"Osama bin Laden" Donates to Barack Obama

This isn't evidence that Obama supports al Qaeda. This is just more evidence that the Obama campaign is intentionally running a sloppy internet fundraising effort so that they can collect illegal contributions from overseas.

I think, though, that the limits of plausible deniability were stretched to the breaking point months ago when the campaign was first notified about the flaw in their system yet did nothing. The Romney campaign, on the other hand, uses industry standard verification for donors and therefore is much less susceptible to this sort of fraud.

I hate to link it, but I will make the rare exception in this case since I like Aaron Klein despite his affiliation with ... WND:

Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.

The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”

“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.
