Wayne Madsen Reports
has 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 (NOC) 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 and 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."
"Your assignment, sir, should you choose to accept it, is to take the radical anti-democratic program of the Bush Republicans and give it the imprimatur of the Eastern Intellectual Establishment. All the travesties of the Cowboy White House - suspension of the Constitution during a War Without end, the normalization of inhuman 'interrogation' practices, Federal assistance in Wall Street's theft of trillions from America's middle class, politicization of the Justice Department, and neutering of the Peace Movement - your job will be to subsume these abominations within the mainstream of bipartisan consensus. Your background and race, your ability to inspire trust and hope make you uniquely qualified for this task.
"If you say 'yes', you get to wear the Royal Robes and entertain dignitaries from your throne in the Oval Office. If you say 'no', we must advise you that your name may appear on a list of People who Know Too Much."
Disclaimer: The inset paragraph is the truth, apparently well documented, about a suspicious connection between Obama and the CIA. The second part is this author's fantasy, a stab in the dark, an attempt to understand how it has come about that a man who many progressives identified as one of our own came to betray the American People, his constituency, and the Constitution in just the first 11 months of his presidency.
