John Pilger: On Obama. Obama worked for company linked to CIA
John Pilger is an Australian journalist and documentary maker. He works out of London UK. He was twice awarded the UK Journalist of the Year Award and he has made documentaries that have received Academy Awards in the U.S. and Britain.
The appended video examines Obama as the creation of corporate marketing and notes that he has carried on with many Bush policies. This is an older video but still interesting. In particular he notes that Obama worked for a CIA linked company after graduating from university. Of course this in itself does not prove anything directly but certainly raises suspicions about whether he himself had links to the intelligence service.
After graduating from Columbia University Obama worked for a year as a research associate in Business International Corp. a CIA front company. The company is alleged even to have paid off Obama's college loans.
Obama worked in BICs financial services division, where he edited Financing Foreign Operations, a global reference service. He also wrote for Business International Money Report, a weekly financial newsletter. According to reporter Wayne MadsenMadsen BIC through its contacts with leading liberals around the world, sought to recruit those on the left as CIA agents and assets. The New York TimesThe New York Times reported in 1977 that a BIC company official admitted providing cover for CIA employees. Again this is no definitive proof of Obama's involvement with the CIA but certainly the evidence suggests that he very well could have been.
