Posted on 05/02/2012 12:18:02 PM PDT by Nachum
It only took nearly six years for the media to begin vetting President Obamas past.
Today, Vanity Fair released an excerpt from a new biography of Barack Obama by David Maraniss. The excerpt discusses Barack Obama's first love affair, with a white Australian woman named Genevieve Cook. It's a telling examination of who Obama was as a young man -- and it shows a self-absorbed "internationalist" with delusions of grandeur.

The book itself sounds like an ode to Obama. Maraniss writes, At age 20, Obama was a man of the world He could not be of one place, rooted and provincial. No, says Maraniss, this was a broadminded young man who knew the ways of different cultures better than he knew himself.
When he first moved to New York, he was in the midst of an affair with Alexandra McNear, a girl from Occidental. They exchanged a series of purple letters with one another turgid missives from overfevered young minds. Here, for example, is tendentious Obama explaining poetry to his young girlfriend:
I havent read The Waste Land for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statementsEliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality. And he wears a stoical face before this. Read his essay on Tradition and the Individual Talent, as well as Four Quartets,

So was Johnny Appleseed.
” - - - The most telling part of this expose, however, lies in Obamas friends and actions. All of Obamas friends were Pakistani Hasan Chandoo, Wahid Hamid, Sohale Siddiqi, Beenu Mahmood.”
Does anybody know how many of these “friends” are still alive, and where they are today?
That’s interesting, I didn’t know. I used to read poetry a lot and always liked Yeats’ poems.
Your photo analysis shows a woman known to be 5'7" with a man who is no more than 5'10".
The man is not Obama-Soetero who is 6'1".
In addition to the over-large head, we see it extends to cover where a normal man's neck would be--perhaps concealing a "typically white" neck"--
--to go with the hand holding the cup.
Exactly. Such a poor job but like all else released it doesn’t seem to matter!
Actually the feet extend the parallel lines of the lower legs evoking Leonard Cohen's Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye:
Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
Which vibe is in no way evident in any Obama-Soetero photo op with any woman save perhaps Ellen.
Oh really? He must yearn for some down time with the code pink freakazoids.
Her face is top-lit, his face is side-lit.
His head shadows don’t match the rest of the pic.
Same Jessup as Commie girl’s family???
Hey, wheres the BARF warning?
Not only did the bamster eat dog he dated them too!
Im not buying any of it. Youd think she would have come forward quite a while ago.
‘Re-vetting wars: Obama’s girlfriends speak’
One of the foremost concerns of the Obama re-election effort is the promised re-vetting of Obama, playing off the widespread perception that the media utterly failed to investigate the reality beneath the highly manufactured identity peddled in 2008. Thus, there is a need to preemptively define the process, creating a safer version of re-vetting than the Breitbart-is-here blogosphere threatens.
Thanks very much for the ping; thread. GRRRREAT thread! Thanks to all posters.

Read it all BUMP!
See also post 222, 286, and 290, 304 on same thread re activities of Siddiqi and other Obama associates from Obama's early days. [TOO MANY POSTS TO MENTION: must review this thread]:
BTW: That is also the thread/post that started it all with the fingers in the Sohale Siddiqi/Obama photo.
Another early thread worthy of note:
Posted one week later than previously mentioned thread. Again, too many posts of note. Must skim through to appreciate.
Of possible interest to thread:
Yep, the know hes a Commie...but they also know he’s a Nancyboy...THAT is what they are trying to cover up. Drip...drip...drip...it’s coming out anyway.
The marking along the top of tree line I did indicates that the trees all grew at approx the same rate, meaning they are the same type of tree.
Tree growth varies greatly with some growing up to 3-4 feet per year. Most however are 1 - 1 1/2 feet per year.
So I have estimated the story height of the Park Plaza of 12-15 feet. Meaning these trees grew about 24-30 feet from the time the BHO pic was taken to 4/3/2011 when the other pic was taken.
From 1982 to 4/3/2011 is approx 29 years.
So it would appear that the pic with Zippo in it was taken around the time he was supposed to be at Columbia. We just don't know who is wearing that jacket.
An observant freeper once commented that the floating hand looked like Stanley Armour’s other hand, inverted.
This one, Mohamed Moustafa, received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer and Systems Engineering from Ain Shams University (ASU), Cairo, Egypt, in 1993 and 1997 doesn't give his age...possibly the same but doubtful imo.
Interesting that most of the pictures in the “Barack’s Missing Girlfriends” thread have been removed from Photobucket or other sources - all I get is error messages or the red x
...One quote from Miss Cooks diary relates their intimate bedroom encounters this way: I open the door, that Barack keeps closed, to his room, and enter into a warm, private space pervaded by a mixture of smells that so strongly speak of his presence, his liveliness, his habitsrunning sweat, Brut spray deodorant, smoking, eating raisins, sleeping, breathing. The poetic commas are all hers by the way....
funny that, they are living together and he has his own room? Well, it could have been him, didn't Mookie and the girls say he smells?
You’re not wrong, right now the only thing that’s real is the jacket...I think it first appeared in Central Park where it looked new. Then it shows up in Kenya in that photograph in which he is standing forward of the two Luo he claims are half-brothers...and now we see it again in an image beside Geneveive Cook, BUT IT’S NOT HIS HEAD!
Hmmm...you don’t think they would deliberately do that - enlarge his head and put it back on his shoulders just to give us something to do...? Why? Because it keeps us focused on the Geneveive story, and takes attention away from the Reggie Love fiasco that’s breaking in the background?
I think the height is fine, it’s the head that’s far too large.

