DEMOCRATIC presidential candidate Barack Obama was ... trying to get his campaign for the party's nomination back on track after declaring his controversial former pastor "was not the person that I met 20 years ago".
The Illinois senator said he was "outraged and saddened" by the Rev Jeremiah Wright's latest "divisive and destructive" remarks on race.
Mr Wright made a series of speeches earlier this week in which he said the US government was responsible for terrorist attacks on America and that it invented Aids to kill black people.
He said: "What became clear to me is that he was presenting a world view that contradicts who I am and what I stand for." -- Scotsman
