Not your average friend - mixing with the very wealthy & connected & to politics and CIA and ISI & Mi6 folks in Pakistan - was  Obama really a Marxist leaning college youth or merely 'playing ' a role as a mole ? He meets the head of the Paki Senate while on vacation ...?  well groomed CIA operative from generations of operatives. Obama’s mother was a regular visitor of Pakistan....Who knows, maybe  Drew could very well be an operative too ....  but we have the right and duty to ask questions ... Here we have Obama and wealthy Pakistani  roommate Mohammed Hasan Chandoo while at Occidental College 1980 - Who  is Hassan Chando? His family is a prominent family in Pakistan with whom Obama stayed for three weeks in 1981. He is also in the higher echelon  of the Democratic party and fundraiser of the East Coast Muslims. His  mother, Gulshan Chando, is the grandniece of Ali Jinnah, the founder of  present day Pakistan. Her husband attended the same school as Pervez  Musharraf, former President of Pakistan and both belong to the same Old  Patricians Club in Pakistan. Pervez, former military leader, has formed a new political party in Pakistan, the All Pakistan Muslim League and is  seeking a move to lead Pakistan again.....  I can not vouch for Prof Dr  Drew but the picture of Obama and Chando - he had is valid; and the  people and timeframe as well   I think people especially those who so  adamantly supported or support Obama or any other candidate -  should be asking questions - blind loyalty is dangerous - if he wants another  four year term - ask questions , Democrats ask your candidate questions  ...   Democrats research your candidate   Republicans should have  wondered about the Bush Hitler Fascist connections  Republicans should  have asked more questions about the Bush ties to the House of Saud and  to oil and to CIA ops and banksters   Republicans should have asked more questions about Cheney   Democrats should have asked more questions  about Clinton    KNOW who you are voting for and defending and elevating to power - you do have a choice - you do have a responsibility and - you do have a duty   YOU have to demand and expect accountability and  transparency and honesty - not infallibility or perfection but basic  accountability and honesty  ------------------------- "....when Obama  attended Occidental College in California in 1979, his freshman roommate was a Pakistani, Imad Husain, who’s now a Boston banker. Also, as a  freshman, he quickly became friends with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo and  Wahid Hamid, two more wealthy Pakistani’s who became the reason he  travelled to Pakistan in 1981.  In Obama’s own words: [ from his book ] “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it  came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying  close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.” He added: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The foreign students. The  Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.” In 1981,  Obama went to Pakistan for about three weeks.  As a student, Obama  visited Larkana for a partridge hunting session. He traveled with Wahid  Hamid and staying in Karachi with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo’s family in  Karachi and visiting Hyderabad as well.   Obama also made friends with  Chairman of The Pakistani Senate, Muhammadmian Soomro, who said that in  Pakistan he [Obama] came to know about Sunni and Shia sects.  According  to the report of Larry Rohter of April 10, 2008, in The New York Times,  the Obama campaign staff, when questioned about the revelation of  Obama’s 1981 trip to Karachi, stated: “Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in  1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister,  Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent ‘about three weeks’ there, Mr.  Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton, said, staying in Karachi with the  family of a college friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling  to Hyderabad, in India.” " http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2011/05/08/pakistan-outs-cia-station-chief-in-islamabad%E2%80%A6/   an interesting note from an old friend of his from the 80's   ---------------------   Note - the comment by Tom Kovach (a self  proclaimed conservative talk show host www.tomkovach.us) on the picture & info - "I have said and written for almost three  years that Obama was groomed from youth to become what he is: “the  Mansourian candidate”. (great-big hat tip to Jack Cashill)http://www.tomkovach.us/ This report confirms that, at age 19, Obama was a more dedicated and  better-informed Marxist than a 23-year-old graduate student at Cornell.  (And, if you know anything about Cornell University and its home city of Ithaca, NY, then you know that it would take a LOT to be more Marxist  than almost ANYone from Cornell — but especially a graduate student in  political science.) Two points are worth noting. First, the report  specifies that Caroline Boss met and befriended Obama in a class that  started in the Fall of 1980 at Occidental College. That means that Obama could not have been residing in Hawaii at the time of his draft  registration, as he claims to have been. That is a felony. " tomkovach.us/blog/2008/11/obama_draft_scandal_deepens.html Second, for a young man that wants to make political friends, and who  was raised as a Muslim in the most populous Muslim country on Earth  (Indonesia), it is quite telling that Obama’s body language in the photo is insulting to Chandoo. He leans back (superiority), while Chandoon  leans forward. More importantly, though, is that Obama is pointing the  sole of his boot toward Chandoo. That is a huge insult in the Muslim  world. There is no way that Obama can claim ignorance. So, it would  appear that Obama “showed deference” to Chandoo when it was to Obama’s  advantage, but when relaxing for a photo-op he insults those that he is  supposedly there to honor...." http://radiopatriot.wordpress.com/2011/02/24/meeting-young-obama/  my note - they were all smoking drinking not acting like strict  anything much less Muslim but like the oil royals the rich Muslims do  not seem to practice what they preach - much like our wealthy and  powerful and rich - rarely are any of any faith 'fundamentalist ' in  practice   ------------------------------ February 24, 2011 Meeting Young Obama By John Drew  http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/02/meeting_young_obama.html John C.

