Bombshell Barack: The Son of the CIA

Wayne Madsen Report

WMR has discovered CIA files that document the agency’s connections to institutions and individuals figuring prominently in the lives of Barack Obama and his mother, father, grandmother, and stepfather.

President Obama’s own work in 1983 for Business International Corporation, a CIA front that conducted seminars with the world’s most powerful leaders and used journalists as agents abroad, dovetails with CIA espionage activities conducted by his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham in 1960s post-coup Indonesia on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation. Dunham met and married Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s stepfather, at the East-West Center in 1965. Soetoro was recalled to Indonesia in 1965 to serve as a senior army officer and assist General Suharto and the CIA in the bloody overthrow of President Sukarno.

Barack Obama, Sr., who met Dunham in 1959 in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii, had been part of what was described as an airlift of 280 East African students to the United States to attend various colleges — merely “aided” by a grant from the Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation, according to a September 12, 1960, Reuters report from London. The airlift was a CIA operation to train and indoctrinate future agents of influence in Africa, which was becoming a battleground between the United States and the Soviet Union and China for influence among newly-independent and soon-to-be independent countries on the continent.

The airlift was condemned by the deputy leader of the opposition Kenyan African Democratic Union (KADU) as favoring certain tribes — the majority Kikuyus and minority Luos — over other tribes to favor the Kenyan African National Union (KANU), whose leader was Tom Mboya, the Kenyan nationalist and labor leader who selected Obama, Sr. for a scholarship at the University of Hawaii. Obama, Sr., who was already married with an infant son and pregnant wife in Kenya, married Dunham on Maui on February 2, 1961 and was also the university’s first African student. Dunham was three month’s pregnant with Barack Obama, Jr. at the time of her marriage to Obama, Sr.

KADU deputy leader Masinda Muliro, according to Reuters, said KADU would send a delegation to the United States to investigate Kenyan students who received “gifts” from the Americans and “ensure that further gifts to Kenyan students are administered by people genuinely interested in Kenya’s development.’”

Mboya received a $100,000 grant for the airlift from the Kennedy Foundation after he turned down the same offer from the U.S. State Department, obviously concerned that direct U.S. assistance would look suspicious to pro-Communist Kenyan politicians who suspected Mboya of having CIA ties. The Airlift Africa project was underwritten by the Kennedy Foundation and the African-American Students Foundation. Obama, Sr. was not on the first airlift but a subsequent one. The airlift, organized by Mboya in 1959, included students from Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika, Zanzibar, Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland.

Reuters also reported that Muliro charged that Africans were “disturbed and embittered” by the airlift of the selected students. Muliro “stated that “preferences were shown to two major tribes [Kikuyu and Luo] and many U.S.-bound students had failed preliminary and common entrance examinations, while some of those left behind held first-class certificates.”

Obama, Sr. was a friend of Mboya and a fellow Luo. After Mboya was assassinated in 1969, Obama, Sr. testified at the trial of his alleged assassin. Obama, Sr. claimed he was the target of a hit-and-run assassination attempt after his testimony.

Obama, Sr., who left Hawaii for Harvard in 1962, divorced Dunham in 1964. Obama, Sr. married a fellow Harvard student, Ruth Niedesand, a Jewish-American woman, who moved with him to Kenya and had two sons. They were later divorced. Obama, Sr. worked for the Kenyan Finance and Transport ministries as well as an oil firm. Obama, Sr. died in a 1982 car crash and his funeral was attended by leading Kenyan politicians, including future Foreign Minister Robert Ouko, who was murdered in 1990.

CIA files indicate that Mboya was an important agent-of-influence for the CIA, not only in Kenya but in all of Africa. A formerly Secret CIA “Current Intelligence Weekly Summary,” dated November 19, 1959, states that Mboya served as a check on extremists at the second All-African People’s Conference (AAPC) in Tunis. The report states that “serious friction developed between Ghana’s Prime Minister Kwame NNkrumah and Kenyan nationalist Tom Mboya who cooperated effectively [emphasis added] last December to check extremists at the AAPC’s first meeting in Accra.” The term “cooperated effectively” appears to indicate that Mboya was cooperating with the CIA, which filed the report from field operatives in Accra and Tunis. While “cooperating” with the CIA in Accra and Tunis, Mboya selected the father of the president of the United States to receive a scholarship and be airlifted to the University of Hawaii where he met and married President Obama’s mother.

An earlier CIA Current Intelligence Weekly Summary, Secret, and dated April 3, 1958, states that Mboya “still appears to be the most promising of the African leaders.” Another CIA weekly summary, Secret and dated December 18, 1958, calls Mboya the Kenyan nationalist an “able and dynamic young chairman” of the People’s Convention party who was viewed as an opponent of “extremists” like Nkrumah, supported by “Sino-Soviet representatives.”

