Skip to comments.Is Khalid al-Mansour the man behind Obama myth?
Posted on 08/30/2008 6:42:21 AM PDT by DAVEY CROCKETT
A few weeks back, I wrote a column titled, "Who Wrote 'Dreams From My Father'?" My research led me to the conclusion that a literary neophyte like Obama could not have written the memoir on his own. It was simply too well crafted.
I was also suspicious about his claim that publishers had sought him out, while still unknown, contract in hand. I doubted, too, that the publisher would have paid him a hefty advance.
And I refused to believe that his publisher would have invested the hefty ghostwriting fee needed to rescue the project after four years of amateurish dithering, a dithering that included an extended stay for Barack and Michelle on Bali.
"The whole story smells of purposeful intervention," I wrote. "The whole book does. A political career holds more promise when launched with a lovely memoir under one's belt than with an unfulfilled contract over one's head. Much more."

I don’t usually like WND but FYI.
I usually shun WND but this perked my interest.
Interesting speculation by Jack. Thanks for posting. Does the man at the head of the ‘rat ticket have any real close friends who are not on the fringes?
please - I am not a conspiracy type - just a thinker.
But, the writer's arguments “small” correct - could be accurate.
Apparently, al-Mansour serves on the Board of, among others, Saudi African Bank and was responsible for the Africa investment activities of Kingdom Holdings, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s investment company.
Two other details argue for this al-Mansour’s involvement in Obama’s academic and literary careers. He has been a guest lecturer at Harvard University and has authored 24 books.
In short, al-Mansour fits the profile of the political godfather.
There is nothing new under the sun when it comes to Democrat tactics.
Well, we have just over two months to figure that out...
Puppet. That’s the word I’ve been trying to think of for months. There has been something not quite right with him and puppet is it.
It is a sales site for his books....nearly all unpublished.
Despite the Arabic sounding name this guy is as American as Jesse Jackson or Percy Sutton.
I've mailed data on this guy to Levin and Rush. But for some reason they are avoiding digging into either this obama connection or the Kenyan/Odinga mother lode.
What is interesting about the “hints” in this article is the recurring image of a “man behind the curtain” ...
Is Soros one of the “international financial” groups influenced by, and funding, this writer?
It is fairly easy to identify authors now using software and a bit of deduction by an expert.
Might be interesting to figure out who the ghost writer is.
I used to read WND daily. I've also had one of my Letters to the Editor chosen as "Letter of the Week."
HOWEVER, they never published ANY of my letters that were critical of Obama, going all the way back to 2004. Even now, when the multitude of their readers are now getting wise to Obama, my NObama letters are being ignored.
Also ignored was the research I sent to them right after the Daily Kos published the Obama COLB image forgery. Instead, they ran the story that the Israel Insider published, well after my research, that did mention my research.
But, WND could have had an exclusive, and they blew it, bigtime.
this story may grow legs
EXCELLENT ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully J. Cashill will continue pursueing the backing of this Obama HUSSEIN Candidacy! There are too many unsavory characters and unknown sponsors surrounding this MOST UNUSUAL Obama Osama HUSSEIN!
Maybe Col. Quadaffi of Libya knows what he is talking about when he states: “ Obama is one of US and We pray to ALLAH for his Victory!” I know I dont doubt Quadaffi’s words!
Dr. Cashill is on to something very important and critical to OUR NATION’s Future and Health!
I have been wondering the same thing because it makes no sense for the Democratic party to choose such an empty suit with a muslim name. Why didn’t they just go a little farther stupid and find some idiot with the name “bin laden”. I mean Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama...both are scrapings off the bottom of the barrel. It makes me wonder who is so stupid as to choose either one of these losers, but then there is Dingy Harry and Nazi Pelosi at the top of the heap...which also makes no sense. Why all the losers...which comes around to your question which is “Who is controlling this show and these choices to represent the party...is it someone who is deaf, dumb and blind and being held in a straight jacket in a padded cell somewhere on multiple mind-altering drugs?”>br?<br?I dunno, but it sure is really wierd!!
Just goolges around the net offer nothing. This is a well thought out and financed obama. We need to be very afraid.
Granny there are searches to be done.
Here is obama current speach witter.
The Voice behind Obama: Jon Favreau 03
You know youre talking to a speechwriter when every word out of his mouth is quotable. Thats how the interview went with Jon Favreau. It is no wonder that U.S. Sen. Barack Obama tapped Favreau to be part of his campaign team. The two are equally engaging.
I asked Favreau how one embarks on a career in speechwriting, and helike most alumnicredits the College with helping him launch his career.
It all started because of Holy Cross, he recalls. I did the internship program in Washington, D.C., and I spent a semester in Sen. Kerrys office during my junior year of college.
Favreau worked closely with the communications director in the press department during his internship. Throughout his final year at Holy Cross, he kept bugging the director for a job in the campaign. The night before commencement, he received a phone call.
“Do you think we’ll get 270 by midnight?”
“Baby, we’re gonna have five hundy by midnight!”
Theodore “Ted” Sorensen, the adviser whom John F. Kennedy once called his “intellectual blood bank,” is lending his unabashed support — and eloquence — to the Obama campaign.
In the face of ‘08, Camelot divides over political endorsements.
The Kennedy Connection
Oprah, another gushing Obama supporter, may have star power, but Sorensen has brain power.
At the age of 24, he joined the staff of the newly elected Sen. John F. Kennedy and later helped him win the presidency, calling on Americans to pass the torch to a new generation.
