LA Times Obama-Rashid Khalidi Video:
LA Times Won’t Release Video of Obama and Wife at Jew-Bash
McCain accuses the Times of covering up the information
Blogger Doug Ross Gets Tip on Two Obama Quotes at 2003 Event

Rashid Khalidi

“We should know about their relationship including, apparently, information that is held by the Los Angeles Times concerning an event that Mr. Ayers attended with a PLO spokesman.”

“The Los Angeles Times refuses to make that videotape public. I’m not in the business about talking about media bias but what if there was a tape with John McCain with a neo-Nazi outfit being held by some media outlet, I think the treatment of the issue would be slightly different.”
–John McCain, to WAQI, also known as Radio Mambi

McCain Campaign Calling LA Times to Release Video
An Eyebrow-raising Guest List

DBKP reported earlier today that Doug Ross received a pair of quotes from a source who had seen the video the LA Times is holding, “Obama-Khalidi Tape: Blogger Obtains Quotes from Hidden Video UPDATED“.

Ross’ story “RED ALERT tip: Two Quotes from the Obama-Khalidi Videotape“, cites a source “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.

The two quotes offered by Ross’ source are certainly reason enough that the LA Times would want to suppress the video. Obama is supposedly congratulating the

“Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine.”

and

“there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.”

The source said that Obama used the quotes to “rile the audience (largely pro-Palestinian) up”.


Obama Campaign Has Still Refused
To Release Medical, College and University Records

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that McCain Accuses L.A. Times of Holding Back Obama Video.

John McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin, today accused the Los Angeles Times of withholding a videotape of an event that he asserted was attended by both Barack Obama and 1960s-era radical Bill Ayers. The campaign has repeatedly argued that Obama has not been straight about their relationship.

The videotape, described in an April L.A. Times story, was of a 2003 banquet honoring Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian activist and scholar. At the dinner, Obama spoke of their friendship and how much he had learned from him.

On Tuesday, a McCain spokesman first called on the newspaper to release the videotape, saying it would shed light on the relationship between Obama and Khalidi. Today, McCain repeated the call in an interview with a Cuban radio station, accusing the newspaper of bias and asserting that Ayers was at the event as well—a point that has not been reported anywhere. Palin made the same points from the stump.

The Times has provided four different excuses for not releasing the tape–finally settling on the latest, that “it was provided by a confidential source on condition that it not be released.”

In a story published today, the newspaper said it did not publish the tape itself because it was provided by a confidential source on condition that it not be released. “The Times keeps its promises to sources,” said the newspaper’s editor, Russ Stanton.

Ross responds to this latest reason for not the LA Times not publishing the news:

“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?”
