Did Dr. Khalid al-Mansour pay for Barack Obama's education at Harvard Law School?

Thomas Lifson
Legendary lawyer and politician Percy Sutton has died at the age of 89, and the major media are omitting mention of one of his most notable acts. The former Borough President of Manhattan, Sutton had a long and distinguished career as a lawyer (he was Malcolm X's attorney) and media mogul, who purchased radio stations in New York and other cities, making them into high rated black-oriented outlets. He also purchased and renovated (thereby saving from the wrecking ball) New York's legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem. To top it off, Sutton was a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, one of the most celebrated groups in military aviation circles. A man of great accomplishment, whatever else one might think about his politics, and a man worthy of great respect.

However, one of Sutton's most notable moments is absent from the media hagiographies I have seen: he stated on television that he knew that an Islamic supremacist, Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and advisor to a wealthy Saudi, had paid for Barack Obama's education at Harvard Law School.

Exactly how young Barack Obama, a man of slender means, managed to pay for a Harvard Law degree has long been a mystery, and the President has not been forthcoming about any details of his elite education.

See for yourself, Sutton's remarkable statement, which has been considgned to the Memory Hole, by the major media. Not even a reference to a "controversial contention" or other such euphemism. It simply never happened as far as the media are concerned.

Clicked on the link, and video removed. Looks like they really don't want anyone asking questions about President Barry

Transcript from the atached YouTube clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD068xXkCZc)
=======================================

The YouTube clip is an excerpt from an interview on the U.S. cable channel NY1 from the show "City Hall".

Interviewer Dominic Carter interviews human rights activist Percy Sutton who was a lawyer to Malcolm X.


INTERVIEWER:
Let's talk about the presidential race. What do you make of the situation with Senator Obama?

One, that you would ever see this in yor lifetime given your background,

and two, what you've had to work so hard to overcome in terms of society

and what did you make of this situation with Reverend Wright, his pastor or former pastor

SUTTON:
One, as to Mr Obama I think he is the brightest most wonderful person who has come across the starting line and I was introduced to him by a friend who was raising money for him.

The friend's name was Dr Khalid Al Mansour from Texas. He is the principal adviser to one of the world's richest men.

He told me about him, Obama, he wrote to me about him and his introduction was "There is a young man that has applied to Harvard.

I know that you have a few friends left there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?"

That's because before Obama decided to run. And he interjected the advice that Obama had passed the requirements had taken and passed the requirements necessary to get into Harvard and become president of the Law Review.

That's before he ever ran for anything. And I wrote a letter in support of him to my friends in Harvard, saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly.


INTERVIEWER:
And this is before the world knew of Barack Obama.

SUTTON:
That's right, that's right, that's right,

Причина вторая. Каждому мужчине иногда хочется быть ребенком - воеже его побаловали, поухаживали изза ним… Он неослабно кого-то защищает, о ком-то заботится - и так иногда кто-то заботится о нем! Но выше всемогущий пол на трезвую голову никак не может позволить себе эту минутку слабости. И тут один освобождение - напиться. Сердобольные граждане предварительно дома доведут, благоверная в постельку уложит, ботиночки снимет… [url=http://rtd-universal.com/user/MarusKn/]Балашова[/url] [url=http://rtd-universal.com/user/MarusKn/]Зоя[/url] [url=http://white-shaman.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=28940]Cколько стоит раскрутить такой сайт?[/url]
