Bill Ayers shared an office with Barack Obama for three years in the 1990’s at 115 South Sangamon Street in Chicago. The former Weather Underground leader also served on Boards with Obama. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Ayers referred to Bowe Bergdahl as ‘heroic’ if he was a deserter as has been alleged. Bergdahl, who is also said to have converted to Islam according to documents obtained by Fox News.
This is certainly not the first time Ayers has shown allegiance with Islam. Back in 2010, he was part of the Free Gaza Movement that was involved in the infamous Gaza Flotilla.
In the interview with Kelly, the topic of murdered policeman Brian McDonnell came up. He was a young San Francisco officer who was killed in 1970 when a bomb filled with staples detonated outside the station window. According to the now deceased Larry Grathwohl, who infiltrated the Weathermen in 1969-70, Ayers told him that Bernadine Dohrn planted the bomb. Ayers further accused Grathwohl of lying and saying that he was never a member of the Weathermen. In the interview, Ayers said Grathwohl was only a member of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and called Grathwohl a liar.
That is the lie. Grathwohl was arrested in a sting operation in 1970 after having spent several months undercover for the FBI inside the Weathermen.
In his book, Bringing Down America, Grathwohl said the FBI introduced him to an Arab guerrilla named Ali Baba. Grathwohl explained that Baba wanted to know as much about the Weathermen as Grathwohl could tell him but he was never able to determine the purpose of the introduction. After the Greenwich village bombing, also discussed in the interview with Kelly, the J. Edgar Hoover wanted a bust and Grathwohl helped them do it.
Unfortunately, had they been more patient, they could have gotten much bigger fish.
I knew Larry Grathwohl. We became friends and I believe him, not Ayers.
