Obama Worked for the CIA

This article by Wayne Madsen seems too logical to ignore, especially based on the protection and continuation of policies of the Bush years. The man has been groomed to be deceitful (in my humble opinion), and the facts of his being a Constitutional Law Professor, is quite simply disgusting. And the war and poppy-shooting is expanding, and other dreadful deeds.

Obama Worked for the CIA

New Details on Obama’s CIA-Front Employer

We have obtained additional details on Business International Corporation (BIC), the CIA front company where President Obama spent a year working after graduating from Columbia University in 1983.

BIC used journalists as non-official cover agents around the world. The firm published weekly and fortnightly newsletters for business executives, including Business International, Business Europe, Business Latin America, and Business Asia.

On February 24, 2009, WMR reported: “For one year, Obama worked as a researcher in BIC’s financial services division where he wrote for two BIC publications: “Financing Foreign Operations” and “Business International Money Report”, a weekly newsletter.

An informed source has told WMR that Obama’s tuition debt at Columbia was paid off by BIC. In addition, WMR has learned that when Obama lived in Indonesia with his mother and his adoptive father Lolo Soetoro, the 20-year-old Obama, who was known as ‘Barry Soetoro,’ traveled to Pakistan in 1981. He was hosted by the family of Muhammadmian Soomro, a Pakistani “Sindhi” who became acting President of Pakistan after the resignation of General Pervez Musharraf on August 18, 2008. WMR was told that the Obama/Soetoro trip to Pakistan, ostensibly to go ‘partridge hunting’ with the Soomros, related to unknown CIA business. The covert CIA program to assist the Afghan mujaheddin was already well underway at the time and Pakistan was the major base of operations for the CIA’s support . . . BIC had long been associated with CIA activities. BIC was founded by Eldridge Haynes, a self-professed liberal Democrat. The BIC headquarters was located at the prestigious address of 1 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan.”

Through its contacts with leading liberals around the world, BIC sought to recruit those on the left as CIA agents and assets. BIC documents obtained by WMR describe a series of top level “round tables” between US business and intelligence chiefs and government leaders around the world, including Ethiopia’s Emperor Haile Selassie, and 83 ministers and officials of 33 multinational organizations in Addis Ababa in 1969; Colombian President Carlos Lleras Restrepo and business and labor leaders of six Andean Bloc countries in 1968 and 1972; Argentine President General Juan Carlos Ongania and his junta in 1966; Spanish dictator Francisco Franco and his cabinet in 1962 and 1967; Brazilian President Emilio Medici in 1970; and Indonesian dictator Suharto and his cabinet in 1968 and 1972.

Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, and his father, Barack Obama, Sr., met at the University of Hawaii in 1960 in a Russian-language class. At the time, the CIA and Britain’s MI-6 were concerned about Soviet penetration of Kenya’s independence movement. Kenya became independent of Britain in 1963.

After marrying Indonesian national Lolo Soetoro, Dunham moved with Barack Obama, Jr. to Indonesia in 1966, just as the Suharto dictatorship was consolidating its hold on power, which included the massacre of some 1 million Indonesian Communists. Dunham left Indonesia in 1972, returning to Hawaii with her son. Dunham periodically made trips back to Indonesia, as well as to Pakistan, while working for the Ford Foundation and the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the latter commonly used by the CIA for official cover agents.

Dunham Soetoro was in Indonesia when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979. Barack Obama visited Lahore, Pakistan, where his mother worked as a “consultant,” in 1981. According to a declassified Top Secret CIA document titled “Worldwide Reaction to the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan”, dated February 1980, Indonesia became a hotbed of anti-Soviet students demonstrations after Moscow’s invasion of Afghanistan. The report states, “Indonesian students have staged several peaceful demonstrations in Jakarta and three other major cities. They have also demanded the recall of the Soviet Ambassador because of remarks he made to a student delegation on 4 January and have called for a severance of Soviet-Indonesian relations.”

CIA files also contain a report on the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations (1971-1973), which is possibly pertinent to the agency’s involvement in Indonesia. One of the participants in the Chicago CFR’s 1971 conference in Oak Brook was Zbigniew Brzezinski, who would later become President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser, the chief architect of the US support for the Afghan mujaheddin, and one of Obama’s professors at Columbia University.

On April 27, 1973, the Chicago CFR sponsored a seminar titled “Indonesia Today,” according to the CFR Chicago report maintained in CIA files. Present were “four representatives of the Center for Strategic International Studies in Jakarta” who discussed in presented papers Indonesia’s role in Southeast Asia. One of the participants was Soetaryo Sigit, Indonesia’s Minister of Mines.

The CFR report also states that the Atlantic Conference series that attracted the same high-level participants as BIC, was started in 1965 under the auspices of CFR Chicago by Joseph Slater of the Ford Foundation. The Ford Foundation employed Dunham in Indonesia.

CIA files also contain a single page from the “Chicago Buyers Guide.” Listed on the page is the address and phone number for Business International Corporation in Chicago: One IBM Plaza, Suite 1420, 60611. 321-0300.

My guess

is that most congressional and senate offices are inflitrated by the CIA.

Obama & Osama

It does not surprise me that Obama “may” have had some sort of CIA connections in the past given his international travels and experience, but what is potentially a little bit concerning is his trip to Pakistan in 1981 while the Afghan / Soviet war was in full swing and where Pakistan was the US’s base of operation in supporting Osama Bin Laden and the mujaheddin. Especially now that Obama is escalating the Afghan occupation / war and spending hundreds of billions of American dollars in the process.

What is the source of this story, particularly Obama’s travels to Pakistan? At 20 years old I doubt that Obama would have been any serious CIA asset, but if true, it’s kind of ironic that the stated purpose of Obama’s Pakistan trip was to go quail hunting with an individual that would later become acting president of Pakistan. Didn’t Osama Bin Laden also coordinate hunting trips for wealthy Arab royals in Afghanistan? Maybe Osama and Obama do have something in common afterall.

i do not have more info on

i do not have more info on pakistan-obama connection than what was in the article, but I found much credibility in the work of investigative reporter, Wayne Madsen.

but the fact that not one president since jfk could be considered honorable to upholding and defending principles of the u.s. constitution, since they would be forced into maintaining that cover-up, and deny what is true about the false flag of September 11, 2001.

I changed the title of the Flyby News resource page from "The Bush Conspiracy and 911 Investigative Reports" to: New 9/11 Investigation vs New World Order

it will be one or the other - so while obama called a national emergency to distribute fraudulent H1N1 flu virus.. trusting such deceit could lead to a NWO plan for depopulation to sustain their (sic) plans. i am thankful that we are resisting this.. and still communicating.. but time is short..
