Donald Ward aka “Khalid Al Mansour”
Kenneth R. Timmerman describes the latest skeleton to fall out of Barak Obama’s personal closet.
When Obama was applying to Harvard, Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton was asked to write a letter of recommendation for him by Donald Warden aka Khalid Al Mansour, a radical Black Nationalist, once mentor to Huey Newton, founder of the Black Panthers, later an Islamicist extremist and antisemite.
YouTube has numerous videos of this gentleman’s rants.
New evidence has emerged that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was closely associated as early as age 25 to a key adviser to a Saudi billionaire who had mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers.
In a videotaped interview this year on New Yorkâ€™s all news cable channel NY1, a prominent African-American businessman and political figure made the curious disclosures about Obama.
Percy Sutton, the former borough president of Manhattan, off-handedly revealed the unusual circumstances about his first encounter with the young Obama.
â€œI was introduced to (Obama) by a friend who was raising money for him,â€ Sutton told NY1 city hall reporter Dominic Carter.
â€œThe friendâ€™s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas,â€ Sutton said. â€œHe is the principal adviser to one of the worldâ€™s richest men. He told me about Obama.â€
Sutton, the founder of Inner City Broadcasting, said al-Mansour contacted him to ask a favor: Would Sutton write a letter in support of Obamaâ€™s application to Harvard Law School?
â€œHe wrote to me about him,â€ Sutton recalled. â€œAnd his introduction was there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends up there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?â€
Sutton said he acted on his friend al-Mansourâ€™s advice.
â€œI wrote a letter of support of him to my friends at 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,â€ Sutton told NY1.
Suppose the New York Times were to discover that the mentor of one of the founders of the American Nazi Party, an extremist with ties to foreign radicals who was still delivering antisemitic diatribes today, had persuaded a prominent Republican politician to write a letter of recommendation to McCain’s Congressman supporting his appointment to the Naval Academy at Annapolis? Would liberals consider this evidence of unsavory radical connections in MCain’s life history significant?
