The Manufacturing of a President:
The CIA’s Insertion of Barack H. Obama, Jr. Into the White House

By Wayne Madsen


By Lawrence Sinclair, LSNews

This book covers Barack H. Obama, Jr’s rapid rise in American politics and the role that the CIA played in propelling him into the White House. Research is based on formerly classified CIA and State Department files, personal interviews, and international investigations. Obama’s birth certificate has never been the issue. The real issue, which affects his eligibility to serve as President of the United States, is his past and likely current Indonesian citizenship. The reader will be taken through the labyrinth of covert CIA operations in Africa, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and other regions. The real history of President Obama, his family, and the CIA quickly emerges as the reader wades into the murky waters of America’s covert foreign operations.

  1. Obama never was a citizen of Indonesia, as a telephone call to the Indonesian Embassy in Washington will confirm.
