Obama

Manchurian Candidate

Part 2

Communist, Soviet, Russian ties

 Let’s begin with something simple.

Obama’s parents first met in Russian class

“In a Russian class at the University of Hawaii, she met the college’s first African student, Barack Obama. They married and had a son in August 1961, in an era when interracial marriage was rare in the United States.”
From the NY Times

This may mean nothing, but it sure is interesting. No single puzzle piece is significant until the puzzle picture begins to emerge.

Frank Marshall Davis mentored Obama in 1970’s

“The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities

Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several Communist front organizations,” Kincaid said. Kincaid noted Obama has admitted attending “social conferences” and seeing Marxist literature. “But he ridicules the charge of being a ‘hard-core academic Marxist,’ which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.”

“Decades ago, the CPUSA had tens of thousands of members, some of them covert agents who had penetrated the U.S. government. It received secret subsidies from the old Soviet Union,” Kincaid wrote.

Davis defended communists
(From an article that downplays Davis’ communist ties)

“Mr. Davis constantly defended the 11 top United States Communist officials recently convicted in New York on charges of conspiracy to advocate the overthrow of the Government by force and violence. One of Mr. Davis’ comments on the case was as follows : “I feel strong sympathy for the Communist minority who are being oppressed for their political beliefs.” (Honolulu Record, October 20, 1949, p. 6).”
“Mr. Davis has signed a number of statements in behalf of Communists under the sponsorship of the Civil Rights Congress; one of these defended was Gerhart Eisler, notorious Communist international agent who escaped jailing for passport fraud by fleeing to the Soviet sector of Germany.”

Note passport fraud above. Sound familiar and suspicious?

Key witness in passport fraud case fatally shot

“key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District church, the Metropolitan Police Department said yesterday.

Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found late Thursday night slumped dead inside a car, in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast, said Cmdr. Michael Anzallo, head of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division. ‘

Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981
From the Philip Berg lawsuit
“53. Furthermore, Obama traveled to Indonesia, Pakistan and Southern India in 1981. The relations between Pakistan and India were extremely tense and Pakistan was in turmoil and under martial law. The country was filled with Afghan refugees; and Pakistan’s Islamist-leaning Interservices Intelligence Agency (ISI) had begun to provide arms to the Afghan mujahideen and to assist the process of recruiting radicalized Muslim men–jihadists–from around the world to fight against the Soviet Union. Pakistan was so dangerous that it was on the State Department’s travel ban list for US Citizens. Non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy for official business. A Muslim citizen of Indonesia traveling on an Indonesian passport would have success entering Indonesia, Pakistan and India. Therefore, it is believed Obama traveled on his Indonesian passport entering the Countries. Indonesian passports require renewal every five (5) years. At the time of Obama’s travels to Indonesia, Pakistan and India, Obama was twenty (20) years old. If Obama would have been a U.S. citizen, which he was not, 8 USC §1481(a)(2) provides loss of nationality by native born citizens upon “taking an oath or making an affirmation or other formal declaration of allegiance to a foreign state…after having attained the age of eighteen years”, in violation of 8 U.S.C. §1401(a)(1). Since Lolo Soetoro legally acknowledged Obama as his son and/or adopted Obama, Obama was a “natural” citizen of Indonesia, as proven by Obama’s school record.”

In 1981 Pakistan had millions who had fled Afghanistan. The Soviets controlled the Afghan government.

Soviet invasion and control of Afghanistan, from Wikipedia

“The Government and political structure of Afghanistan had been copied from the Soviet model. As with all communist states, the communist party had supreme power in the government. The party members got all the government positions in the country. When the Parcham took governmental power in Afghanistan, the governmental structure was not altered. The biggest change was that the Khalqies was forced of from their governmental positions and replaced by Parchams.

When the Soviet Union occupied Afghanistan in 1979 they killed Khaq leader Amin and replaced hin with Babrak Karmal the same year. Karmal’s government was more or less a puppet government for the Soviet Union. The Soviets took total control over governmental politics after the invasion until their withdrawal in 1989.[32]“

What does this mean?

Obama has kept much of his life hidden. We know little of Obama’s 1981 Pakistan trip. It is obvious that there were plenty of soviets in the area. Did Obama meet with them during his trip? We may never know.

