Fox News host Bill O’Reilly obtained and publicized new pictures of President Barack Obama attending a Muslim wedding in an effort to prove that Obama had “deep emotional ties to Islam.”
On Wednesday night’s The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly’s “Talking Points Memo” argued that “Barack Obama’s emotional attachment to the Muslim world has hurt the USA.” Along those lines, O’Reilly unveiled hitherto unreleased images of Obama wearing traditional garb while attending his brother Malik Obama‘s wedding.
“Details on the ceremony, the exact location, and whether the reports that Barack Obama was the best man are difficult to verify at this point,” O’Reilly reported. “What we can tell you with certainty is that Barack Obama has deep emotional ties to Islam.”
The pictures themselves are new, but Obama’s relatives have released other images of him wearing that particular garb at the wedding. Malik previously provided the Associated Press with his own copy of pictures of Barack at his wedding.
Conspiracy theorists have long claimed that Obama is a secret Muslim, citing a similar photo of Obama in traditional Kenyan garb that was published by The Drudge Report in 2008. That photo was reportedly provided to the conservative muckraker by staffers of Obama’s primary opponent Hillary Clinton.
