The last few days the interwebs have been ablaze with the rumor that right wing provocateur Andrew Breitbart was murdered by President Obama's hit squad for claiming he had possession of video of a speech Barack Obama gave in 1990 at Harvard Law School. In the video Obama can be seen defending Harvard’s first tenured black professor Derrick Bell for resigning in protest due to Harvard's lack of tenured women of color.
Breitbart claimed that he would release the full and unedited tape and that it would provide evidence that Obama has long held radical political beliefs.
The problem with the conspiracy theory is that in 2008 FRONTLINE ran the same footage of the speech as a part of an exploration of Obama’s time at Harvard Law School. It’s been online at our site and on YouTube since then.
I believe that President Obama really overacted on this one. The video shows nothing. He should save his private hit squad of black, Muslim, ninja assassins for more important murderings!
