Thank you, there was no ban.
The Legend in His Own Mind probably used a US passport. He could have used a Kenyan one has he still had Kenyan citizenship (until his 21st birthday), but I doubt he did. It would not have made any sense since a US passport was easier to get.
Didn’t the Chosen One say that he never had a passport until he was elected to the US Senate?
I guess one question is what was the name on the passport he used. When Obama applied to the Illinois bar, he swore that the only name he had ever used was Barack Hussein Obama. I suspect that the passport he used on the trip had a different legal name. And, if there was a visa, in what name was the visa issued?
It would depend upon what his legal name and nationality was in 1981. In 1980 he was still the adopted son of Lolo Soetoro, named Barry Soetoro, and his mother claimed in her divorce pleading that Lolo was legally obligate to continiue educational support for the son ‘beyond the age of eighteen’. So, when Barry entered Occidental college in Fall 1979, he was legally still Barry Soetoro, though we as yet do not know if he games the entry system by claiming his U.S. citizenship from before he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro and made an Indonesian citizen. We also do not know if he gamed the system by claiming his British citizenship he was born with. And I think that is the way the demcorat party wants it, hidden from public knowledge. Ancillary to that line of questrioning is why Barry had someone steal the kindergarten entry file from Hawaii ... what could have been in that file that Barry didn’t want known by the public?
