    From Politico:

    John McCain's campaign is demanding that the Los Angeles Times release a video of a party for a prominent Palestinian activist that Barack Obama attended in 2003.

    The Times described the going-away party for former University of Chicago professor, and Obama friend, Rashid Khalidi, in a story in April. The story reported that Palestinians thought they might have a friend in Obama because of his friendships in that community, despite the fact that his positions have never been particularly pro-Palestinian.

    "A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi," said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb, citing Obama's friendship with Khalidi, who is now a professor at Columbia University.

    Good luck with that... If they do I'm sure Obama and Biden ban the LA Times from any press conferences.... You don't mess with Lord Vader... I mean Lord Obama.

    This is going to come out sooner or later. Obama needs to explain himself. Rashid Khalidi, while a Palestinian, wrote a book about how these people could help themselves by putting down their bombs and their weapons and start being responsible for themselves.

    Of course, people are going to jump to conclusions: Obama friend with an Arab = Obama an Arab and a terrorist. The mentality of some people is ridiculous.

    Obama needs to go out there and do a pre-emptive strike against this. There is likely another copy of this tape and I am sure Matt Drudge is doing everything he can to find it.

    It's frightening to think that Obama has the support of Jews and Palestinians. The horror of it all if he turns out to be the key to middle east peace.

    you know, you say you're an obama supporter and I kind of believe you but you come up with some of the most ridiculous bullshit, it rivals anything I see from the right quite honestly.

    What does Obama need to explain? are we now going to question him going to a going away party for a fellow professor? does this also show poor judgement?

    it's getting ridiculous the bullshit the McCain camp and their followers are coming up with.

    lol the guy was a spokesmen for the PLO during the 70's an d80's which were behind supported Terrorist Orginzations.

    I would think eh would need to expain himself.

    It's amazing that even if a Democrat such as David comes out and says something you guys attack your own kind.

    You're like a praying mantis, you eat your own.

    It's pathetic, you think your canidate shouldn't answer to anyone.
