Obama Goes to Harvard

Who Paid $75,000 For His Ticket?

Ken Timmerman of Newsmax inquires, “How did Obama pay his way through Havard?” The allegations first surfaced in late March, when former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner, al-Mansour, had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School. al-Mansour is the principal advisor to “one of the world’s richest men,” Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal. FULL STORY! http://www.newsmax.com/timmerman/obamaharvard/2008/09/23/133199.html

Percy Sutton gives no clues as to why his former partner, Khalid AbdullahTariq al-Mansour who is a lawyer, orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, author, international deal-maker, educator, and an outspoken enemy of Israel was “raising money”. “Why would he raise money to help Obama go to Harvard law school? Obama has said during his campaign that he paid his way through Harvard with student loans.” http://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/obamasuttonsaudi/2008/09/03/127490.html?s=al&promo_code=6939-1

“An Obama campaign spokesman cited a report in The Chicago Sun claiming that Obama borrowed $42,753 and Michelle borrowed $40,762 to pay for Harvard Law School and Obama borrowed “tens of thousands” more to pay for undergraduate studies at Columbia. But a Newsmax review of Senator Obama’s financial disclosures found no trace of any outstanding college loans, going back to 2000.”

“As a United States Senate candidate, Barack Obama was required to file a financial disclosure form in 2004 detailing his assets, income, consulting contracts, and liabilities. Obama listed “zero” under liabilities in 2004 and in all subsequent U.S. Senate financial disclosure forms.”

“Speaking at a campaign event in Haverford, Pa, in April of this year, Michelle Obama claimed that her husband had “just paid off his loan debt” for his Harvard Law School education.”“Under the Senate ethics rules, he is required to disclose any loan, including credit card debt, of $10,000 or more. The only exception to the reporting requirement is mortgage debt on a principal residence.”

“The Senate reports also directly contradict Michelle Obama’s claim that the couple had “only just” paid off their student loans after receiving book royalties paid out in 2005 and 2006 – well after her husband had been ensconced in the Senate.”