Obama maintains close personal 30+  year connections with Pakistani friends (they attended his wedding 1992, and campaign for him 2007-08). Obama’s mom worked and lived there from  1987 to 1992.  Joe Biden has a connection there. Obama personally knows  the former President of Pakistan Muhammad Mian Soomro, and indeed stayed at his house during a summer visit there in 1981 and still maintains a  30+ year friendship with him.  So lets look at this angle a little  deeper.  Most Pakistanis seem to like President Barack Obama.  However,  for most, President  Obama’s “Pakistan Connections” were limited to (a)  his rather strong words about Pakistan, including about sending troops  into Pakistan, and (b) his choice of Vice President Joseph Biden, who  has a long and deep interest in foreign affairs, including Pakistan.  Most Pakistanis were/are not very fond of the first of these  connections. The second connection they like, especially because Senator Biden was the key architect of a very generous and quite sensible  support package for Pakistan.  It turns out, however, that Barack Obama  may have slightly deeper and more personal connections to Pakistan.   First, there is Barak Obama’s mother living on and off in Pakistan for  five years. It is quite clear that Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, did  indeed work and live in Pakistan as a consultant to the Asian  Development Bank (ADB), working on a project in Gujranwalla (here, here, here).   A headline in the Daily Waqt that proclaims that “Obama’s  Mother Stayed in Pakistan for 5 Years.” Here is the Daily Waqt report:   The mother of American Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama, Mrs. Ann  Dunham lived in Pakistan for five years. During this time, Barack Obama  also visited his mother and stayed for a few month. Mrs. Ann Dunham was  hired as a consultant by the Asian Development Bank for Pakistan  Agricultural Development Bankâ’s Gujranwalla Agricultural Development  Program. This program began in 1987 and ended in 1992.  Mrs. Ann Dunham  monitored the funds received for this program from the Asian Development Bank and trained the Mobile Credit Officers of the Agricultural Bank.  This program was controlled from the Gujranwalla Regional Office. She  stayed for five years in the Hilton International Hotel (now Avari  Hotel), Lahore. She travelled daily from Lahore to Gujranwalla. When  Barack Obama visited Pakistan, he stayed in the same hotel. After  returning from Pakistan, she died from cancer within three years.   Barack Obama has himself visited Pakistan. Indeed, Barack Obama may have visited Pakistan for longer than any U.S. President ever has. As so  many college students do, he seemed eager to see the world.  He was in  Karachi in 1981 as a young student, returning from a visit to his mother in Indonesia. According to a New York Times report:  …Mr. Obama also  spoke about having traveled to Pakistan in the early 1980s. Because of  that trip, which he did not mention in either of his autobiographical  books, “I knew what Sunni and Shia was before I joined the Senate  Foreign Relations Committee,” he said… According to his campaign staff,  Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia,  where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent “about three weeks” there, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton,  said, staying in Karachi with the family of a college friend, Mohammed  Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling to Hyderabad, in India.  As mentioned  above,  Obama has a number of Pakistani friends dating back to his  college days, and it was those friendships that brought him to Pakistan.  Some details, again, from the same New York Times report:  …In Dreams  from My Father, he talks of having a Pakistani roommate when he moved to New York, a man he calls Sadik who “had overstayed his tourist visa and now made a living in New York’s high-turnover, illegal immigrant work  force, waiting on tables”… During his years at Occidental College, Mr.  Obama also befriended Wahid Hamid, a fellow student who was an immigrant from Pakistan and traveled with Mr. Obama there, the Obama campaign  said.  Mr. Hamid is now a vice president at Pepsico in New York, and  according to public records, donated the maximum $2,300 to the Obama  campaign and is listed as a fund-raiser for it.  Mr. Chandoo is now a  self-employed financial consultant, living in Armonk, N.Y.  He has  donated the maximum, $2,300, to Mr. Obama’s primary campaign and an  additional $309 for the general election, campaign finance records show.  Wahid Hamid and Chandio each contributed the maximum $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, and records indicate each has joined an Asian-American  council that supported his run for president.  In addition both also  were listed on Obama’s campaign Web site as being among his top  fundraisers, each bringing in between $100,000 and $200,000 in  contributions from their networks of friends.  Both Hamid and Chandoo  also attended Obama’s wedding in 1992, according to published reports  and other friends.  