Obama’s Pal Khalidi Reacts On 9/12/01

While perusing Mr. Obama’s comments in the archives of the Chicago Public Radio defunct program, Odyssey we came across the timely comments of one of his mentors, Rashid Khalidi:

September 11, 2001

No Odyssey broadcast due to coverage of the attacks in New York and Washington D.C. Subsequent shows cover the issue in detail.

Reaction to the Terrorist Attack

September 12, 2001

Listen to the Entire Program

David Strauss – Professor in the law school at the University of Chicago

Rashid Khalidi – Director of the Center for International Studies and a professor of history at the University of Chicago

Robert Pape – Professor of political science at the University of Chicago

Obama’s associate Rashid Khalidi calls talk of revenge for 9/11 an “idiot wind.”

He calls for restraint and understanding — of our enemies. Instead of being driven by anger and fear — which will only make the situation worse.

His reaction on the day after 9/11 sounds remarkably like what most of the US-hating left would be saying in years to come.

Obama’s other colleagues at the University of Chicago are not much better.

They are all terribly concerned about our leaders over-reacting. And they are worried that we might become more “exclusionary” in our xenophobia.

It is absolutely appalling.

And it is all too telling about us the rabidly anti-American culture that Mr. Obama comes from.

    Restraint? Restraint? I believe we showed extreme restraint! To quote Sean Connery in the Untouchables “They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.” Only on a much larger scale. They take out a ship we take out a navy, they take down two buildings we level two cities.

    This is supposedly a clip from the tape the LAT refuses to release. Don’t know if it is true but it sure sounds like it is.

    Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can’t release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.”

    It would be really controversial if it got out. Tha’s why they will not even let a transcript get out.

    I believe that alot of Americans need a history lesson on America. People have forgotten what we stand for. McCain is trying to remind us. This guy has more class in his little finger than that other guy will ever have. He could of ran Obama threw the wringer with all his associations but he is a better man than that. He hashope in the American people that our country will not be blind to all the money and cheap talk Obama has been trying to feed the American people. Wake up please America and see the BS before its to late……..