Obama has close ties to his leftist, Marxist cousin, Raila Odinga

“Raila Odinga’s politics, like the politics of his father, Odinga Odinga, are on the far left. Raila Odinga was educated at the Technical University in Magdeburg in east Germany, where he graduated in 1970″

“with a degree in mechanical engineering. There he heard Fidel Castro lecture and he named his first born son Fidel”

“By supporting Odinga, Senator Obama is also seen in Kenya as siding with the extreme left wing of Kenyan politics, going back to the overt communism of Odinga Odinga. Odinga’s current party, the Orange Democratic Movement, or ODM, is a leftist-socialist political party that stops short of being openly communist.”

Barack Obama visited Kenya in 2006 and campaigned for his cousin, Raila Odinga, a member of the radical ODM party. Obama also criticized the Kenyan government. Obama’s actions in Kenya are a possible violation of the Logan Act. Here is a video of Obama and Raila Odinga:

“Obama Manchurian or Mohammedan Candidate?”

“CFP pondered how it was possible for a senator to emerge from the fog to land himself on the pages of USA Today where he was touted as “the new face of change and reform for the Democratic party?””

“”What if Obama is engaged in pious fraud? This is a Muslim practice of pretending not to be Muslim to further the cause of Islam or to “defend the faith”. He becomes President and then says, “Gee…I think I want to be Muslim again” after he finds the “football” in his hands that carries the launch codes for the USA nuke forces.”

“Is this media darling in reality a brainwashed man?”

Obama, Chavez and Russian vessels off coast of Venezuela

“As of today, September 7, Chavez has announced he is making some similar deal himself  with Russia off the coast ofVenezuela. Just to be sure we got the point he threw in one of his demeaning anti-American insults.  Notice these wheels have been in motion – spurred on by obama – since May of this year.”

“Obama gets Russia on track”

“Russia’s Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as “my new comrade“”

“The Russian president contrasted Obama as “totally different” to his predecessor George W. Bush, whom he blamed for the “mistake” of U.S. missile shield plans fiercely opposed by Moscow.”

“In their London talks, Obama and Medvedev launched a milestone quest to slash their nuclear arsenals, hoping to reverse the worst slump in the former foes’ ties since the end of the Cold War.”

“”Yesterday I spoke about this with my new comrade President Barack Obama,” Medvedev said.”
Read more

The following exerpts tie all of this together and explain the Communist Party’s objectives and how Obama was exposed to them. Remember, much of Obama’s exposure took place prior to his trip to Pakistan in 1981.

“In a dossier posted on the America’s Survival blog Herbert Romerstein, a former US government security investigator, records how Moscow micromanaged the CPUSA. In 1935, Moscow instructed it to establish a CP apparatus in Hawaii to develop a mass revolutionary movement there and promote the withdrawal from its territory of US forces – at that time essential for the defence of the US. This Hawaii CP network was perceived by government bodies to be a major threat to US national security.

A key figure was Harry Bridges, a CP agent and head of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union. In 1948, Frank Marshall Davis came to Hawaii at the suggestion of Bridges and another secret CPUSA member, Paul Robeson. Dr. Kathryn Takara, a professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii, herself a radical poet and Obama supporter (and who takes issue with some of the claims made about Davis and Obama) wrote her dissertation on Davis and spent much time with him between 1972 and his death in 1987. In an analysis, Takara notes that he brought ‘an acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world’ and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism,  colonialism and exploitation. He espoused freedom, radicalism, solidarity, labor unions, due process, peace, affirmative action, civil rights, Negro History week, and true Democracy to fight imperialism, colonialism, and white supremacy. He urged coalition politics.”
“As Kincaid reports, Kathryn Takara has said that Obama was introduced to Davis by his grandfather Stanley Dunham, who considered Davis a ‘strong black male figure’ and thought he exerted a ‘positive’ and significant influence over Obama during his high school years. In her view, Davis was just such a black role model for the young Obama and gave him ‘a sense of believing that change can happen’ through ‘living in a diverse world’. The problem was that Davis believed ‘change’ could best be achieved through Stalinism.”

“The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.”

 

“Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle. Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.’

