I never tried to delve into the truth of this. I believe that the undisputed known facts are so appalling, and so ignored, that there is no point in using my limited time, energy and brainpower in speculating on what lies beyond my knowledge.
However, a blogger named Joseph Cannon did that work for me. What he found is, shall I say, very interesting, although, as he himself wrote, not absolutely conclusive. Here are links to Cannon’s posts on this topic.
The money: A spooky story. (2008)
Spies, lies, Barry and his mom. (2008)
Obama’s parents and the CIA (2012)
Shadow government (2016)
As Cannon notes, all his evidence is circumstantial. It is not proof. But if true, it explains a lot—especially why President Obama gave impunity to torturers and other war criminals, and waged an unprecedented war on whistle-blowers. There would be just too much that the CIA had on file that Obama couldn’t afford to have known.
My own attitude toward Obama is not based on speculation as to what he and his mother did in the 1970s and 1980s. It is based on his record as President.
Obama is what he is—someone who has continued the Bush policy of invading foreign countries that do not threaten us, someone who claims the right to order the death of anyone he says is a threat or a potential threat to the nation, someone who has recommitted the country to endless war.
