At Australia’s Daily Telegraph, Tim Blair says: “Peter Wallsten, hand over that tape.”
Contact the Los Angeles Times and demand that they release this video.

Please note: the existence of the tape is not in doubt. In his article from last April, the Los Angeles Times’ Peter Wallsten said explicitly that they possessed a copy of the tape: Allies of Palestinians see a friend in Barack Obama.
At Khalidi’s going-away party in 2003, the scholar lavished praise on Obama, telling the mostly Palestinian American crowd that the state senator deserved their help in winning a U.S. Senate seat. “You will not have a better senator under any circumstances,” Khalidi said.
The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The Times.

In September 2004, LA Times reporter Peter Wallsten tried his best to discredit bloggers who exposed Dan Rather’s fraudulent memos, insinuating that the whole thing was a Republican plot: Mainstream Media Gets Their Smear On.
