AIM: Justice for Victims of the Weather Underground

Writing for the Accuracy in Media Web site, Cliff Kincaid says a live version of “Forensic Files” hits Washington, D.C. on March 12, as pressure mounts for an expanded probe of Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, and their alleged roles in the 1970 bombing murder of a San Francisco policeman.

For those who may have missed the rather shallow reporting on the issue by the media over the last election cycle, Ayers and Dohrn, now university professors, were members of a communist terrorist gang called the Weather Underground during the 1960s and 1970s whose aim was to support communist regimes and anti-American movements around the world and destroy the United States. The group received terrorist training in Communist Cuba and was advised by Soviet and Cuban intelligence agents.

President Barack Obama started his political career in Ayers' home and served with Ayers on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago between 1999 and 2002.

There's a glut of fact-checking articles on the Internet that delve into the depths of the Obama-Ayers relationship. However, Obama dismissed the relationship several times during the election as a distraction and irrelevant saying Ayers was just someone who lived in his neighborhood.