In a formerly Secret CIA report on the All-Africa Peoples Conference in 1961, dated November 1, 1961, Mboya’s conservatism, along with that of Taleb Slim of Tunisia, are contrasted to the leftist policies of Nkrumah and others. Pro-communists who were elected to the AAPC’s steering committee at the March 1961 Cairo conference, attended by Mboya, are identified in the report as Abdoulaye Diallo, AAPC Secretary General, of Senegal; Ahmed Bourmendjel of Algeria; Mario de Andrade of Angola; Ntau Mokhele of Basutoland; Kingue Abel of Cameroun; Antoine Kiwewa of Congo (Leopoldville); Kojo Botsio of Ghana; Ismail Toure of Guinea; T. O. Dosomu Johnson of Liberia; Modibo Diallo of Mali; Mahjoub Ben Seddik of Morocco; Djibo Bakari of Niger; Tunji Otegbeya of Nigeria; Kanyama Chiume of Nyasaland; Ali Abdullahi of Somalia; Tennyson Makiwane of South Africa, and Mohamed Fouad Galal of the United Arab Republic.

The only attendees in Cairo who were given a clean bill of health by the CIA were Mboya, who appears to have been a snitch for the agency, and Joshua Nkomo of Southern Rhodesia, B. Munanka of Tanganyika, Abdel Magid Shaker of Tunisia, and John Kakonge of Uganda.

Nkrumah would eventually be overthrown in a 1966 CIA-backed coup while he was on a state visit to China and North Vietnam. The CIA overthrow of Nkrumah followed by one year the agency’s overthrow of Sukarno, another coup that was connected to President Obama’s family on his mother’s side. There are suspicions that Mboya was assassinated in 1969 by Chinese agents working with anti-Mboya factions in the government of Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta in order to eliminate a pro-U.S. leading political leader in Africa. Upon Mboya’s death, every embassy in Nairobi flew its flag at half-mast except for one, the embassy of the People’s Republic of China.

Mboya’s influence in the Kenyatta government would continue long after his death and while Obama, Sr. was still alive. In 1975, after the assassination of KANU politician Josiah Kariuki, a socialist who helped start KANU, along with Mboya and Obama, Sr., Kenyatta dismissed three rebellious cabinet ministers who “all had personal ties to either Kariuki or Tom Mboya.” This information is contained in CIA Staff Notes on the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, formerly Top Secret Umbra, Handle via COMINT Channels, dated June 24, 1975. The intelligence in the report, based on its classification, indicate the information was derived from National Security Agency intercepts in Kenya. No one was ever charged in the assassination of Kariuki.

The intecepts of Mboya’s and Kariuki’s associates are an indication that the NSA and CIA also maintain intercepts on Barack Obama, Sr., who, as a non-U.S. person, would have been lawfully subject at the time to intercepts carried out by NSA and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).

    Well at a minimum, someone should make a movie about all this because everyone thinks it’s fiction anyway.

    You really couldn’t dream up such a good story as this. He must laugh his head off every single nite. No wonder he thinks we should all be the cattle and in fences.

    I was shocked when I read this and I forgot to ask, what is going to be done about this? according to the last paragraph in this article on the first page :
    “The intecepts of Mboya’s and Kariuki’s associates are an indication that the NSA and CIA also maintain intercepts on Barack Obama, Sr., who, as a non-U.S. person, would have been lawfully subject at the time to intercepts carried out by NSA and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)”

    Obama is not a US person, which means he is not an American born o ftwo natural born citizens. Regardless of whether or not he is an American do you think with this background he would be able to become President? I wouldn’t think so which is exactly why they say in the constitution that the President should be a natural born citizen of two American born citizens who have loyalty only to America, that doesn’t seem to be the case here, even his grandparents were communists.

    I read things every day that show me this man is not Presidential material yet they are ignored and he goes on passing horrendous bills geared to ruin the America we know, no one seems to be able to get through our corrupt courts and yet no one seems to be able to do anything aobut that either, he has put 2 in who do not qualify for the Supreme court seat, Ruth Bader ginsberg is also a member of the CFR, she should not be in the seat either. We have no one to keep checks and balances, anyone can be President now and he can take America and put it in a position where it is losing its sovereignty and might even be dismantled. We have a group like the CFR and the Trilateral commission who seem to be calling the shots, all looking to dismantle our borders and have a one world bank, no one is keepiong tabs on this and the CFR members , who swear they have nothing to do wiht the Government but have hundreds of members throughout the Whitehouse and Senate and Congress and even the Pentagon which is against national security I would think, every Dean of every college is member of the CFR, they are treasonous yet they remain in power and can sit in hotel rooms and discuss ways to kill 3/4 of the population and not be arrested for conspiracy to mass murder us. If I ever suggested such a thing I would be in Prison right now. , money means a lot more than I thought it did. Our world is for sale.

