Did Arab Islamists Fund Obama’s Education?

Wow. This is all Manchurian Candidate-ish.

Augger pointed to this in the comments on another post but it deserves a longer look – via Elizabeth Price Foley, who is guest posting at Instapundit:

BOMBSHELL:  OBAMA’S POSSIBLE TIES TO ARAB WORLD DEEPENS:  A reporter for a paper called the Daily Interlake, Frank Miele, recently discovered a 1979 op-ed by Vernon Jarrett (the father-in-law to Obama Senior Advisor, confidant, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett) in the St. Petersburg (FL) Evening Independent.  Miele reports the column addressed:

“rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions.” The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, “It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.”

Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer — Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.”

A-Mansour is a black nationalist, Muslim, and a lawyer to Saudi princes who has publicly professed his hatred of the U.S.  In a television interview in 2008, Percy Sutton (a prominent black political leader and former Manhattan borough president) told a reporter that Sutton was introduced to Obama by al-Mansour, who “was raising money for him [Obama]” and asked Sutton to write a letter in support of Obama’s application to Harvard Law School.  Sutton wrote the letter in support of Obama, and the rest is history.

So let’s get this straight:  Our President may have deep ties (personal and financial) not only to black nationalist extremists, but also wealthy Arabs who publicly floated the idea of financing, among other projects, the top-flight education of young black Americans who might (hopefully) one day share their hatred of America?

So, think this might have something to do with Obama embargoing his college records? Could it be that the Saudis paid for young Barry Soetoro to go off to college? Perhaps Barry’s softness toward the Arab world is payback?

The ties to Obama, while wholly believable, are circumstantial at present – as I have said, absence of evidence is not proof – but the 1979 article is very, very real. It also takes a high degree of suspension of belief that with all of this radicalism surrounding him, that it didn’t rub off. He has surrounded himself with the progeny of these radicals so we have to assume that since they didn’t rebel against their parents and mentors, that Obama, Jarrett and crew agree with the communist and Islamist agendas.

We need some true investigative journalists to look into this in a serious way.

Augger should get credit for this catch.

  1. “Wow. This is all Manchurian Candidate-ish.”

    If by that you mean creative but otherwise meaningless movie-style fantasy, you’re exactly right. Damn, you folks are entertaining. But do keep the focus off of things that matter, and you’ll continue to help Obama with his re-election.

  2. More on “reporter” Frank Miele, who writes a column for the Daily Interlake: http://mtcowgirl.com/2011/03/09/right-wing-editor-of-the-daily-inter-lake-is-way-far-gone/

    That newspaper–for which one of my former students used to work–is located in a valley in which there seems to be a billboard-sized rendition of the Ten Commandments every 10 miles. The newspaper itself, Miele writes, “was one of 10 daily newspapers published by Freedom Newspapers Inc., a partnership that was based on belief in ‘a system of natural law.’” http://dailyinterlake.com/opinion/columns/frank/article_7451c442-cd64-11e1-adc5-0019bb2963f4.html

    And Miele is a confirmed birther whose politics may be to the right of anyone who posts at the RNL. Before going to work for the Interlake, he wrote for a magazine produced by the Skeptics Society, which describes itself as “a nonprofit 501(c)(3) scientific and educational organization whose mission is to engage leading experts in investigating the paranormal, fringe science, pseudoscience, and extraordinary claims of all kinds, promote critical thinking, and serve as an educational tool for those seeking a sound scientific viewpoint.”

    Sorry, Utah, but somehow I don’t see this story getting traction with anyone beyond the lunatic fringe.

    • How does that change in any way what Jarrett wrote in 1979? Sorry there, Professor. I hope you teach your students better than the “shoot the messenger” process you just displayed here. I didn’t even base the post on anything from Kalispell, I simple drew conclusions from the Jarrett article,

  3. “We need some true investigative journalists to look into this in a serious way.”
    The list of things that need to be researched has gotten so long now that it could never be completed.
