I stumbled apon an story on one of my daily reads -- My Pet Jawa that argues no.
It lead me to an article on the Canada Free Press website that is beyond compelling.
Is Barrack Obama's personal history (the one we have been told, at least) greatly exaggerated and/or completely invented? According to some sources it may be.
If nothing else, it may give you a bit more understanding on who he is, considering there has been a concerted, yet subtle effort to keep much of his past hidden.
A must read.
