    He traveled there with an Indonesian Passport. Obama admitted to traveling there himself in his book.

    After graduation from Occidental College, in 1981 Obama and his Muslim Pakistani roommate Wahid Hamid went down to the biggest Muslim populated countries. First, Indonesia, then onto Karachi, Pakistan and Hyderabad India, where Obama stayed with his Muslim friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandio.

    In 1981 Pakistan was under Martial Law for the fifth straight year. The entire country was under Sharia Islamic Law.

    What is interesting to note is that Christians and U.S.citizens were prohibited from entering Pakistan during this time.

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

    There would be only a few reasons a young Westerner of the Muslim faith would travel to Pakistan in 1981:

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

    So what it begs the question WHY was he there in the first place?? Plus Indonesia didnt recognise dual U.S. citizenship at that time..not till 2007,as did the U.S.

    What are you talking about? Of course US citizens were free to travel to Pakistan in 1981. At the time General Zia was pretty tight with the West in supporting the Afghan rebels against the Soviets. As a country sharing numerous borders with either China or Soviet satellites Pakistan was seen as an important ally in stopping the spread of communism.

    He traveled on his INDONESIAN passport- he says so in his on book. Why don't his "loyal supporters" know this? Or can they not process information that is incriminating to their messiah?

    I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college — I knew what Sunni and Shia was before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Obama said during a fundraiser in San Francisco.

    In 1981, Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia and then traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there.

    Illegally with Osma Bin Ladin.

    Barack Hussein Obama has more questionable figures in his past than Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby and Sirhan Sirhan combined.
