Three weeks in Pakistan

Our would-be Commander-in-Chief Obama made a private trip to Pakistan in 1981. He was an adult, not a child traveling at the whim of his parents.

When you hear of American or European men going to Pakistan, what is usually the reason they go?

Let's review B. Hussein O.'s Muslim ties:
-at least a year of Muslim education in Indonesia where he engaged in Qur'anic studies and learned to recite properly Allah's death chant,

-a number of Muslim family members,

-ties to a monster in Kenya allied to Muslims,

-ties to an American criminal associated with a wealthy Muslim donor,

-Farrakhan-loving Irreverend Wright as 20-year spiritual mentor,

-wanting to talk with the latest Muslim Hitler in Iran,

-sympathizing with Hamas' "legitimate" concerns,

-having his Muslim outreach advisor resign over his ties to terrorism

-the DNC hosting, among others, the president of the Islamic Society of North America, an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal terrorism trial

-first affirming and then denying Israel's right to its own capital, and now,

-close friends from Pakistan (I know lots of Baptists named "Mohammed"),

-a trip to their homeland, and all wrapped up in a nice bow of secrecy.
Three weeks in Hawaii's called a "vacation." Three weeks in Pakistan? That's boot camp.

Traveling with a friend to visit his family? In light of the political situation in Pakistan at the time and Obama's other ties to Allah, it seems much more likely that rather than being a citizen of the world, Obama's a sleeper.

From here:
While at Occidental college he became close friends with two Pakistanis, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid. In 1981 he traveled with Mohammad Hasan Chandoo to Pakistan and stayed there for about three weeks. It is rather unusual for a less-than-wealthy college kid to choose far-away Pakistan as a summer break destination, but not necessarily suspicious. For some reason however, Obama has never publicly cited these relationships or his time in Pakistan. Why not?

In his book 'Dreams from My Father,' Obama does talk of having a different Pakistani roommate when he later 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.' Strangely, Mr. Obama, the campaign and his publisher have not provided any details about the identity of Sadik.
Jews Against Obama offers some important additional information (by way of Daily Musings):
Pakistan was in turmoil in 1981 and ruled of martial law. Millions of Afghan refugees were living in Pakistan, while the Afghan Mujahedeen operated from bases inside Pakistan in their war with the Soviets. One of the leaders that based his operation in Quetta, Pakistan was Usama Bin Laden . . . .

Pakistan was on the banned travel list for US Citizens at the time and all non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy for official business.

The would be only a few reasons a young Westerner of the Muslim faith would travel to Pakistan in 1981:
To Participate in Jihad, which is the duty of every “True Believer”.

For religious education in a Wahabbi sect, Saudi funded, Madrassa.

In order to purchase drugs from the drug marketplace.
Pakistan was not a tourist stop nor the place to hang out with someone’s family in 1981.
