Another interesting question for Obama

"All of the claims about Senator Obama's faith and education raised in the Insight Magazine story and repeated on Fox News are false. Senator Obama was raised in a secular household in Indonesia by his stepfather and mother. Obama's stepfather worked for a U.S. oil company, and sent his stepson to two years of Catholic school, as well as two years of public school."—Obama campaign, Jan. 23, 2007 statement, regarding a story that Barack Obama attended Muslim school while living in Indonesia.

"In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school, two years at a Catholic school. In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during Koranic studies."—Obama, from his book Dreams of My Father published in 1995.
