Obama’s Acquaintances are Dangerous
Apparently, the friends and supporters of Barack Obama are dangerous. Little Green Footballs reports that the LA Times won’t release the tape because the source could be put in jeopardy. A reader forwarded an email from the Times that reads, in part:
The Times has made it clear (last night online and in today’s newspaper) that it will honor that agreement. That is what you’d want, I would think: protection of a source in return for getting the underlying information. To break that agreement might put the source of the tape in jeopardy. Honoring the agreement allows the newspaper to continue to get information from other sources and assures those sources of information that they can come forward confidentially.
So the source would be in jeopardy if the tape is released. What the hell is on that tape? What did Obama say? What did Khalidi and others say that Obama heard? There must be something very, very bad on that tape.
Write or call the LA Times and demand they release this tape:
