Obama's Benefactor: Dr. Khalid al Mansour, I presume ...
Percy Sutton, NYC political icon in the African American community, tells a news reporter that Dr. Khalid al Mansour solicited favor and recommendation on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama in order to secure Barack's entry into Harvard. Think about that.
During the 1950's and 1960's, Percy Sutton became one of American's best known lawyers. He represented many controversial figures such as Malcolm X and argued many cases (photo: Malcolm X and Percy Sutton at a Harlem rally on Seventh Avenue between 125th and 126th streets, 1963)
Richard Fernanadez over at Fallback Belmont has a very curious piece on the ever changing Obama narrative concerning this jawdropper revealed by Amanda Carpenter in her post over at Townhall, Are Khalid al Mansour and Obama Friends?. This bombshell story asks more questions than it answers. And Wretchard's twist on just which Mansour we are talking about is a whole other question.
Obama's mentors, friends, comrades tells us his story. These associations show us who he is. Terrible, all of it. I often wondered where Obama got the money for his long strange trip. But this, Dr. Khalid al Mansour development is .... outta hand.
Watch these videos. Stunning indictment of Mansour. He's a total racist Islamist very much in the mold of Obama's best buds Louis Farrakhan and Reverend Wright.
Check Mansour's diatribe video against the Jews here.
Video Dr. Mansour's "The Birth and Death of Christianity: posted by Muslims by choice here.
And this video, uploaded by IslamStudios and titled "Christians Designed Discrimination:"
Sutton is an unabashed Obama supporter. The last thing he would want to do is hurt Obama. And if you watch the video, it is obvious Sutton is telling the story of Mansour and Obama with great pride. And the reporter is sharing, kvelling along with Sutton. Both see nothing wrong with what he is saying.
Can any of my readers help me out here?
The Wrong Man, Sir
Townhall links to a video in which civil rights activist Percy Sutton claimed he was asked by a certain Dr. Khalid al Mansour, adviser to one of the richest men in the world to write a letter of reccomendation on behalf of Barack Obama to help him gain acceptance to Harvard many years ago. Mansour was raising money for Obama at the time, according to Sutton, which is strange in itself. Townhall identifies the Mansour in question as a preacher from Islam Studios. A video purporting to show Dr. Mansour exemplifies his somewhat comical style of preaching is featured. However, Townhall may have erred in its identification of the right Mansour. The Islamic preacher featured in the video is unlikely to have been any kind of adviser to billionaries. But this other Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tario Al-Mansours biographical details fit the Sutton profile much better. However the lack of online information on such an august man leave me a little worried. Can Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tario Al-Mansour be the man? Suttons memory seems a little vague and confused, as would be natural for a man of his age. So the identification of Mansour and his connection to Obama might be a little hazy.
Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tario Al-Mansour is an internationally acknowledged advisor to Heads of State and business leaders in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America. He has been actively involved in structuring investments and joint ventures worldwide for over 35 years. Dr. Al-Mansour was also responsible for the Africa investment activities of Kingdom Holdings, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talals investment company. During his distinguished career, Dr. Al-Mansour has been a guest lecturer at Harvard University, Bombay University, Columbia University, UCLA, University of Kenya, London School of Economics and the University of Ghana.
In addition to Africa Venture Partners, Dr. Al-Mansour sits on the Boards of: Saudi African Bank; Kingdom Holdings, Africa; Multimedia Super Corridor (Malaysia); Space Tech Inc.; AmNet Corp. International; New Avenues Fund Ltd; United Bank for Africa; United Networks; and Landmark Entertainment.
Dr. Al-Mansour has authored 24 books and is listed in Whos Who in the World; International Whos Who in the Arab World; Two Thousand Men of Achievement; Royal Blue Book of London; Worlds Whos Who of Intellectuals and American Hall of Fame. Dr. Khalid Al-Mansour has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Howard University (Phi Beta Kappa) and Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of California at Berkeley.
[...] I wonder if the readers can shed any additional light on this matter. Knowing someone at the right hand of very rich men is a great thing when youre looking for entry into law school. Sutton took Mansours advice, whoever he was, and wrote Harvard saying there was a genius who would soon be available to them. And the rest is nearly history.
UPDATE: JAD just sent me this and opined, "Al Mansour represents OPEC? No wonder Obama doesn't want the US drilling anywhere." Check it out! He's the preacher. Keep it coming folks:

UPDATE: It seems to be a common thread in Obama's liasons. Heroyalwhyness sent me this link to 2001 NYT quote:
Today, Mr. Ayers and Ms. Dohrn, 59, who is director of the Legal Clinic's Children and Family Justice Center of Northwestern University, seem like typical baby boomers, caring for aging parents, suffering the empty-nest syndrome.
Their son, Malik, 21, is at the University of California, San Diego; Zayd, 24, teaches at Boston University.
UPDATE: Herroyalwhyness is on it:
Marcia Froelke Coburn of ChicagoMag.com reveals the reason for the Ayer's childrens names:
"For two radicals once living underground, Ayers and Dohrn have raised three accomplished children: Zayd (named for a fallen Black Liberation soldier and colleague), 24, graduated from Brown University and has an M.F.A. degree in writing from Boston University, where he now teaches; Malik (for Malcolm X), 21, is attending the University of California at San Diego; and Chesa, 20, their adopted son, just finished his sophomore year at Yale University."

SENATOR OBAMA’S WESTERN-HATING OPEC BENEFACTOR
Well now we know why Obama puts down the American Oil Companies and their “Windfall” profits. He has something more powerful in his pocket. Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour.
Dr. Al-Mansour has spent most of his adult life as a businessman/lawyer, intellectual, religious activist, author and teacher. His business and professional interests include co-founding the International Law Firm of Al-Waleed, Al-Talal & Al-Mansour, representing the O.P.E.C. interest of the famous Los Angeles trial, I.M.A.W.C. vs. O.P.E.C.; and serving as a co-founder and director of the Saudi African Bank (SAB), the United Bank for Africa (UBA) and the World United Bank for Africa (WUBA).
Dr Al-Mansour is the author of over 20 anti-western society, anti-Christian and anti- Semitic Books. He is also, according to Percy Sutton, famous NYC Democrat, the guy who helped Obama get into Harvard:
Dr. Khalid Al Mansour at his web site The First African Arab Press. You'll love his book list, all written by him. He's the one all over the web lecturing against Jews and Christians. A nasty guy and yes, apparently the one who's a consultant to prominent Arab companies and persons.
He is an American, attended UC and Harvard and logically could have recommended Obama to his colleagues there. I wonder whether he ran into Obama in NY when Barry was bumming around after college in a very unsavory area with a Pakistani drug dealer for a roommate.
Fox ran a terrific show on the Character of a Candidate right before the convention started. Anyone know where I can get a copy? They even ran footage of Obama's Paki drugdealer roommate in NY.
The other al Mansour, Sheikh Dr. Ahmed Subhy Mansour, appears to be one of the very good muslims. He is Egyptian, received all of his many degrees in Egypt, and I cannot see how he would in any way be connected to Barry's entrance to Harvard. He is outspoken in his criticixm of radical islam, spent a couple of months in jail in Cairo because of it. NOT Obama's friend, I'll wager: http://www.freemuslims.org/about/mansour.php
