Bill Ayers: Labeled ‘Obama’s favorite terrorist’ he slams Obama’s policies

Bill Ayers first came to prominence for his role in the anti-Vietnam war movement in the late 1960s, and spent ten years living underground due to his organization’s militant actions against the US government. Ayers became the focus of attention again in 2008 when it was alleged that he was a close associate of then-presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

We ask Ayers about being back in the spotlight, about his time during the revolutionary 1960s and 70s, and his take on the potential for fundamental change in US society today.
