Communism was definitely still HUGE in a lot of the world in the 80s when some of this grooming might have taken place. I certainly crossed paths with many people in various countries including this one, at college, who revered whatever they thought communism was.
And certainly the Soviets at the time were extremely confident about their indoctrination techniques. They deserved to be; they won over much of the youth in West Germany, and they weren’t doing badly in other European countries either.
Would they have groomed someone like an Obama to be the stealth candidate for President here? Does anyone need to even debate that?
But was Barack Obama that guy? No way to know, unless of course his school records showed him here, stateside, for all four of his undergraduate years.

Russians don’t particularly like black people, that’s what makes me suspicious. But maybe he was the only willing participant.
Probably why his college records are sealed. I wonder how popular the name "obama" is? What are the odds of this being another "obama"? This story is really strange.
