Richard Fernandez wants to know:
Townhall links to a video in which civil rights activist Percy Sutton claimed he was asked by a certain “Dr. Khalid al Mansour”, supposed 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 the Harvard Law Review many years ago. Mansour was raising money for Obama at the time,according to Sutton, a circumstance strange enough in itself.
Here is the video of Sutton:
Amanda Carpenter transcribes,
“I was introduced to him by a friend who was raising money for him and the friends name was Dr. Khalid al Mansour from Texas. He is the principle adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama. He wrote to me about him and his introduction was ‘there is a young man that has applied to Harvard and I know that you have a few friends left there becasue you used to go up there to speak, would you please write a letter in support of him?’…I wrote a letter in support of him to my friends at Harvard saying ot them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I sure hoped they would treat him kindly.”
There are just two questions in my mind. Did a Khalid al-Mansour request Sutton to help BHO get into Harvard or the Law Review? Second, who is Khalid al-Mansour? I’m not sure BHO has anything to do with it, except as a person referred to in Sutton’s recollection.
Yet more questions on Obama.
