No comprehension problems here. You clearly tried comparing the reactions to Bush's C.I.A. leadership
to the reactions regarding this claim,
as if their "C.I.A. connections" were somehow on the same level (deserving of the same "HUGE uproar"). Your attempt to distort those two into
somehow deserving of the same "HUGE uproar" is what's disingenuous.
First, "CIA front companies" are still companies with humdrum employees going about everyday boring business. Without such, they wouldn't make
worthwhile "fronts" for operatives doing actual clandestine work. Again, one of your own sources states "According to a lengthy article in the New
York Times in 1977, the co-founder of the company told the newspaper that "Eldridge Haynes [the other founder] had provided cover for four CIA
employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960"." Clearly this occurred before Obama was even born; so he certainly wasn't one of these four
Second, half of your sources make no mention of any
C.I.A. connection to BIC at all. If this is the angle you're trying to push, then choose
more sources that actually support your insinuation.
Third, Wayne Madsen states, about BIC, "It was later determined that this company had very close ties to the C.I.A." after mentioning that Obama
worked there in 1983. "Later determined" seems to be an odd claim when the NYT reported a '55-'60 "connection" to the C.I.A. in 1977; so it was
reported a full 6 years prior
to Obama even working there. He also cites no sources regarding the word-of-mouth "Indonesian Passport"
If you're trying to push some sort of Obama/C.I.A. connection, then you'll need to do a much better job. All of this seems pretty shabby in regards
to evidence. It seems your best bet would be to try and focus on the '81 Pakistan visit, and who he met with. Incidentally, that would have been a
year before Regan actually dedicated the Space Shuttle Columbia launch to the mujahideen “freedom fighters”; so maybe Obama was ahead of the