Not surprisingly, therefore, this underground ‘mole’ has been backed to the hilt by American Communists. In 2004, the Chicago Communist Party backed his successful campaign for the Senate, as the People’s Weekly reported:

Activists from Illinois were immersed in the campaign to elect Barak Obama to the U.S. Senate. Obama won a landslide victory in the March 16 Democratic primary. If Obama wins in November, he would be only the third African American senator since Reconstruction. ‘This was a historic victory. It was a victory for political independence and grassroots, coalition, and issue oriented politics over the machine and money,’ said John Bachtell, Illinois CP district organizer.’

And as the Columbia News Service reported, the Young Communist League has mobilised to campaign for Obama: doubtless the Democratic Party is less than anxious to divulge to the nation this particular affiliation of these young activists who are helping it get out the Democratic vote.”
 
“In his most recent post on the subject, Cliff Kincaid reports that Obama has now acknowledged a personal relationship with Frank Marshall Davis. But in a riposte to allegations about his radical associations, his camp has nevertheless misleadingly edited an article to conceal the fact that Davis was a member of CPUSA. This is less than surprising since, as Kincaid also notes, the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee issued a report in 1956 declaring:
‘Founded in September 1919, the Communist Party of the United States of America is an organization unique in American history. It is not a true political party and differs fundamentally from all political parties in this country. It is in fact a Russian-inspired, Moscow-dominated, anti-American, quasi-military conspiracy against our Government, our ideals, and our freedoms.’ In 1982 testimony, FBI assistant director for intelligence Edward J. O’Malley testified that the CPUSA has been ‘one of the most loyal and pro-Soviet Communist Parties in the world and has unfalteringly accepted Soviet direction and funding over the years.’ The recent book, Comrade J, based on interviews with a Russian spymaster at the United Nations, documents that Soviet intelligence operations against the U.S. continued even as the Soviet Union collapsed and Russia emerged in its place.
Camp Obama might also have a few problems with this recent account in the UK’s  Daily Telegraph, which reported that Davis was also a pornographer and sexual deviant who was into sado-masochism and even the seduction of a 13 year old girl:
On other occasions, Mr Davis would cruise in Hawaii parks looking for couples or female tourists to have sex with. He derived sexual gratification from bondage, simulated rape and being flogged and urinated on. He boasted that ‘the number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle’ and wished ‘America were as civilised as, say, Scandinavia’. He concluded: ‘I regret none of my experiences or unusual appetites; for me they are normal.’
Ah yes, redefining deviancy as normality, the agenda indeed of Gramsci/Alinsky: patron saints of community organisers, apostles of deeply underground mole-like revolutionary Marxism, architects of the wildly successful undermining of western morality and society in America and Britain — and now poised to embed itself in the White House, epicentre of the oppressive global capitalist regime, itself.”

Is Barack Obama a Manchurian Candidate?

Is Obama being controlled and influenced byCommunists in Russia or other countries?

Part 1 provided well documented ties from Obama to many leftist, socialist and radical people and organizations.

Part 2 has provided Obama’s long time ties to communists and the Communists Party of the United States.

Part 3 will provide evidence that the Russians helped place Obama in power. If you are already not freightened for this country, Part 3 will take you there.

Why Barack Obama should be indicted

Part 3

One or more of the following events should happen:

  • Obama steps down.
  • Obama is forced to prove eligibility.
  • Obama is indicted and/or arrested.

If one of the above does not occur within a few months,
perhaps we should look to the Declaration of Independence
or Thomas Jefferson, for our next strategy.

 

Yesterday, Thursday, December 11, 2008 the Citizen Wells blog posted
an article that ended with:

“Since Barack Obama is attempting to sneak through the election
process with a great many legal questions clouding his past and
since the American public needs and depends on the Judicial Branch
of government to protect it from criminals and imposters, I
Citizen Wells, on behalf of the American public, ask that Mr.
Patrick Fitzgerald or any authorized employee of the US Justice
Department, present Mr. Barack H. Obama with an indictment and/or
Criminal Complaint at the earliest possible moment, with time being
of the essence. The Electoral College meets next week and it is
imperative that we do all that is in our power to prevent a
constitutional crisis in this country.”

Barack Obama’s role in rigging the IL Health Facilities Planning Board
by reducing the number of members from 15 to 9 and therefore allowing
Tony Rezko, Stuart Levine and Rod Blagojevich to control the board with
only 5 members, is examined in detail. The indictments and criminal
complaints of Rezko, Levine, Blagojevich and Weinstein reveal their
involvement in board corruption. Obama should be indicted as well.

