Whether he is or not raises some very interesting questions about Moochelle.
However, on a more practical note, both Barry’s mother and maternal grandfather “the furniture salesman” were clearly employees of the CIA, and many indications suggest that his young life was entirely programmed with the idea of grooming him for a major Cold War espionage project.
It must have cost tens of millions of dollars to “prep” his identity, which indicates that he was probably intended for high level penetration in Moscow. Dozens of fake identities, SS numbers, draft registration, school records, etc. are not cheap, and doing them to such a redundant extreme, and with government cooperation, is not something an individual, or even a private organization would or could do.
But with the end of the Cold War, he was pretty much out of a job. In that the CIA is not one to get rid of such a hot property, they probably figured they could own yet another senator.
And no CIA objection to him being POTUS, either. They already had H.W. Bush as POTUS, and the Pentagon has had several generals in that job, so CIA figured it was their “turn” again. You’ll notice that in his time in office there has been almost no problems at all reported from CIA.
That he is gay? No problem. At least from their point of view.
I forgot where I read where Obama’s grandfather was described as a ‘company man’ (CIA).
