Los Angeles Times Should Release Barack Obama-Rashid Khalidi Video

Let me add my small blog voice to the growing crowd: The Los Angeles Times needs to release the video that supposedly shows Barack Obama “toasting a terrorist” (and not in the nuclear vaporization sort of way, either). As Little Green Footballs points out, the infamous figure in question is former PLO spokesman Rashid Khalidi.

RedState has the latest in the form of a Fox News report:

No one can credibly deny that the media establishment is in the tank for Barack Obama. If there’s nothing to see, a public vetting of the video would dispel the rumors. But the longer the Times clings to it, the more legitimate suspicion grows. And the Times‘ excuses for not releasing the video don’t hold much water. All appearances indicate they are covering for their preferred presidential candidate, and it’s a disservice to the public.

Michelle Malkin is right: continuing on this trend is bad for the newspaper business.

    Oops again.

    “During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.”

    Perhaps John McCain should fully explain his relationship with this “terrorist”

    We need to have this video tape released. This is the president of the united states we are voting for, and full disclosure is a must.