Citizen Wells plea to Patrick Fitzgerald and US Justice Dept.

Today, Friday, December 12, 2008, Patrick Fitzgerald’s office at
the US Justice Department was notified by telephone call and fax
of the Citizen Wells article and request to indict and/or arrest
Barack H Obama. In addition to Patrick Fitzgerald, the following
USDOJ employees were listed to be copied on the fax:

API, African Press International, Michelle Obama tapes, Telephone conversation, Philip J Berg, Fox News, Citizen Wells update, Citizen Wells opinion

When I first reported on the alleged Michelle Obama telephone conversation
with API, African Press International, and the alleged tapes of the
conversation, several people asked why I reported it. My answer was
simple. It is news no matter how it plays out. It is still news and I
believe reveals more attempts by the Obama camp to create diversions and
lies and discredit those questioning Obama, the “messiah”.

I waited to give the story a chance to play out before making judgement.
However, some new insights have been provided to me. Below is what I
believe API is about and up to. Once again, this is what the facts lead
me to believe. API has 24 hours to repudiate what I state with facts.

  • When I first read the API allegations, I immediately posted a comment
    on their blog and asked if they could prove it.
  • I have never stated that I believed the story. I did offer to help them.
  • Philip J Berg offered his service to API on the condition that API
    provide the tapes.
  • According to a reliable source, API has not provided the tapes to Mr. Berg.
  • According to a reliable source, API has not provided the tapes to Fox News.
  • According to a reliable source, Mr. Berg is not cocounsel with any attorney in this matter. API posted this comment on October 27, 2008: “Due to the sensitive nature of the tapes, API will now have a total of 3 active legal representatives. A Canadian born Lawyer has been appointed to head the API legal team. Two US born lawyers (Attorney Berg) and (Attorney Dowd of Washington) will be assisting the Canadian born Attorney.” Either API is lying, someone is confused or this is a smokescreen.
  • I was notified recently, that API approved a comment that made lying,
    slanderous accusations about Citizen Wells and other bloggers. API moderates all comments. API will be held accountable as well as the person posting the comment. I contacted API and have received no response.

Therefore, I have come to the following conclusion:

No tapes exist.

The story about Michelle Obama contacting API is a fabrication and is
a ploy by API, the Obama camp and probably Raila Odinga.

The allegation by API is straight out of the playbook of the Obama camp
and Odinga’s ODM party. Diversions, lies and personal attacks.

Part of the plan was to portray those questioning Obama as racist and to
discredit others such as Philip J Berg.

The API site and article were used as a forum to get traffic and promote
the Obama camp agenda.

Here is a remark from Jeff Schreiber:

“Yes, I know that African Press International is once again trying to stir the pot by stating that the notorious Michelle Obama tapes will be released by Fox News within the next few days. Yes, I know that Bill O’Reilly claims to have “big news” this week. No, I do not know if the two are related, but I suspect not.

Please note that I still do not believe that the Michelle Obama tapes really exist. It just doesn’t make sense, any of it. That being said, I would happily–HAPPILY!!–admit that I am wrong once I, and the rest of the American public, hear otherwise. If I am wrong, professionalism be damned, I will post a goofy picture of myself, grinning from ear to ear, and admitting my error.

And that’s all I have to say about that.”

In Conclusion, my response is based on facts and logical conclusions
combined with suspicions based on Obama’s Kenyan connections. My
statements are not definitive and are open to repudiation by API.

API, if you have any facts to repudiate what I have written, please
supply and I will post them.

Judge Surrick ruling, Philip J Berg lawsuit, October 24, 2008, US Constitution, Obama ineligible to be president, Middle East, Libya, Kenya, Obama threat to US, Uphold Constitution

Judge Surrick will provide a ruling any minute on the Philip J Berg lawsuit that states that Barack Obama is Indonesian and ineligible to be president. Lawsuit outcomes are hinged on very tight legal wordings and the burden of
proof placed on the plaintiff. Regardless of legal wrangling in court,
regardless of the ruling by Judge Surrick, the US Constitution must be upheld and those charged with upholding the US Constitution must do so and be held accountable. This includes Barack Obama.

