  • Photographer Askia Muhammad did not make public a 2005  photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.
  • He was also  afraid that someone might “break into his apartment” looking for it, like “that Watergate crap.”
  • Muhammad said a “staff member” for the Congressional Black Caucus contacted him “sort of in a panic” after he took the photo at a caucus meeting in 2005.
  • “I sort of understood what was going on”. Muhammad said he gave away “the disk” from his camera but “copied the photograph from that day onto a file” on his computer.
  • Muhammad “felt a little bit more at ease” after Farrakhan in 2016 claimed that Obama visited his home in Chicago.

 

Talking Points Memo reports:

 

A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”

( Breitbart ) Sunday at the Men’s Day program hosted at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, DC, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan said to President Barack Obama, “Your people are suffering and dying in the streets,” of Chicago, so “you failed to do what should have been done.”

Farrakhan continued  by saying it is time to let Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump do “what he wants to because he is not destroying your legacy.”

  •  So you Democrats, you been in their party a long time. Answer me, what did you get? You got a president. He is worried about his legacy
  • I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re  from Chicago, and so am I. I go out in the streets with the people. I visited the worst neighborhoods. I talked to the gangs. And while I was out there talking to them, they said ‘You know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come. Could you get him to come and look after us?’  There’s your legacy, Mr. President. It’s in the streets with your suffering people, Mr. President.
