In 2009 Barack Obama bowed to the Saudi King.
Now we may know why.
Instapundit reported this BOMBSHELL today:
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.”
Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour is a Muslim lawyer and a black nationalist who made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended the latter for admission to Harvard Law School in 1988.
Before becoming a Muslim, al-Mansour in the 1960s was named Don Warden. He was deeply involved in San Francisco Bay Area racial politics as founder of a group called the African American Association. A close personal adviser to Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, al-Mansour helped the pair establish the Black Panther Party but later broke with them when they entered coalitions with white radical groups.
Al-Mansour has been an adviser to Saudi billionaires who fund the spread of Wahhabi extremism in America… Al-Mansour is an outspoken hater of the United States, Israel, and white people generally.
Glenn Reynolds added:
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?
It looks like it.
