David Ray Hearts Osama

When David Ray Griffin is not hanging out with nutjob anti-Semitic pseudo-intellectuals, he is being interviewed on one of Kevin Barrett's radio shows. But I repeat myself...

In any case he was on Barrett's show on June 27th promoting his new book arguing that Osama bin Laden is dead, and, well, Griffin seems rather taken with his dead Saudi fundamentalist. From 39 minutes in:

Beside the fact, that this picture, and you know you can't go much by a picture, but I read a lot about him, and he was known as a very remarkable young man. As a student at school, when people would say, have a bet or something where they needed people to hold money, it was always bin Laden that they would give it to, because he was the one person that everybody could trust. He was known as a very pious, honest person. And the fact that we have made him into this demon is probably a terrible thing that we have done to his memory.

Gee, the last thing I would want to do is sully the memory of Osama bin Laden.
