I think the Prez was going by the Barry Soetoro handle back then. Except for the Afro, Barry’s face hasn’t changed much at all, so surely someone would recognize him. We also know from Barry’s own mouth that he travelled to Pakistan back when Americans weren’t allowed to go there in the 1980s, allegedly to visit his mother. At least one person has died trying to expose Barry’s passport details. Also, our Govt. was providing arms and training to Afghanistan to use against the USSR invaders in the 1980s (anyone seen “The Beast”?).
Now, we’ve been invaded from within and we won’t even admit it or believe it.
Christ, not this again. There was never any travel ban to Pakistan. Not in the 1980s. Not ever. There was a State Department advisory at that time. What the advisory said was that you could get a tourist visa when you got to the airport in Karachi, but that if you were going to cross the border from India you had to get one beforehand, because they didn't give them out at the crossing. That was the extent of the State Department's travel advisory. It's also worth noting that at the same time this alleged travel ban was in place, Ronald Reagan was sending billions in military and economic aid to the Pakistani goverment.
Some police officers in Dekalb, Georgia checked out Obama's online records and received a nasty little visit from the Schutzstaffel, err, Secret Service over it.
Makes me wonder what the SS did to the police officers' permanent records during their "investigation."
Americans were certainly allowed to travel to Pakistan then. The State Department merely issued an advisory that Americans needed to get a 30-day visa before they arrived. That has morphed into an internet rumor that there was a travel ban.
