LA Times Wont Release Obama/PLO Leader Video

Crossposted FromRightPundits.Com

Rashid Khalidi is the controversial Palestinian scholar praised by Barack Obama in the infamous LA Times video. The LA Times newspaper refuses to release the video for thin reasons, journalistically speaking. See the evidence and story below.

Rashid Khalidi

So who is Rashid Khalidi at the center of the Los Angeles Times Obama video firestorm? Nominally he is a 58 year old Professor of Arab Studies at Columbia University intertwined in Palestinian causes. Outside the resume he has advocated and provided a legal argument for Palestinians fighting violent wars in Israeli lands, land which he still terms an occupation, putting him at odds with UN Resolution 181 in 1947/48 which established Israel and was supported by the United States. He has called for “reparations” to Iraqis for the Iraqi War.

There is some evidence that Rashid Khalidi served as a de-facto spokesman for Yasser Arafat’s bloody Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), a charge which he denies. Yet whether official spokesman or surrogate, he has done the Palestinians’ bidding over a long career that has impugned Israeli sovereignty at every opportunity, even serving as a Palestinian delegate during the farcical Madrid conference in 1991.

His controversial statements reportedly caused Princeton University to pull back from a tenured position there. So he remains at the most liberal and (subjective assessment) anti-Jewish institute of higher learning in the nation, Columbia University.

LA Times Obama Video
The saga begins way back in April 2008 when the LA Times reported on an event starring exemplary citizens William Ayers and Rashid Khalidi, sitting side by side with Barack Obama. About the video, they mention in passing that Obama toasted the radical Khalidi, but they neglect to report what exactly he said. They do not report the context, the reactions, or the speech by Ayers in which a dutiful Obama presumably sat through nodding and smiling. The LA Times concludes rather cryptically that Palestinians have a “friend” in Obama.

It should be noted that Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi are close friends, one of the few friends Obama has acknowledged from his life before 2006. His kids go to school with Khalidi’s and he has admitted a full understanding of his views in an earlier interview.

Now fast forward to October 2008 where the major media is beginning to ask questions in light of Obama’s known associations with anti-American radicals. Where is the video? Let’s see for ourselves. Even the famously liberal and their embarrassing Obama-yes-man Ben Smith has “encouraged” the video’s release. That should end the argument.

Yet suddenly the Los Angeles Times is saying today that the informant gave them the video on condition it not be released. They could write about the contents, but not release it. Anyone believe that excuse? It’s like your best friend giving you a porno tape but making you promise not to watch.

What the LA Times did say at the time about the Obama Khalidi video:

The warm embrace Obama gave to Khalidi, and words like those at the professor’s going-away party, have left some Palestinian American leaders believing that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say.

One speaker likened “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been “blinded by ideology.”

The Times claims in typical liberal fashion that they have given the full story by, you know, writing about the video. The problem, of course, is they have given us a sanitized version of the encounter, putting the best foot forward. The Los Angeles Times has endorsed Senator Obama for president, so they are hardly to be trusted with damaging information.

I think what actually happened here is the publisher is now stuck between loyalty to biased staff and the news. His Democrat staff, putting their best foot forward for Obama, concocted an excuse to hide the tape. Now the poor publisher has to protect the chastity of his staff or acknowledge they are acting like Obama embedded reporters. He knows the video is news. Give him credit for that. The junior reporters and their apologists in the newsroom are to blame for this conspiracy. Conjecture of course, but can you do better?

Wow, this guy is moving up the chain of command quicker than Sarah Palin!

First he was ONE of the spokespeople for the PLO, then he was THE spokesman for the PLO, now he's the LEADER of the PLO...what's next? Leader of al-Qaeda?

And...come to find out, an organization of which McSame is on the board of directors gave Khalidi's group $800,000!

So...a toast at a farewell party or giving the guy $800,000...I report, you decide!

What a joke!'s down to name-calling and people who have been in the same cities as Obama!

That's when you know it's over.

Well what is there to hide?

I mean why not produce this video if there is nothing to hide?

This whole election with Obama is getting creepier by the minute.

No one will release his real Birth Certificate from Hawaii (If That's Where He was Really Born), Every other Candidate known to man has realeased their information before the election, why not Obama?

I'm serious, what is there to hide and why does Obama and his surrogates insist on hiding it?

I'm just saying if there is nothing to hide, release the info!

McSame headed an organization that gave this guy $800,000...what would a video do where Obama is toasting him in a farewell dinner?

There's nothing TO hide, Marie.

You're down to less than 6 days until the election and your prayers rest on a birth certificate and a professor who wrote a book in support of a Palestinian - Israeli peace agreement.

How did Obama get a passport to travel to Pakistan while in college if he did not have a birth certificate?

Since you don't have a passport Marie, let me help you out. You can't get one unless you have a birth certificate.

It's over, Marie. The Constitution is about to make a comeback.

The days of fear and hatred will soon be over.

Unlike you guys, we don't shoot our fellow wounded citizens.

You can get a passport with a Baptism Certificate so dont give me that crap!



God, I hope not.


Nope, nothing seems to matter, and if it all the sudden does now, Obama wont answer any questions about it.

He wont let Biden out of the box, so if the Drive By Media all the sudden decideds to ask any questions? It's to late!

Why is the LA Times hiding the videotape of the infamous Khalidi meeting? Would it embarrass Barrack Obama to show he listened to, without challenging, anti-semetic speeches? He seems to have a history of listening to radical hate speech without saying a word against it, like he did at Rev Wright's church for 20 years! Let's vote for someone who will stand up against hate speech. Vote for John McCain

Yea, your pretty dumb, all you need is to be able to prove your a citizen to get a U.S. Passport, you do not need a birth certificate...

But you sure do need to be born in the US or be born abroad from a US Citizen, which his MOTHER WAS NOT when he was born, neither was his father.

As Hillary Clinton said, Obama is not ready to be president. The presidency is not an office that you can learn on the fly or learn by doing. McCain brings a lifetime of experience and has been tested throughout his entire life.

Your voting for Obama but you have NO IDEA what you are going to get from him, no one does. Someone who at all associates with Ayers, Khalidi, and Wright are garbage.

The entire time Obama has been a US Senator he has basically been running for president, and hasn't accomplished a single thing.

Sorry this will be long...

So go vote for Obama, another Democrat... Just like people voted in democrats into the Senate and the House in 2006, when all the bad economic stuff started happening. You wanted change in 2006 and you got it... Economy doing awful, mortgages and housing are awful, gas and oil prices have sky rocketed (until recently).

Obama says he wont raise taxes? Yea right. He will for sure let the Bush tax cut expire, which will already double the Taxes US Citizens pay. Plus whatever else he would raise it after that.

Spread the wealth? Give me a break.

One last thing... People say the war in Iraq is costly? Lets take a look at the costs of Illegal immigration on US Taxpayers...

The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.

Some of the things that make up this money include...

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens
Each year by state governments.
2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs
Such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school
Education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the
American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
Verify at:
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare &
social services by the American taxpayers. Verify at:

9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused
by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate
that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,
their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US

11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens
that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens
from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin
and mariju ana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border.

12. The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total
cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average
cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."

13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances
back to their countries of origin.

14. "The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million