The legendary speechwriter helped Kennedy craft the now-famous 1961 Inaugural address in which the new president proclaimed, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
At the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis — when Sorensen was 34 — he penned the letter to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev that historians say saved the world from nuclear destruction.
Today, at 79 years old and blind, Sorensen has a new mission: to resurrect Camelot. And it seems the Obama campaign is listening.
“I've given them a phrase or suggestion or two,” Sorensen admits.
As for all the comparisons that have been drawn between Obama and Kennedy, “I probably started it,” he told ABCNEWS.com
Your Candidate? Find Your Presidential Match!
Torch Passed to Obama’s Speechwriters
Sorensen has not only given his support and advice to the Obama camp, he's grown close to the senator's young speechwriters as well.
The candidate's deputy writer — Adam Frankel — assisted Sorensen with his memoirs, which Harper Collins will publish in time for his 80th birthday in May.
“We've become close friends,” Sorensen said of Frankel, 26, one of Obama’s wordsmiths.
“He knows me and my style and JFK's style and his speeches. It's surprising the little touches that creep in to whatever he writes for Obama.”
Sorry I have no clue what you are talking about.
A parody of dialogue from the movie “Swingers”, which Favreau also wrote.
Oops. Apparently there’s more than one Jon Favreau who writes now. I was thinking this was the older one who wrote the movie. My bad.
Looks like there is a Ayers-Saudi connection.
Obama is a very scary puppet.
Dr Khalid Abdullah Al-Mansour
It is our hope that this site will provide education, information and insights on a wide spectrum of stimulating and thought provoking subjects, with a respectful and caring focus on all things African. As you can see from our logo, we have a different view of Africa than the prevailing view. When Europeans visited that part of the world, they called the Arabian Peninsula the Middle East. We call it North East Africa as is obviously dictated by geographical reality.
Another non-traditional feature is that with the exception of Christianity, Islam and the African Race, all titles published by the First African Arabian Press are written by the internationally acclaimed lecturer, author and businessman, Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour.
Although new titles have not been published since Lost Books of Africa We Charge Genocide in 1995, Dr. Al-Mansour continues to write a book every year during the Holy Month of Ramadan. It is expected that the ten unpublished titles he has penned during the interim will be available for downloading from the Internet by the latter part of 2007 in e-book format.
Keep in touch by way of this Web for the announcement of our initial e-book kick-off. We expect that our current book pricing structure will be reduced by about 40% to our readers plus additional savings because there will be no more shipping charges. We also plan to reprint our out-of-print books using the e-book technology including the ever popular Betrayal By Any Other Name.
We also plan to negotiate win-win strategies with the Black booksellers who are interested in participation in our e-book marketing plan. The First African Arabian Press recognizes the contribution made by them in keeping Black history alive in our communities and is committed to their preservation and participation in new technology.
So, he's flogging books, but there's more here than meets the eye at first. It's: AFRICAN-ARABIAN! AFRICAN-ARABIAN! AFRICAN-ARABIAN!
Obama Snr's RACE. Not African, But AFRICAN-ARABIAN. That's why the CoLB is a forgery. He may have been able to overcome a name change from Barry Soetoro, but he could never overcome his father's AFRICAN-ARABIAN RACE, and that's why 'Dreams From My Father' was written IMO. The book was a carefully constructed myth to enable obama to present himself as an African-American, which, with an African-Arab father would have been not only objectionable, but downright impossible.
This Dr Khalid Abdullah Al-Mansour was instrumental in getting obama into Harvard Law was he? Now there's a long-range plan for you.
Islamic Studies Gets $20M Gift
Mayor Giuliani once spurned Saudi princes altruism, but Harvard embraces billionaire

The worlds fifth wealthiest man, Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud, is donating $20 million to Harvard to expand Islamic studies, the University announced yesterday.
The donation will be used to launch a University-wide Islamic studies program and to endow four senior professorships, according to a press release. The gift will also fund a new initiative, the Islamic Heritage Project, which will digitize classic Islamic texts and make them available via the internet...
People make much of Soros, but in my analysis, Soros is, himself, a puppet, with others pulling *his* strings. No, the real "puppetmasters" are quite faceless, and quite nameless, which is how they want it.
They act from the shadows of complete obscurity, and anonymity, which is what makes them effective. Soros, by himself, is just a puppet puppetmaster. It is those who fund, and direct *him* which are the dangerous ones, and we'll never know who they are...
He knows me and my style and JFK’s style and his speeches. It’s surprising the little touches that creep in to whatever he writes for Obama. <<<<
Sneaky bunch of creeps.
Just a little of the good ole JFK.
Davey if you haven’t read all of Jack Cashill’s writing, take time to do so.
And sign up for his newsletter.
I like his writing. LOL, much of it agrees with what I am already thinking.
His reports on Flight 800 crash, are excellent.
and I spent a semester in Sen. Kerrys office during my junior year of college.<<<
That did it for me.
This Dr Khalid Abdullah Al-Mansour was instrumental in getting obama into Harvard Law was he? Now there’s a long-range plan for you. <<<
Haven’t they planned this for 1,400 years?
Excellent article and it is right, as an African America, he could go to the top....not as an Arab, or not yet.
Who is Khalid al-Mansour? And more importantly, why was he promoting Barack Obama in the 1980s and raising money for him, when Obama was in his twenties?
It is my opinion that Obama is a muslim/communist that has been groomed to go ‘places’ for most of his life.
They do that, choose with promise and use them, the others are fitted with an exploding belt.
Do you think it might be THE PINBALL WIZARD?
