Reward: $100,000 for Khalidi Tape
Breitbart ^ | SEPTEMBER 20, 2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 09/20/2012 3:18:23 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Breitbart News is doubling its reward--to $100,000--for one of the missing pieces of Barack Obama’s past, which may be the key to understanding his collapsing Middle East policy: the “Khalidi tape,” a video kept under wraps by the Los Angeles Times since April 2008.

The Khalidi tape shows Obama at a 2003 farewell party for radical Palestinian academic and activist Rashid Khalidi, and reportedly features vitriolic anti-Israel rhetoric.

Reporter Peter Wallsten--now with the Wall Street Journal--revealed the existence of the tape in an article on Obama’s pro-Palestinian background. Obama’s participation in the Khalidi event, Wallsten wrote, had led Palestinian-Americans to believe "that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say."

The article was not aimed at vetting Obama’s past; rather, the tape was likely shared with the Times as a means of pressuring Obama by reminding him of his past commitment to the Palestinian cause as he courted pro-Israel voters and donors.

Accordingly, Wallsten seems to have revealed only enough of what was on the video to achieve that aim. While noting that some speakers accused the Israeli government of terrorism and likened Jewish settlers to Osama bin Laden, Wallsten added that Obama "adopted a different tone...and called for finding common ground."

You would think someone would have sued the LA Slimes under some theory to get this released.

“You would think someone would have sued the LA Slimes under some theory to get this released.”

They would probably just destroy it if they have not already.

L.A. Slimes (owned by Chicago Tribune) only sues to get sealed divorce papers opened when they belong to a Republican challenger to Obama.

Tape is lost in their pile of embroidered knee pads.

A $100K reward won’t get it. Larry Flint knows that. You need to make it $1 million at least.

Nope, they wouldn’t destroy it. It’s more valuable to the Slimes to have at their disposal any time they feel threatened but Obama or one of his people.
