Barack Obama’s assertion today that there are more important things to worry about than the place of his birth is technically accurate. As we have documented since the very beginning of his presidential campaign, the birther issue is, in the main, a distraction, a smokescreen designed to whip up a frenzy that has effectively concealed a much bigger story, the history of the CIA creation Barry Soetoro.
The story of the poor son of a Kenyan goat herder who lived in a tin-roofed shack, who made it good, a product of the unwavering American dream, is compelling. But it is just that – a story, a fantasy, a fiction.
We will likely never know the full history of Barack Obama, because his first official act as president on January 21, 2009 was to seal the release of his records with an executive order.
