    Hillary Clinton was behind the smear that Barack Obama was educated in a madrassa


    The smear that Obama attended a madrassa originated on an obscure right-wing website

    The false allegation that Obama was educated in an Indonesian “madrassa” first appeared in an anonymously sourced article on the right-wing website in January 2007. (CNN and other legitimate news outlets quickly debunked the claim.) The article also alleged that the information came from researchers connected to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, but no proof ever emerged to support that allegation. As The New York Times reported in a January 29, 2007, article, “there is no evidence that Mrs. Clinton’s campaign planned to spread those accusations.”
