http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | For many Americans this campaign season seems to have gone on forever. Yet with only five days until Election Day, there is still much that we don't know about Barack Obama. Among the unresolved questions:


Khalidi tape. Here's a compromise, LA Times. How about at least starting by providing a second-by-second transcript of this tape? This way you don't break your supposed agreement with your source and Americans receive the information they need.


The Times's initial story DID report Obama saying that his many dinners with Khalidi had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. For that reason, I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation." Does Obama still speak with Khalidi? What biases is Obama trying to overcome? How is Khalidi helping in that effort?


Campaign finance information. Obama has yet to release information on more than 80 percent of his contributors. Could this be because it's really more like 5 percent posing as 80 percent? (Obama's website allows contributors to use phony names, thereby allowing well-off financiers to circumvent contribution limits.)


Does Obama support or condemn Ohio state officials using government computers to rifle through Joe the Plumber's personal paperwork in a partisan hit job?


If Obama believes the Constitution provides a "right to privacy" that includes aborting babies, does this right not also protect against Joe the Plumber-styled intrusions by the state?


What exactly did Obama mean when he compared America to Nazi Germany in a 2001 radio interview?


Does Obama still believe America suffers a "fundamental flaw" that is embodied in the Constitution? What is it, exactly? How does he plan on "fixing" the Constitution?


Obama has expressed disappointment that the Constitution "imposes restraints" on income redistribution; as president, would he seek to undo these "constraints"?


When Obama says he's willing to sit down with leaders of terrorist states like Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who aspires to destroy Israel, just what exactly is Obama willing to negotiate away? Only half of Israel?


Obama said that community-organizing groups like ACORN will have a voice in setting the agenda when he's in the White House. In light of revelations over ACORN's massive voter fraud and other criminal activity, does he still plan to give them a seat at his table?


Barney Frank is proposing cutting military spending 25 percent, arguing, "We don't need all of these fancy new weapons." Obama has also pledged big cuts to defense, promising that as president he would "slow our development of future combat systems." Just how much is he planning on cutting? What weapons systems? Missile defense?
