Democrat Wants Controversial Obama Video Released

Why won't the LA Times release the video? What is the Times trying to hide.

"In the commercial the narrator tells viewers: "Obama says Iran is a 'tiny' country, doesn't pose a serious threat. Terrorism? Destroying Israel? Those aren't serious threats?"

But in addition to the McCain ad, there is the question of Obama's ties to friends of Yasser Arafat raised in the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper has a video, which it is not releasing, of Obama partying and toasting a friend, Rashid Khalidi, who was once a spokesman for the Palestinian Liberation Organization and is now a Columbia professor.

The newspaper reported that during the Khalidi party, "a young Palestinian American woman recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians," and she sharply criticized U.S. support for Israel. If Palestinians cannot save their own land, she said, "then you will never see a day of peace."

"Why isn't the truth being told to the American people so they can really know what the relationship was between Sen. Obama and Rashid Khalidi?" asked New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn). "
