Hand of friendship: US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the White House yesterday on their differing approach to Iran's nuclear plans. Picture: AFP Source: AFP

Mr Netanyahu told US President Barack Obama yesterday that Israel must remain the "master of its fate".

Mr Netanyahu and Mr Obama met for delicate Oval Office talks taking place amid clear differences on the imminence of the nuclear threat from Iran and after weeks of speculation that Israel may mount go-it-alone military action.

"Israel must have the ability always to defend itself, by itself, against any threat," Mr Netanyahu said in a short, but impassioned comment to cameras at the start of a meeting with Mr Obama, with whom he has had sometimes strained relations.

Was this ever released?

Why Is the L.A. Times Burying the Obama/Khalidi Tape?
April 21, 2010

Given the extraordinary sudden turnabout in US policy toward Israel under the Obama Administration, I have become obsessed by the repressed 2003 videotape of Rashid Khalidi and Barack Obama. That tape — or so we are told — is ensconced in a safe at the Los Angeles Times building. In the current situation, its release by the paper is more important and newsworthy than ever.
The Khalidi tape could be of tremendous significance in revealing the provenance of Obama’s views on the Middle East and the degree to which the public was misled on those views during the presidential campaign.
I am writing to solicit the help and ideas of Pajamas Media readers for seeking the release of the tape to the public. But first a little background, if your memories are as foggy as mine can be.

Rashid Khalidi — a Palestinian-American historian known for his strong pro-Palestinian opinions — is currently the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia and director of that university’s Middle East Institute. After Khalidi received this Columbia appointment in 2003, a farewell dinner party was held in his honor in Chicago. A videotape was made of that party where many good things were said about the Palestinian cause and many bad things about Israel. Then Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama was in attendance, as were, some say, William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

That tape, as Leon DeWinter reminded us, was given at some point by an unknown person to Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times. Wallsten then reported on some of its contents in a brief LAT article of April 10, 2008 titled “Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Obama.”

Dont think so. Even in 2008 Andrew McCarthy and others were calling for release of the tape.

And Sam Donaldson said LA Times should NOT release the tape. On October 30 Sam Donaldson said " Posted ImageMy guess is that if everyone saw the tape -- and it's just a guess -- it wouldn't change a single vote at this point."


Maybe not, by this point, all the dirt on 666 was hidden from view of the public.

When was Sam Donaldson put in charge of deciding what would and what would not change votes?
