LATimes Tape Exposes Barack Obama’s Anti-Israeli Stance

Well well well… Yep trying to hide something… It is not about protecting a source it is about protecting Obama… More Change You Can Believe In!

You know the videotape that shows Barack Obama toasting PLO terrorist Rashid Khalidi? The one that the Los Angeles Times refuses to release?

“The Los Angeles Times did not publish the videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who did so on the condition that we not release it,” said the newspaper’s editor, Russ Stanton…

How frickin’ stupid do they think we are? Someone gave the Times a videotape so it wouldn’t be released? And they can’t publish a transcript?

I guess that’s the kind of executive talent the newspaper business is attracting these days.

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.

Update/FAQ on this post

Is there really a tape? Yes. The Times has acknowledged that the tape exists.

Why won’t the Times release the tape? They’ve now come up with four reasons over the past few days for suppressing the video. None of the answers make sense. As for their most recent excuse (they promised not to release it) Ed Morrissey asks the critical question.

“‘The Los Angeles Times did not publish the videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who did so on the condition that we not release it,’ said the newspaper’s editor, Russ Stanton. ‘The Times keeps its promises to sources.'”

That explanation raises more questions than it answers. If the Times promised to keep the videotape under wraps, then it must contain content other than their “detailed account of the events”. What exactly did the LA Times leave out of its reporting in April? If it left nothing out, then what good was the promise not to release the tape itself?

Do you know who sent the tip? No.

Why believe the tip? While I receive a lot of tips and links, I seldom publish them. This particular email address has provided accurate and unique information in the past, as I noted above. No one else reported the information and I found it to be accurate in the past. As I said, take it for what it’s worth.

Why doesn’t the Times just publish a transcript? Why indeed.

Update IIDebbie, who apparently broke the original tape story, has a suspected source for the video.Charles Johnson and Gateway Pundit have excellent summaries.

  1. Let’s expose America’s anti anyone of color….Case in point, you can’t find a Black Panther, but the KKK, skinheads are alive and well and in the White House. They are even tagged “supreme”, everyone else is a hate group. The moment anyone of color speaks up about the hate its dismissed, but it’s OK for the so called “real” Americans. Speak on that and be honest.

  2. jmilton, you need to wake up and stop smoking the crack.

    The KKK in is in the White House… You are truly ignorant.

    The black panthers supported Barack Obama on his own site by opening up their own MyBarack page…

    This country is so politically correct that it is actually the opposite of what you say. No one can say anything about Barack Obama without being labeled a racist.

    As I said in the other post, you cannot even discuss the topic at hand, instead all you can do is spread your racist hate.

  3. Russ Stanton, editor of the LA Times, has won the 2008 Dan Rather Award.