The headline said accountant.
What is posted in the newspaper could be irrelevant.
It appears the Stepfather is of the family that was protected by Kennedy by doing an end run around the Senate. The one targeted by McCarthy.
It’s possible her husband was an accountant and then went for another degree.
It is also possible he had nothing to do with accounting and that was just the front.
I am sure there are many people with that name in Egypt.
photographs supposedly taken on the same day...same clothes.
Either they’re getting really poor photoshoppers, and/or trying to do things in a big hurry, and/or trying to disctract us as you say. I think they’re rushing and getting a bit desperate.
Which year were these photos supposedly taken in Kenya? If he really went there, these people all knew he was a fraud. Money must have been widely distributed.
His head is so large it’s grotesque, he doesn’t have a neck...yes, I do believe he was in Central Park on his own, wearing the same jacket and ring, he is shown sitting on Bow Bridge with the Plaza Hotel and a lake in the background, he was inserted between the Dubhams on the bench...and yes, in Kenya the jacket does look somewhat older, and the full Kenya group is posted now, it’s still on the web, see Google ‘Obama in Kenya’
I think you might agree this issue is a little more complicated than the simple age of a jacket, or how long you have been wearing yours.
Good find! Looks promising.
Has anyone associated “received a masters degree in education from the Bank Street College of Education” ...with Bill Ayers? Do the dates fit?
Haven’t found a graduation date for her.
AYERS: received his masters degree in 1984. Staying on there, he worked as an instructor while working on a doctorate in curriculum and teaching, which he completed in 1987.

Does anyone believe those are Obama’s letters? Wouldn’t he repeatedly say, “I” instead of “you?”
Personally, I don’t care to think much about Barry’s sex life, because whoever or whatever he’s done it with, he probably puts mirrors up to watch himself in the throes of pleasure.
I think Sohale Siddiqi calls himself Hal Siddiqi and last heard of, was working for a theatre selling tickets in Seattle.
I’ve seen that look on a number of black guys with white girlfriends, and he certainly considered himself black at that time. It’s a look that says, “I own this.”
Interesting tree-lines. Up until today I never doubted that the image of zero sitting on what looks like the region of Bow Bridge with the lake and the Plaza Hotel in the background was real...they needed him in various poses to create one that was just right to insert between the Dunhams on the bench.
What you can’t be certain of now is, does that head belong to the body and the jacket? Maybe only the jacket is real...
Ask yourself, if that image of big headed zero was real, and it was him to start with, why tamper with it? Just to give us something to focus on?
Interesting wiki link you posted upthread. Looks like she has the right connections, married a muslim - they moved to Cairo where he studied further, wonder how the ‘arab spring’ is working out for her. Muslim brotherhood, sharia, multiple wives etc...nothing a fellow muzzie wouldn’t do for a ‘brother’ to further the cause.
It looks like his skinny arms - he's wearing the ring, but he's got a neck like a plucked chicken.
Holy CR@P, grey_whiskers!!! Here I am stuck late at my shop, and I took a quick break to inhale a sandwich... I’m stuck with nothing but my wife’s diet Dr.Pepper with which to wash it down... (I normally refer to that stuff as diet carbonated prune juice!) I have a just taken a big drink when I scroll down see a giant little Asian soldier in uniform, standing between hobbits. A new keyboard is in order at this point...
The father of McCarthy’s target was Henry Harris Jessup
Strong connections to Beirut
Full Disclosure: I once recall hearing that the Soviet Unio had one of their main battle tanks designed such that the gunner had to be five foot tall or shorter (or somesuch)...and consequently had manpower problems supplying enough gunners.
Methinks they should get together with the Norks and swing a deal.
I have a confession: I saw that here on FR; if I recall correctly, that was actually a *North Korean* photoshop of one of their soldiers being escorted by a couple of ROK troops. They photoshopped him to hide the NK-malnutrition-induced lack of growth among NK soldiers.

Ayers returned to school to study early childhood education at Bank Street College of Education and received his masters degree in 1984. Staying on there, he worked as an instructor while working on a doctorate in curriculum and teaching, which he completed in 1987...
The bride, who will be known as Mrs. Moustafa-Cook, graduated from the Emma Willard School and Swarthmore College, and received a master's degree in education from the Bank Street College of Education.
something isnt adding up..besides the obvious..
The Stepfather of Mystery Woman was quite influential.
He even has a moot court competition named after him.
“An international law moot court competition, the Philip C. Jessup Cup, is named in Jessup’s honor. It is held annually in Washington D.C. and is attended by law students from around the world”
He acted as a character witness for Alger Hiss. In 2001 NY Times said it was quite likely that Hiss was a Soviet Agent.
This is more than just a simple girlfriend...
cover for Obama even back then..
I have no idea but the mystery is even more mysterious..
Cook’s mother wrote
“Court Arts of Indonesia “
Also several books on Cambodia
Strong connections to Beirut
Now that doesn’t surprise me:
Henry Harris Jessup (18321910) was an American Presbyterian missionary, author, and a founder of the American University of Beirut.
And it won’t surprise you either, will it, David?
Oops, I meant Character Witness for Hiss was the FATHER of Cook’s stepfather.
Like everything else in the myth, the truth is obscured with fabrications, inventions, a snippet of fact here and there, etc.
