Bin Laden backs Obama

The dallycaller has the story

"A Jerusalem journalist writing for a conservative website reported Monday night that he was able to make two small financial contributions to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in the name of the late terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.
Aaron Klein, writing for WorldNetDaily, said he successfully made campaign donations of $15 and $5 through a “proxy” service that masked his location and provided the Obama campaign website with a Pakistani Internet Protocol (IP) address instead.
The Obama campaign, Klein wrote, accepted and acknowledged both contributions, made with a disposable credit card, and followed up with additional fundraising emails to a Gmail account set up in the dead terrorist’s name."

It goes onto say

   " Knowingly accepting political donations from non-U.S. citizens is a violation of federal law."

I know the race to become Commander-in-Chief is tight and every dollar helps, but surely this is a bit extreme? 
Or a more serious note, if they cannot have a secure method  for only Americans to donate then how can Americans trust the President to keep them safe?
