In 2008 The LA Times withheld a video that contained footage of Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who were openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama reportedly even gave a toast to a former PLO operative, Rashid Khalidi, at this celebration. This was something the LA Times hid from the American public before the election. The media refused to release the video.
This controversial story was first reported at Gateway Pundit.
There were also reports that terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were at the same Jew-bash.
Khalidi was thought to be connected to the PLO.
Last year Stanley Kurtz figured out a great way to trick the media into releasing the Obama-Khalidi tape – by tricking them into thinking it would be bad for Sarah Palin.
"I posted some thoughts on the media's Palin/Obama paper-trail hypocrisy last Friday. Around the same time, Gateway Pundit's Jim Hoft highlighted the continued refusal of the LA Times to release the unseen but nonetheless famous video tape in which Obama toasted Rashid Khalidi at a testimonial dinner likely also addressed by Bill Ayers. . . . Will we ever get to see that tape, and if so, how best to shake it loose?" Er, convince 'em it would be bad for Sarah Palin?
Today Breitbart announced a new strategy.
The conservative website is offering a $50,000 reward to whomever can provide the complete video recording of the 2003 farewell party for radical Palestinian academic and activist Rashid Khalidi.