Here is what we know:

  • The DNC did not vet Obama.
  • The MSM has supported Obama and not vetted him.
  • Obama has documented long time close ties to corruption in Chicago, Illinois and the Middle East.
  • Obama has close ties to Dubious connections in the Middle East and
    Africa. Three people close to Obama, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan and Raila Odinga, have visited Libya.
  • Obama traveled to Pakistan when he was young when travel to Pakistan by US citizens was restricted.
  • Obama was born in Kenya.
  • Obama was adopted by his stepfather, Soetoro, became an Indonesian
    citizen and studied the Koran.
  • Obama and the Obama camp stole the Democratic nomination from Hillary Clinton using voter fraud and illegal campaign donations.
  • Obama has lied about most aspects of his life and past associations,
    including, but not limited to, his socialist party connections and Acorn involvement.

With the exception of the Kennedy assasination, Citizen Wells has never
been much of a conspiracy theorist. However, given the body of evidence,
I am inclined to believe that there is a Middle Eastern, radical Muslim,
connection to Obama, perhaps Libyan, that intends to destroy the US
from within. Too many events and associations have come into focus
to ignore this possibility.

Barack Obama, regardless of his many dubious connections, is not eligible
to be POTUS. Irrespective of any lawsuits in court, the US Constitution
must be upheld. Citizen Wells and the American public will hold all
accountable. Citizen Wells will provide an article soon that will
provide insight into upholding the US Constitution.

Obama removal, Obama not eligible, Obama Indonesian, Philip J Berg lawsuit, Andy Martin investigation, Hawaii Supreme Court, US Constitution, Logan Act, Jerome Corsi, Obama removed soon

The burden of proof in court cases can be very difficult to achieve.
Philip J Berg has a lawsuit filed August 21, 2008 that states that Obama
is a citizen of Indonesia and not eligible to be president. The lawsuit
is alive, has entered a new phase and according to Mr. Berg, will be
taken to the US Supreme Court if necessary. Up until now, Obama has
not been vetted by the DNC or the MSM. However, the truth about the
real Obama is slowly emerging. The DNC and state election boards have
been in control of the election process. Citizen Wells contacted the
NC Board of elections and discovered that they were aware of the Berg
lawsuit and stated that they got their cues from the DNC. However, there
is a watermark of vetting that is in place and supersedes state law and
election traditions. The US Constitution. As we work our way through the
election process, the US Constitution and Federal Election Laws will
factor more in the determination of eligibility.

There are several “show stoppers” in the limelight today regarding Barack
Obama, his eligibility, judgement and associations. Here are some of the
prominent controversies:

  • The Philip J Berg lawsuit states that Obama is Indonesian and not eligible to be president. A reliable source just indicated a ruling is imminent. According to Jeff Schreiber, “Because Barack Obama and the DNC failed to answer or object to his request for admissions within the mandatory 30-day period, Berg says, the admissions are admitted by default”
  • Andy Martin, a journalist, writer and investigator, has been in Hawaii
    for several days and has filed a request with the Hawaii Supreme Court to access Obama’s birth records.
  • Obama is traveling to Hawaii, allegedly because of his Grandmother’s
    health. However, due to Obama’s consistent pattern of deception and
    lies, coupled with the Berg lawsuit and Martin investigation, many are
    questioning Obama’s motives.
  • Jerome Corsi, author of “ObamaNation”, was in Kenya recently and deported by the Kenyan government. Mr Corsi returned with new evidence of the agenda of Obama’s cousin Raila Odinga and the ODM party and Obama’s meddling in Kenyan affairs. Obama was criticized by the Kenyan government for his 2006 trip to Kenya.
  • New revelations surface each day of Obama’s strong ties to William Ayers, a domestic terrorist, and Acorn, which is currently embroiled in voter fraud investigations in numerous states.
  • Tony Rezko is talking and all the people indicted as a result of the Rezko trial and investigations have connections to Obama. FBI mole. John Thomas, refuted Obama’s earlier claims that he did not have much contact with rezko.
  • Obama was not vetted by the DNC or MSM. However, as the election proceeds, various participants in the process will be held to the standard of upholding the Constitution. The Citizen Wells blog will provide more on this in the coming days.

