Author of Obama Muslim Smear Piece Is Giuliani Advisor

First Posted: 06/25/08 07:20 PM ET Updated: 05/25/11 01:20 PM ET

As Ben Smith noted over the weekend, conservative writer Daniel Pipes has authored a new piece that unveils the next Obama Muslim smear. Pipes wrote:

"If I were a Muslim I would let you know," Barack Obama has said, and I believe him.

...suggesting that the next conservative attack on Obama could be, "he says he's not a Muslim, and I believe him."

It's worth adding a second point: That Pipes, whose hostility to Islam is well documented, is one of Giuliani's foreign policy advisers.
