A photo of Obama has surfaced of him in an amicable position with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan during a Congressional Black Caucus meeting.
However, if this picture had surfaced around the time Obama was contesting for the US Presidency he may not have won.
The picture was kept under wraps by those involved and an oath not to mention it was made so as not to affect Obama’s political standings.
Muhammed, who revealed the photo on Thursday told the Truce Edney News Wire that he ‘basically swore secrecy’ for the photo.
The picture was kept secret from the time Obama was Illinois Senator till he secured the Democratic nomination to run for president. Then it was kept secret again as Muhammed said “All the way up until the inauguration. Then for eight years after he was president, it was kept under cover.
It absolutely would have made a difference.”
Around the time he had taken the picture a CBC employee had called him ‘in a panic.’ He had then given the picture up to Leonard Farrakhan, the minister’s son-in-law and chief of staff, but first copied it to a computer.
“Realising that I had given it up, I mean, it was sort of like a promise to keep the photograph secret.”
Obama had even denounced Farrakhan in 2008 for some Anti-Semitic remarks he had made.
