Concern about Barack Obama
By early 2008, analysts became increasingly concerned about the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama. By this time, they had learned something about his relationship to a Lebanese businessman with ties to the Middle East and to wealthy Muslims in the United Kingdom. There was evidence to suggest that he had been subsidized by those sources since at least 1995. There was precedent for this sort of thing, as the buzz was that the Clintons had been subsidized by the Red Chinese since the early 1970's. That had continued until the scrutiny had become to strong, by the latter 1990's. The question was: "where were Barack Obama's true loyalties?" The observers at the time could only watch as events unfolded.
