I don’t know what is on this tape, but it seems like it must be pretty bad because Obama would have released it to prove that it was not so bad. By not releasing the tape, the story grows legs and keeps rattling around in the news cycle, making people wonder what exactly is on this tape. At first I was skeptical about this tape and I thought if might be an attempt to poison the well by Obama’s camp (don’t trust them too much), but now even I want to know about this darn tape and if it as bad as has been described.
UPDATE: Can Ali Abunimah be bought off for $175,000? Depends on what he’s getting from greater Arabia, Islamia, and Obama. ****
There has been much discussion throughout the Net about a secreted video showing Barack Obama at a dinner with terrorists Bill Ayers and wife Bernadine Dohrn, and the anti-Semitic Arafat advisor, Rashid Khalidi.
The Los Angeles Times has a copy of the tape, but won’t release it because they said the source–whom I believe is Arab American Action Network (AAAN) founder and anti-Israel Palestinian activist Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada–required it not be released as a condition of sharing it. That’s because it likely shows Obama applauding an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel poem that was read at the dinner.
