The reason it is important is because we have heard that Khalid al-Mansour had funded Obama's college education, though until now, there had been no corroborating evidence.
Here you go, Obama's college education was funded by Saudi money.
- Frank Marshall Davis: Confirmed member of the Communist Party USA and writer. Worked in Chicago until he moved to Hawaii in 1946. Wrote for publication sympathetic to CPUSA known as the Chicago Defender. A heavy influence on Barack Obama's young life for several years. CPUSA ID Number was 47544.
- Vernon Jarrett: Began working at the Chicago Defender in 1946. Became a colleague of Davis and worked with him on at least one Communist cause in 1948.
- Valerie Jarrett: Daughter in-law of Vernon and thought to be Barack Obama's closest and most trusted adviser. Born in Iran, where she lived until the age of five. Appears to have befriended the Obama family after hiring Michelle before the first lady married Barack.
- Percy Sutton: Former attorney for Malcolm X who revealed during a television interview in 2008 that years earlier, he had been approached by a man named Khalid al-Mansour, a former Black Panther, and asked to use his influence to help get Barack Obama into Harvard. Sutton also divulged that al-Mansour represents one of the richest men in the world. This is believed to have been a reference to Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal.
- Khalid al-Mansour: Formerly a Black Panther who carried the name Donald Warren. Converted to Islam and found a lucrative career advising members of the Saudi Royal family, in particular Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Videos of al-Mansour on YouTube indicate he is virulently anti-Semitic.
- Prince Alwaleed bin Talal: Very wealthy Saudi Prince who has a strong business mind and extremely familiar with western culture. Second-largest shareholder of Newscorp., the parent company for Fox News. It is believed that his influence is responsible for Fox's overall weak coverage of radical Islamic individuals and groups.
So far as I know, this 1979 column has not previously been brought to light, but it certainly should be because it broke some very interesting news about the “rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions.” The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, “It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.”
Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer — Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.
Al-Mansour told Jarrett that he had presented the “proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz” in September 1979, and that “the first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December.” Maybe so, but I looked high and wide in newspapers in 1979 and 1980 for any other stories about this aid package funded by OPEC and never found it verified.
You would think that a program to spend “$20 million per year for 10 years to aid 10,000 minority students each year, including blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians and native Americans” would be referred to somewhere other than one obscure 1979 column, but I haven’t found any other word of it.Of course, what this means is that if Khalid al-Mansour, Percy Sutton, and Vernon Jarrett are all to be taken at their word, their accounts - which span over nearly 30 years - all make sense when taken together.
Here is that Percy Sutton interview from 2008, in which he talks about having been contacted by Khalid al-Mansour circa 1988, only 9 years after al-Mansour told Vernon Jarrett about just such a plan:
