Skip to comments.Missing piece surfaces in the Obama puzzle (How Obama got into elite schools)
Posted on 09/24/2012 5:16:41 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Nobody knows for sure how Barack Obama managed to get into and pay for the elite higher education he received, particularly given his self-admitted lackadaisical approach to school in his younger years. The president's decision to keep his higher education records a secret is considered unworthy of attention by the mainstream media.
Students of Obama's rise have long been intrigued by a television interview granted by Percy Sutton, e borough president of Manhattan, and one of the most influential black politicians in New York City, in which he stated that:
"he had been introduced to Obama "by a friend who was raising money for him. The friend's name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas. He is the principal adviser to one of the world's richest men. He told me about Obama." (snip)
He also revealed that he had first heard about Obama 20 years previously in a letter where al-Mansour wrote, "there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends up there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?"
Sutton concluded in the interview, "I wrote a letter of support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly."

a genius..... Genuinely trickery.
The question isn’t about Obie One, it is who is this Texas. Fellow?
ugh. steaming pile alert genius my @$$.
The jackass is a fraud with likely crappy grades.
Born the 11th of 12 children as Donald Warden to a polyglot father who often spoke glowingly about Islam, al-Mansour decided to change his name in 1964 after learning Arabic and studying Islam.
We knew about this crap in 2008 before he was elected. This is being treated like it is new, It isn’t.
We are only seeing it on the side, no one is bringing it before the major media and it won’t matter if they do.
Our Manchurian(Muslim)Resident is a phony and we all know it.
America’s ignorant will probably re-elect him.
As in Moslum jinn's rear end.
The information about Mansour was in a book written before the election of 2008. I think I recall something about Mansour in Jerome Corsi’s book. However,for me, the most impressive book was THE CASE AGAINST BARACK OBAMA by David Freddoso. It has a great deal of WELL DOCUMENTED information that would probably shock many of the people who voted for this great mistake.
"Thanks for paying my tuition, your majesty."
No secret there. In the 70’s if you were black and liberal elite colleges would be tripping all over each other throwing money at you in order to convince you to come.
I would urge freepers to download it and save it (the "downloadhelper" add-on for Firefox works well on youtube). Evidence that badly effects Obama tends to go "missing".
It started from the beginning. He went to school at the elite Punahou School, a private college-prep school, "with the aid of a scholarship". He was being groomed from an early age.
Had Mr. Lifson been reading FR back in 2008, all this would not be news to him today.
