View Diary: Why putting crackpot conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on television remains a profoundly stupid idea (130 comments)

    I came across a comment on another blog claiming that there's credible reason to believe that not only was Obama recruited by the CIA in college and has been working for them ever since, but that his mother, stepfather and perhaps even grandmother may have been in its employ as well, making it the family business. Apparently his mother and stepfather had something to do with the Indonesian coup that overthrew Sukarno in the 60's while her official cover was working as an anthropologist. I suppose that Obama's father recruited her in the early 60's--or maybe she married him to gather information about the Kenyan opposition and his links to the USSR. No word on whether Michelle, her mother, the girls or Bo also work for the agency.

    Biden, it goes without saying, works for the Mossad.

    One of the links cited was Jones.

    You cannot make this stuff up. Although, you have to admit that it's kind of entertaining in that supermarket checkout line skimming the National Enquirer and People magazine sort of way. Brittney gives birth to bat boy!

      about claims like that is that the CIA has been (as documented in Timothy Noah's Legacy of Ashes, among other works) totally, completely incompetent since their founding. Even in operations where they managed to do what they wanted (Iran in 1953, Chile in 1972), their footprints were so freaking huge that everyone knew what happened.
