"No-one knows who I am," he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month."

During his 1987 visit to Kenya, Barack Obama met with his youngest half-brother, George -- the son of Obama's father and a women the senior Obama lived with before he died.
Obama describes the hastily arranged meeting with the boy outside a schoolhouse as awkward and "painful," reminding him of his own father's visit to him in Hawaii after years of absence.
"I took comfort in the fact that perhaps one day, when he was older, George, too, might want to know who his father had been, and who his brothers and sisters were, and that if he ever came to me I would be there for him, to tell him the story I knew," Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father.

All i care about is WHERE this name is coming from, and WHAT is its signifigance...
All this silliness about Barack Hussein Obama’s middle name is an embarassing display of American ignorance about the outside world. Hussein is as common a name in the Middle East as Samuel is in the West.
Yes, there was an evil, despotic tyrant whose last name happened to be Hussein, but there was also an enlightened unelected leader in the Middle East who was as strong an ally of the U.S. as we have had in the region.

I'm sorry but he is a half-brother that he has barely seen and you dont know what the live of the man is. He could be a thief, a rapist, a murderer who knows.
I'm not there to know the specifics but I think you shouldn't jump,into conclusions if all the details are not out. Me personally I wouldn't bring into my house a long lost relative of which I know nothing about, unless I really get to know the person.
