The images show a young Obama wearing a brown embroidered garment with a white Taqiyah - a Muslim prayer cap. Bill O’Reilly, Fox News presenter, claims they were taken when Obama was attending his half-brother’s wedding in Maryland in the 1990s. Although the photos have not been independently verified, Mr O’Reilly said it showed Obama’s “deep emotional ties” to Islam have stopped him effectively combating terrorists. Obama grew up in Hawaii where he lived with his American mother and Muslim father from Kenya before he left the family when the President was two-years-old. His mother Ann later remarried to an Indonesian man who took the family to his home country, which is a predominantly Muslim nation, where the then future-president lived for four years. During that time the American president attended both Muslim and Catholic schools before returning to live with his grandparents. Mr O’Reilly said that the "details on the ceremony, the location, whether the reports that Barack Obama was the best man are very difficult to verify at this point.
