Neglected Mysteries of Obama's Background

It's a shame mainstream journalists are too busy trashing Sarah Palin to look into Barack Obama's background. Riehl World View offers some fascinating leads they might pursue regarding the trip he made to Pakistan before transferring from Occidental to Columbia:

By 1980 at Occidental Obama ran partly with a circle of wealthy, drug using Pakistani friends. He traveled to Pakistan between Occidental and Columbia in 1981. That was during the Second Military Era (1977-1988) - Pakistan was under Sharia Law and not the most welcoming to foreign visitors, especially without some graft or connections.
Based upon documented accounts, Obama seems to have also traveled the country-side, not just in the cities. By 1981 Pakistan had become the world's number one supplier of Heroin. Upon his return Obama took up residence with one of the drug using Pakistanis in a run down, presumably drug infested part of NYC in an apartment they couldn't qualify for based on income.

They had to resort to fraud on the application, because they lacked visible means to pay the rent. Where did the money come from? Why is so little known about this part of his life? Why doesn't the media look into it?

Strike that last question. The answer is obvious.

On a tip from Oiao.

Its funny how Obama admits to being a crack head but it doesnt matter. Whereas Bush is merely accused of doing cocaine 40 years ago and that somehow matters.

Obama: "I did not have idealogical affiliations with that religion, um radical muslims, in Pakistan." or "I did not have spiritual guidance from that minister, um Rev. Wright."

What I'd like to see is when he was first issued a US Passport.
