Muslim women in headscarves barred from Obama photo op’s

Two Muslim women who attended a rally for Barack Obama in Detroit were barred from sitting behind the podium by campaign volunteers, who sought to prevent the women’s headscarves from appearing in photographs with the candidate. After complaints, the Obama campaign has since apologized to the women, and all supporters of the Democratic nominee who felt betrayed by their treatment at the rally. Barack Obama has and continues to fight smears about his religious adherence, and distortions about having a Muslim upbringing.
