Coverup! LA Times suppresses incriminating obama video

Update: Any good sleight-of-hand requires a small distraction in order for the illusion to be successful. So it has become with the Rashid Khalidi story. Attempting to distract concerned voters from the attention given to Obama’s close friendship with the former PLO spokesman, 0-bot operatives have fanned out across the web to put forth the narrative that this is no big deal, because McCain was responsible for giving Khalidi’s group money through his chaimanship of the IRI. The exact quote of the 0-bot narrative has now appeared on the internet some 534 times (and climbing).

The distraction ignores the salient fact: McCain is a known quantity. Obama is not. The American People know John McCain: his military career, his legislative career, and his unquestioned love of country. The same is not known about the Democrat nominee. Obama’s past is opacity defined, and the people have a right to know much more about this man than has been gleaned from a media widely viewed as being “in the tank for Obama.” …………..

end of update

from LAT:

John McCain’s presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of “intentionally suppressing” a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist.

The Times first reported on the videotape in an April 2008 story about Obama’s ties with Palestinians and Jews as he navigated the politics of Chicago. The report included a detailed description of the tape, but the newspaper did not make the video public.

The Times is now claiming that they promised a source not to release the 2003 video … funny how they have waited so long to make this piece of information public.

The entire matter smacks of a Watergate-style coverup of the highest order. The LA Times is on the wrong side of this issue because the public’s right to know the truth is the sole purpose of press freedom. This is crucial evidence in the court of public opinion, and to deny the American People the opportunity to view the actual smoking gun evidence is inexcusable.

Release the tape

Gut-Wrenching inexperience

From Part 1 of the Saddleback Civil Forum transcript … Rick Warren asks Obama the following question..

Q WHAT’S THE MOST SIGNIFICANT — LET ME ASK IT THIS WAY: WHAT’S THE MOST GUT WRENCHING DECISION YOU’VE EVER HAD TO MAKE AND HOW DID YOU PROCESS THAT, COME TO THAT DECISION?

A WELL, YOU KNOW, I THINK THE OPPOSITION TO THE WAR IN IRAQ WAS AS TOUGH A DECISION THAT I’VE HAD TO MAKE NOT ONLY BECAUSE THERE WERE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES BUT ALSO BECAUSE SADDAM HUSSIEN WAS A BAD PERSON AND THERE WAS NO DOUBT THAT HE MEANT AMERICA ILL.

BUT I WAS FIRMLY CONVINCED AT THE TIME THAT WE DID NOT HAVE STRONG EVIDENCE OF WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND THERE WERE A LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT AS I SPOKE TO EXPERTS KEPT ON COMING UP: DO WE KNOW HOW THE SHIITES AND THE SUNNIS AND THE KURDS ARE GOING TO GET ALONG IN A POST SADDAM SITUATION; WHAT’S OUR ASSESSMENT AS TO HOW THIS WILL AFFECT THE BATTLE AGAINST TERRORIST LIKE AL-QAEDA; HAVE WE FINISHED THE JOB IN AFGHANISTAN.

SO I AGONIZED OVER THAT, AND I THINK QUESTIONS OF WAR AND PEACE GENERALLY ARE SO PROFOUND YOU KNOW WHEN YOU MEET THE TROOPS, THEY ARE 19, 20, 21-YEAR OLD KIDS AND YOU ARE PUTTING THEM INTO HARM’S WAY THERE IS A SOLEMN OBLIGATION THAT YOU DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO GET THAT DECISION RIGHT. AND NOW AS THE WAR WENT FORWARD, VERY DIFFICULT ABOUT HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP FUNDING THE WAR IF YOU STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT IT’S NOT AMERICA’S NATIONAL INTEREST AT THE SAME TIME YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE TROOPS WHO ARE OUT THERE WITHOUT THE EQUIPMENT THEY NEED. SO THAT ALL THOSE QUESTIONS SURROUNDING THE WAR HAVE BEEN VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME.

The toughest, most gut-wrenching decision this then-unknown, Illinois state legislator has ever made in his entire life was a political one. He was willing to bet his political future that the Iraq War would go badly. And, he based his decision on the fact that he KNEW Iraq did not possess WMD’s?

How prescient.

Obama KNEW something that was directly contradicted by the very best evidence and intelligence provided by US and international intelligence as well as Saddam’s long history of flaunting UN resolutions. He was firmly convinced, despite a bi-partisan consensus, the best opinion from the previous Democrat administration, and so on, and so on, and so on.

Yet Obama, who had no access to any of the classified information, no access to any of the evidence presented to members of Congress, nothing at all upon which to base a reasoned position, was “firmly convinced” that the intelligence was faulty.

The guy is truly amazing. I can see why Sally Quinn wants to live in his world.

Unfortunately, Obama’s world is a make-believe one. His lack of any substantial life experience concerns me. The fact that the most gut-wrenching decision he has ever made carried no personal consequences for himself or his family, but rather centered upon his political viability as a candidate. is telling indeed. He was an unknown state senator in Illinois, representing a district in Chicago with a strong antiwar constituency, including the likes of Pentagon bomber and Weather Underground leader William Ayers.

This one answer at Saddleback, more than any of the others, exposes Obama as a truly empty suit.
