British Press Begin the Obama Purge
February 25, 2008 • 10:54PM

Four major articles published in the British press over the past 48 hours support Lyndon LaRouche's assessment Barak Obama will be dumped by the British. London Sunday Telegraph 2/24: "Barack Obama criticised over 'cult-like' rallies," comparing Obama's political rallies to "the hysteria of a cult, or the fervour of a religious revival." London Sunday Observer 2/24: "The week the Obama backlash started," says that "a media backlash is now showing clear signs of gathering pace," and that "All over America, reporting teams are now investigating Obama's record." London Times 2/25: "America starts to sober up from a heavy dose of Obamamania." London Times Online 2/25: "Barak Obama embarrassed by billionaire link to home deal ... Exclusive: British-Iraqi billionaire lent millions of dollars to Barack Obama's fundraiser just weeks before an imprudent land deal." The story raises the question of whether an earlier $3.5 million loan from Nadhmi Auchi to Antoin Rezko in May 2005, "made it possible for the Obamas to purchase a mansion they could otherwise not afford."

As EIR and Lyndon LaRouche declared in its Feb. 15 issue: "British Have Obama By the Short Hairs."
