Will Aaron Klein Report McCain's Ties to Khalidi?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

One key staple of Aaron Klein's anti-Obama reporting for WorldNetDaily has been his claim, first made in February, that the Woods Foundation -- at a time when Barack Obama was a member of its board -- issued grants totaling $75,000 to a group run by Rashid Khalidi, who runs "a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a 'catastrophe.'" Klein further tried to tie Khalidi directly to the PLO at a time when it "committed scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group."

Klein invoked Khalidi again in an Oct. 27 column, calling him a "pro-PLO Professor." An Oct. 28 news article by Klein called Khalidi "an anti-Israel professor who excuses terrorism."

But Klein has never reported that John McCain has similar ties to Khalidi's group as well.

The Huffington Post reports that the International Republican Institute -- chaired for much of the 1990s by McCain -- gave another group headed by Khalidi numerous grants, including one for nearly half a million dollars, dwarfing the money he received from the Obama-linked Woods Foundation.

When will Klein report this to his readers? Probably about the same time he tells his readers that McCain was endorsed by Al Qaeda
