life in prison.

Come on. I wouldn’t be surprised if BHussein got wind of this problem and decided to pay his dear terrorist brother, Abu Ali a visit… toting autographed copies of each book and a personal pardon with a free vacation lifestyle in Bermuda with the rest of his brothers. All poor little Abu Ali wanted to DO was commit acts of terror with al-Qaeda and assassinate an American President. Oh my. Let him have his rights and his books.

Oh, and Abu Ali – I can save you the trouble of reading that nonsense called “Dreams From My Father”. Think of this as … cliff notes… DangerB style… “Wah wah wah. I’m black. My dad died but I never knew him. America sucks. Wah wah. My mom and grandparents are white. Drugs. Whine whine whine. Me me me. I’m so black. My mom was white. I live in Chicago. Did I mention I’m black? Curse whitey.” Yeah. It’s a pretty dull read, for sure.

    I guess he can read fiction, such as the koran. F obama and his books. they along with the Koran are worth nothing more than expensive toilet paper, IMO.

      LMAO. The Koran is one of the best selling fiction books out there. Right behind Harry Potter!

      I always enjoy your comments, Bob!

    To the ingnorant world who has a problem with Barack Obama can go to hell. The only reason people don’t like him is beacuse he’s black, so what I rather have is a black president who gives a Sh!t about his people than a white one who doesn’t… Barack’s book is compelling, and ingnorant people can learn alot from him, like how to look past color and look for morals, priciple the things that really count. Because no matter what race we are God looks at our hearts, so get off your high horse racist people you can all go to hell like everyone else.

      Let me help you out, kiddo.

      Barack Hussein Obama is mulatto. He’s bi-racial. He’s half white and he’s half black – so that right there blows your ignorant racist theory out of the water. I would rather have a black president that is competent over a mulatto shitstain that’s ruining our country – starting with the economy, buying out private companies, regulating medicare, and who knows what else this egocentric bi-racial, bi-sexual, cokehead has up his sleeve. So, yes. Oh, and your half-black president doesn’t give a shit about America. He gives a shit about himself. His Muslim brothers. He plays the race card in such a way that most of his supporters don’t give two turds HOW awful the outcome from his Marxist/Hitler-esque moves turn out. How come all of his decisions have had a negative outcome? How come the forced “stimulus” didn’t work? How come unemployment is peaking at 10%? How come unemployment shot up WAY past the 8% he said his “stimulus” would avoid? How come he lied about his faith throughout the campaign – but when he went to meet with his Muslim brothers, his true beliefs came out?

      I don’t care if he’s half-black. He could be all black and it wouldn’t matter. However, let me educate you. WE HATE HIS POLICIES, okay? He wants everyone in America to live like section 8 street rats who are slaves to the government. Well sorry, kiddo. I’m a free citizen. I have free will and God given rights that some mulatto mutt USURPER can NOT take away from me. I do not belong to the government and I will not accept the damage he’s doing.

      How’s this for you: To the ignorant masses that still want to blame George W. Bush for the tragic state of our economy – six months into Barack Hussein Obama’s reign of terror – you can eat a fat bag of shit.

      How about YOU look past colour, you racist sack of shit, and open your eyes and see the damage that’s happening around you?
      Oh, but he’s “black” (see also: slightly brown – half-black, not white, not fully black, mulatto)

      Historic my ass. Historic in a HITLER kind of way.

      Now go get your food stamps and pray to your Mulatto Messiah in chief.

      Have a wonderful day, queerbait!

      P.S. – Come back and comment when you can type out complete and coherent sentences. If you’re able to pass 7th grade English – people might take you a little more seriously. 😉 Nice try, kiddo.

    If I may dismount from my high horse for a moment…I will tell “WHY” a little bit about God.
    God is Love, but love has many enemies.
    God hates communism, and your new god HUSSEIN is attempting to turn our country (which by the way is owned and operated by God) into a communist country. The first chapter of Proverbs will clear that up for you.
    Know what else God hates? Infanticide. Your new god HUSSEIN just loves killing babies. Its a fact, he just cannot kill him enough babies. God hates that…the Ten Commandments states that pretty clearly.
    Hussein the Muslim loves him some muslims..he has arab blood…ya know, God hates it when people worship anything or anybody except HIM.
    I could go on and on because HUSSEIN is a wicked individual, but I am tired of typing, but please don’t come here calling people racist and saying God supports HUSSEIN’s policies, because He does not.PLUS HUSSEIN is the biggest racist I have ever seen.
    “WHY”…get to know God before you throw his name around in an attempt to justify your evil fleshly lusts.Dork.

      Well said, Fishleg!

      Some people are just all about this Mulatto shitstain. Heaven forbid you point out the fact that he’s bi-racial, too. They want their BLACK president and they want it NOW! Even if he’s not… black… or… president.

      Ignorant fools. I laugh at them. Just wait until they get their food stamp allowance cut back. Just wait until those hefty government cheques aren’t quite as “beefy” as they were before. THEN they’ll see.