So, which of these controversies and events will put an end to the deception
by Obama and the DNC. The collective wisdom of the founding fathers
impresses me more than ever. Will the safeguards put in place many years
save this country. If we follow their lead, the country will survive.

API tape, African Press International, Philip J Berg lawsuit, Berg represents API, Michelle Obama tapes

Jeff Schreiber, of America’s Right blog, contacted Philip J Berg and discovered that Mr. Berg is representing API, African Press International, in regard to releasing the tape of the Michelle Obama phone call. Here is what Jeff Schreiber found out:

“I asked Philip Berg, via e-mail, whether or not he thought the API/Michelle Obama tapes were real and whether they would in fact be released within the next day or so as Chief Editor Korir maintains. His answer was simple, and firm.

“Yes,” Berg wrote.

I will say that there is more to this that I simply cannot report. Still, keep checking here for updates. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed, and know that I am doing the same.”

“UPDATE — October 20, 10:00am:

That’s right. The news that I could not report last night is that Philip Berg, the same man who filed suit against Barack Obama in federal court, has been retained by African Press International to handle the legal ramifications of distributing the purported Michelle Obama tapes stateside.

“They came to me, and they want me to do it,” said Berg, who maintains that he has not yet heard any tape himself, but mentioned that API is saying that they “have more information than what they already released.”

Further comment, Berg said, will be reserved until after he hears the taped evidence.”

API, African Press International, Announcement, Michelle Obama tape, Legal hurdles overcome, Release to US media channel

API, African Press International, made an announcement today, Sunday, October 19, 2008, that they have overcome legal hurdles and will release the Michelle Obama tape to a US media channel. Here is the API announcement:

The major hurdle that threatened to block the release of the Michelle Obama’s true interview tapes has now been removed.

Posted  on October 19, 2008
The legal hurdles that API feared in connection with the release of the tape has now been settled. The American people has soon to be treated to the truth about the true personality of their (probably) incoming first Lady.
API is soon to conclude an agreement on which of the media channels in the US is to air the Michelle Obama tapes. This has come about because many news channels have shown great interest in getting the tapes so that they air to the American people before the elections.
Many Americans are waiting and we promise to satisfy their desire very soon. The delay in releasing the tapes is due to two things:
1. The legal issues that may arise after we release the tapes.
This one has now been cleared and API feels safe and is no longer in fear when it comes to a legal battle that may come when the information gets out.
2. Choosing one media channel to air the tapes in the USA.
When we wrote the story, many people contacted us asking for the verification. At the same time, many media outlets have contacted API and would like to be the sole network to air the tapes. What we are finalising now is to come to an agreement with one channel that will have to air the tapes unedited.
After noticing the desire that has been exhibited – to have the tapes out, may be you Americans would like API to air the tape through a particular news channel. Your advice will be appreciated.
We are aslo seeking to agree with the particular channel that we will finally choose to give the tapes to, that they study the US laws properly so that we are not sued. Some have informed us that there are some states in the country that do not have laws that the Obama’s can use in attacking API. It may be wise that the tapes get aired in such a State to avoid court cases being filed against us.
The important thing we are discussing with the US news networks is if they are ready  to take the whole responsibility incase the Obama camp reacts using the courts.
We understand the desperation some people may have due to the delay that has been exhibited by us, but API is interested in being safe after the release of the tapes and this seems to be acchieved now.
Some who have been impatient have called us so many names. That does not bother us much because we know we have the information.
When people say API is not known or that it is a small thing, we get surprised. People must never forget that all the huge media networks started somewhere small and became what they are today. Credibilty is not our fear. Failing to bering forth the truth is wah twould bother us, and yet we know that we will accomplish.
The urgency of the matter is known to API, but we wish to state that we are not served with a sistuation that will destroy us even if  we have to move slow but sure, so that any loopholes that may give anyone a chance to take us to court is closed tightly.
We are about to reach the end of this saga and all those who favour the truth will rejoice. We know we will also hurt many who will see us as a news agency that interfered with the US politics. We believe, however, that where there are two competitors competing against one another one will win and the other will win, in cases of course where a draw is not an option.
It is important now for us to inform the readers that any perosn or persons sending us comments ¨which contain some bad word or words will not be published. We will only continue to release serious comments with no abusive language.