    Fema camps should be fully explained, is this where our tax dollars are going? are we paying for places to be put into if we disagree? will we be killed there or held indefinately? I’m an American citizen, I have a right to have these questions answered yet I have no one in office who will ask them on my behalf.

    The UN is totally useless as far as we are conscerned, and inappropriate,they should be defunded by us, bringing in the enemy ot this country for mor ewars on our own soil and a UN takeover. They are so corrupt they hsould be in jail, no towning the rights to our water. Obama is putting this country in harms way at every turn, yet there he is, no one to stop him, we all knew he was dangerous at best, after this article I am not even sure if he has all of his faculties, when the teleprompter goes off he can’t think straight, it takes him awhile to gain composure, he spends no time in the oval office, his wife , our first lady , is a member right now of the Chicago chapter of the CFR, how is this allowed? soemwhere along the line we have handed over our country to a man that most people know is not legally president, and not mentally suited for the job, its obvious. He knows nothing about America or Americans, and the brainwashing education he received in that muslim school he went to has done something to his mental capacity, that constant pounding things into their brains and banging on the desk with each word as a learning tool, he can’t be playing with a full deck at this point. As a citizen I should be able to go and make a citizens arrest with all of these papers and documents I have collected over the last two years and demand he be removed , maybe with a petition, what do you think would happen to me if I did that, I’d be in the fema camp tomorrow. The UN doesn’t want anyone to own their own home, The houses and forclosures have gone mostly to China, he even gave them eminent domain in case we couldnt’ pay our bills owed to them, which means they could wind up owning most of America , this is treason. Is it not? The Chinese are taking over whole neighborhoods in NY and Brooklyn, since when is communism OK? He has lifted the embargo on Cuba and we now give them money, is it the social security money? He actually suggested giving all of our property in conservation to the Indians, we can’t use it freely but he was going to give it to the Indians, I guess he never heard of winning a war and keeping the spoils of war. nothing is fair in war. too bad.

    China and America have not had a war but they are conqering us with the help of Obama. I notice the date on this article is dated Aug, 2010, does that mean this article has been on the internet for that long, it has not been turned into the authorities,do we have any authorities? where am I? does the CIA work for us, is the FBI still aroudnd? who do we have to call, interpol? that won’t work because Prince Charles and Queen Elisabeth are all part of this, can someone please tell me what we are going to do? something, anything? We know who is behind most of this , why aren’t arrests being made, no one has so much money they can own the world, it is agaisnt nature and its not right. Its only a matter of time before the Power eltite go undergound to those swell underground tunnels they have built with our money and then we are nuked or biologically infected with something, is that what we are waiting for? If we wait much longer to do somethign we wil all be dead, I have children, this is not what I want to leave them with. So my question is, what is anyone going to do about this? Is there anything I can do besides sign another of those useless petitions?

      No one in the US or elsewhere has been able to show proof Obama is a US citizen. The latest chapter of this story was the governor of Hawaii saying that he could no produce Obama´s birth certificate because he coul not find it. The only proof he had of his alleged birth in the state was a hand written annotation and an ad from a local paper. See the article we published from the mail online here:

    • News Desk says:

      Additionally, many US presidents were a product of the CIA, including George H.W Bush. However, no one ever questioned whether they were fit or not to be presidents, because in reality presidents are handpicked in both sides of the bipartisan tyranny people call democracy in the US. This is what I like to call a false choice.

      • MadeleineT says:

        Yes George Bush worked for the CIA, but we knew that and he was born here now look what this mdmn is doing and no one can tell me this is alright, it can’ tbe no one is going ot stop all of this, he is out of his mind.

        He did this when he s a Senator here in Chicago, his cousin had just locked 50 women and children in a church and burned the church down, he won his election with the help of Obama nd his wife.We paid for this.
        I can’t believe the Supreme court and the whole Government are watching these things happen and not doing anything about it. You odn’t need birth ertificate to imeach this guy, we are stuck with the power mad UN and all of the Muslims they have been bringin gin her e and all over the world, they think they are going ot rule the world, if this keeps up they will.

      • MadeleineT says:

        Actually, George Bush Sr. was head of the CIA, that was common knowledge.
