Are We Being Compromised by Barack Obama’s Murky Past?

American Thinker

Since  he first became a presidential candidate, President Obama must have spent  millions of dollars in legal expenses to combat dozens of so-called “birther”  challenges seeking the original documents pertaining to his birth.  As  president, he famously issued an electronic document on the White House website  in 2011; the document purported to be his long-form birth certificate, though it  is apparently a forgery.  In addition, he has taken great pains to hide the  paper trail of passport records, college transcripts, and other data — all of  which a prospective employer might require of a job applicant.

The  public’s right to know is but a minor consideration.  Our overriding  concern should be what unfriendly foreign intelligence adversaries, particularly  Russian, may have obtained on our president’s background.

Among  all the foreign intelligence agencies, Russian intelligence (SVR) has a long  history and has made a science of studying the backgrounds of American  presidents.  Therefore, we must assume that since Russian intelligence is  particularly skilled and a persistent practitioner of this  art, it is possible to the point of certainty that, using all their resources  and “black-bag” tactics, they have long had the biographical background data  that President Obama and his team of lawyers have been so diligent in concealing  from the American public.

The  Russians most likely would have started collecting data during Obama’s  university years, when he professed radical Marxist views.  They were  certainly focusing on him by the time of his celebrated speech at the 2004  Democratic National Convention.

By  that time, Russian intelligence had easy access to the true facts concerning  Obama’s birth, parentage, and childhood; his mentor (communist Frank Marshall  Davis); and his college performance, as well as who provided his finances.  They also would have obtained the  information on his passport history and his complete political career and  associates.

It  is recognized that among all the intelligence agencies, Russian intelligence is  the most skillful in looking for information and points of leverage — which are  then exploited cleverly and “gently” by Russian statecraft.

By  now, the Russians have most likely have told Obama discreetly that they have  such information.  How would they use it?  As one old Soviet KGB  operator said, “Kompromat [compromising information] is the most  powerful tool of espionage.”

Following  this thought process, take the issue of how strongly the Russians objected to  our ballistic missile defense (BMD) plans for NATO Europe to defend against an  Iranian nuclear missile threat.  Now ponder why President Obama told  Russian President Medvedev in the fall of 2012 that he would have “more  flexibility” to deal with the BMD issue in his second term which he has now  basically canceled.  Coincidence?

The  current world situation is presenting many complicating challenges to current  and future U.S. objectives.  With the Obama administration presiding over  the hollowing out of our military forces and prepared to further weaken our  strategic nuclear posture, our adversaries are being emboldened to challenge us  in a number of areas.  The Middle East is in a continued state of turmoil,  with no end in sight.  Iran continues to ignore U.N. sanctions and proceeds  with its drive to achieve nuclear weapon capability.  It dismisses the  possibility of a U.S. military strike.

In  the Pacific, we have to deal with an erratic, unpredictable nuclear-armed North  Korea, who has been making outrageous threats to the U.S. and our allies.   China continues flexing its military muscle, trying to enforce its illegal  claims in the South and East China Seas.  Closer to home, according to  Ambassador Roger Noriega, we have an operational Iranian missile base in  Venezuela which can threaten a number of our cities.  We also are  witnessing Russia reviving Soviet Cold war tactics in areas of our strategic  interest.  Clearly, we are headed into an exceptionally crucial and  dangerous round of geo-strategic confrontations which could have a profound  impact on our future objectives and way of life.

These  challenges cannot be ignored.  We are led by a man who does not believe in  American exceptionalism or our capitalist foundation.  His lead-from-behind strategy has forfeited the initiative to  our adversaries.  Under such circumstances, we cannot afford to be in a  position where our leadership is subject to compromise.
