(CNSNews.com) - The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former long-time pastor to Sen. Barack Obama (D.Ill.), said at the National Press Club on Monday that he believes the U.S. government is "capable" of having invented HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, as a means of committing genocide against people of color. SNIP Wright made the assertion about what he believed the United States was "capable of doing" on Monday when he was asked about what he had said about HIV in his controversial April 2003 sermon at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where Obama is a member. "Governments lie," Wright said in that sermon. "The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color."
