Obama's Saudi Sponsors

If you, like many of us, have been wondering how Barack Hussien Obama, a virtual nobody from Hawaii, could end up attending Ivy League schools and running for President on the thinnest resumé in American history, Newsmax may have provided another piece of the puzzle. Barry isn't going to like it...

Newsmax has learned that, as early as age 25, Barack Obama was well-known by and well-connected to a radical African-American Muslim lawyer, black nationalist and Israel hater from Texas named Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour. He has authored a number of books, filled with anti-American rectoric that would make Jeremiah Wright proud. The connection was revealed by Percy Sutton, former borough president of Manhattan, in this interview...

Al-Mansour is also a key adviser to a Saudi billionaire, Prince Alwaleed, and mentored the founding members of the Black Panthers. It is the Saudi connection that is especially troubling. From the Newsmax piece (all emphasis added ~Ed):
But al-Mansour’s sponsorship of Obama as a prospective Harvard law student is important for another reason beyond his Islamic and anti-American rhetoric and early Black Panther ties.

At the time Percy Sutton, a former lawyer for Malcolm X and a former business partner of al-Mansour, says he was raising money for Obama’s graduate school education, al-Mansour was representing top members of the Saudi Royal family seeking to do business and exert influence in the United States.
At the same time, he was also advising Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in his U.S. investments, and sits on the board of his premier investment vehicle, Kingdom Holdings.

Prince Alwaleed, 53, is the nephew of King Abdallah of Saudi Arabia. Forbes magazine ranked him this year as the 19th richest person on the planet, with a fortune in excess of $23 billion. He owns large chunks of Citigroup and News Corp., the holding company that controls Fox News.

Prince Alwaleed's Kingdom Foundation has given millions of dollars to Islamic charities in the United States, including some whose leaders have been indicted on terrorism charges. He has also donated millions to Harvard and other major U.S. universities for creation of Islamic studies departments and was the generous benefactor who bailed Michael Jackson out financially after child-molestation accusations left him in bankruptcy. He is also invested in a frighteningly large portfolio of companies, including Kodak, Pepsico, Hewlet-Packard, Motorola, e-Bay, Fairmont Hotels, Proctor & Gamble....View the list here - watch the scroll; the links do not work.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of the Los Angeles-based Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), says these revelations about Obama’s ties to Saudi financiers were a real wake-up call. “I think there’s more to this story and to Barack Obama than we realize,” Peterson said. “As all the truth comes out before the election, I don’t think he has a chance. I can’t see American’s taking that kind of risk.”

I have long suspected that Mr. Obama was not entirely what he seemed - and that his meteoric rise was due to more than his charm, intelligence and ability to read well from teleprompters. These revelations would seem bolster the apprehension that Barack Obama is a "Manchurian Candidate" for a new generation. Someone, or perhaps several someones, is orchestrating this man's life. At least one of them appears to be a member of the Saudi royal family. Some of the 'men behind the curtain' also seem to have control over large segments of the media.

All this begs the question, is Barack Obama a tool of Riyadh? If the prospect doesn't scare you, it should. America had better find out, and soon.
