Senator Obama has finally added a section to his website addressing the viral emails circulating about him and his background. Several of us have been asking for this for six months. Why it took so long to respond to the rumors is beyond me. I can only assume that Obama thought it would be better to ignore the rumors altogether rather than dignify them with a response. I think, though, that for conspiracy theorists the reticence only gave the impression that there was something to hide. I'm glad the Senator finally got an official statement out.
