LA Times Refuses to Release Barack Obama - Rashid Khalidi Video

The LA Times is refusing to release a video that shows Barack Obama with Rashid Khalidi. The event was a send off and Obama was reportedly present when many disparaging comments were made about Israel. Obama said, well, we do not know. We do not know because the LA Times will not release the tape nor a complete transcript.

Why will they not release the tape, apparently they promised the source that gave it to them. That is the latest in reasons they will not release it. Everyone from the lowly bloggers to the McCain campaign has called for the release of this video. What does it show someone who is on the verge of becoming the leader of the free world doing? says they know from a tipster.

"However, I received a tip from a person who has provided useful, accurate and unique data from LA before (e.g., "All six of CNN's 'undecided voters' were Democratic operatives"). Take it for what it's worth, but I believe this person is on target.

Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can't release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying "Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" plus there's been "genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis."

It would be really controversial if it got out. Tha's why they will not even let a transcript get out.

Yep, I guess that would do it.

It is unlikely the LA Times will release the tape but all hope is not lost in the blogosphere. has a reward for anyone with a video of that night. That reward is up to $200,000 ( Will it be enough, and is their another copy of the tape out there? If we do not have our answer within the week then it really will not matter.