An Associated Press story on Obama’s college friends has more interesting snippets. Especially his relationship with Sohale  Siddiqi, from Karachi, is fascinating – all the more to the Pakistani  reader:  The way Sohale Siddiqi remembers it, he and his old roommate  were walking his pug Charlie on Broadway when a large, scary bum  approached them, stomping on the ground near the dog’s head. This was in the 1980s, a time when New York was a fearful place beset by drugs and  crime, when the street smart knew that the best way to handle the city’s derelicts was to avoid them entirely. But Siddiqi was angry and he  confronted the man, who approached him menacingly. Until his skinny,  elite univerity-educated friend – Barack Obama – intervened. He “stepped right in between. … He planted his face firmly in the face of the guy. ‘Hey, hey, hey.’ And the guy back pedaled and we kept walking,” Siddiqi  recalls.  Obama spent the six years between 1979 and 1985 at Occidental  College in Los Angeles and then in New York at Columbia University and  in the workplace. His memoir, Dreams from My Father, talks about this  time, but not in great detail; Siddiqi, for example, is identified only  as “Sadik” _ “a short, well-built Pakistani” who smoked marijuana,  snorted cocaine and liked to party. Obama’s campaign wouldn’t identify “Sadik,” but The Associated Press located him in Seattle, where he  raises money for a community theater.  Not everyone who knew Obama in  those years is eager to talk. Some explain that they fear inadvertently  hurting Obama. Among his friends were Siddiqi and two other Pakistanis,  all of them from Karachi; several of those said the Pakistanis were  reluctant to talk for fear of stoking rumors that Obama is a Muslim. “Obama in the eyes of some right wingers is basically Muslim until  proved innocent,” says Margot Mifflin, a friend from Occidental who is  now a journalism professor at New York’s Lehman College. “It’s partly  the Muslim factor by association and partly the fear of something being  twisted.”   President Obama (Barry Sotero) and Pakistani friend Hasan  Chandio 1980  Of course, he was only 18 when he arrived at the small  liberal arts college nicknamed “Oxy.” His freshman roommates were Imad  Husain, a Pakistani, who’s now a Boston banker, and Paul Carpenter, now a Los Angeles lawyer… Obama had an international circle of friends _ “a  real eclectic sort of group,” says Vinai Thummalapally, who himself came from Hyderabad, India. As a freshman, he quickly became friends with  Mohammed Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, two wealthy Pakistanis.  In 1981 Obama transferred from Occidental, arriving at Columbia Sept. 1982. In  between, he traveled to Pakistan – a trip that enhanced his foreign  policy qualifications, he maintained in a private speech at a San  Francisco fundraiser.  Obama spent “about three weeks” in Pakistan,  traveling with Hamid and staying in Karachi with Chandio’s family, said  Bill Burton, Obama’s press secretary. “He was clearly shocked by the  economic disparity he saw in Pakistan. He couldn’t get over the sight of rural peasants bowing to the wealthy landowners they worked for as they passed,” says Margot Mifflin, who makes a brief appearance in Obama’s  memoir.  When Obama arrived in New York, he already knew Siddiqi – a  friend of Chandio’s and Hamid’s from Karachi who had visited Los  Angeles.  Siddiqi offered the most expansive account of Obama as a young man. “We were both very lost. We were both alienated, although he might not put it that way. He arrived disheveled and without a place to  stay,” said Siddiqi, who at the time worked as a waiter and as a  salesman at a boutique… In about 1982, Siddiqi and Obama got an  apartment at a sixth-floor walk-up on East 94th Street. Siddiqi managed  to get the apartment thanks to subterfuge. “We didn’t have a chance in  hell of getting this apartment unless we fabricated the lease  application,” Siddiqi said.  Neither Hamid nor Chandoo have accepted  media interviews;  Hamid is now a top executive at Pepsico in New York,  and Chandoo is a self-employed financial consultant in the New York  area. Both have each contributed the maximum $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, and records indicate each has joined an Asian-American council that  supports his run for president. Both also are listed on Obama’s campaign Web site as being among his top fundraisers, each bringing in between  $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions from their networks of friends.  Both also attended Obama’s wedding in 1992, according to published  reports and other friends.  Thummalapally has stayed in contact with  Obama, too, visiting him in New York, attending his wedding in 1992 and  joining him in Springfield, Illinois., for the Feb. 10, 2007,  announcement of Obama’s run for the White House. President of a CD and  DVD manufacturing company in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Thummalapally  also is listed as a top fundraiser on the campaign Web site. http://www.pak-times.com/2008/07/10/obamas-larkana-cnnection/
