This was a rumor started by Andy Martin and subsequently repeated by Jerome Corsi in his book.
As to Ayers specifically, it seems to me that he is a classic example of an American who turned his life completely around. He's respectable enough (now - apologetic or not for his past) to have been named Chicago's Citizen of the Year in 1997, 10 years after he became a professor. This, I believe, was pointed out earlier in the thread.
Anyway, I'll go read the other link now.

How has it been shown to be false?
IMO, he is not
respectable, not by any stretch of the imagination.
And he is, admittedly, unrepentent for his crimes
He may not have been convicted because of a technicality or whatever but that doesn't even matter as he has admitted his crimes and is proud of them.
Such is the caliber of many liberal professors at many colleges today. Not bombers maybe, but "Hate America" types. Although I notice they have no problem collecting their huge salary.
If they were such great guys they would slash their own salaries to make college tuition more affordable.
And being named Citizen of the Year in Chicago really doesn't mean much to me. We are talking about Chicago here.
