President Obama’s True Identity

I don’t speak Arabic or have have any training in the language beyond what is in popular culture and media. One thing I know is that Arabic is spoken across most of North Africa, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and Syria amongst others countries in the Middle East. But Arabic has influenced and infused with other languages such as Farsi and Urdu. Another reality is that Western languages have difficulties and inconsistencies westernizing Arabic words. For example, if you have been keeping up with the civil war in Libya you would have noticed that there are about five or six different spellings for Muammar Gaddafi. In some articles he is Gaddafi, Ghaddafi, Qaddaffi, Kadafi, Laffy Kadaffy, etc. The Christian Science Monitor delved into the correct spelling of the name of the Libyan leader. Another similar example is the name Muhammad. By some estimates, the name Muhammad is the fasting growing boys name in popularity. I know of at least four or five different spellings of Muhammad, such as Muhamed, Mahomet, and Mohamed.

When growing up President Barack Obama actually adopted a western name to be identified. For years he was known as Barry instead of Barack. If you research the name Barack, the name is a variation of the Arabic word Baraka, which can be translated to “blessed one.” In fact, Mubarak is another form of Barack or Baraka. President Obama full name is Barack Hussein Obama II, well at least that is what Americans believe is his full legal name. His actual birth name is unknown because he and his administration have keep his birth certificate under lock and key which most Americans can conclude he is hiding aspects of his true identity.

There is no denying that his name is Arabic and that his father was a Kenyan Muslim. Now a letter written by Gadaffi to President Obama has surfaced where Gaddaffi addresses the president as “Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama.” Could this be President Obama’s true name? President Baraka Hussein Abu oumama II. Is Baraka Hussein Abu oumama the name on President Obama’s real birth certificate?

The Disinformation War in the Media

I’ve lost all faith in the media. On one side they don’t actually do much journalism anymore, they are cowed into not reporting information that has not been deemed ‘declassified’ so they are left reporting press releases and Facebook status updates and they are always ready to take credit when they ‘investigate’ a lead on Twitter. Andy Carvin, the senior strategist at NPR, recently ‘debunked sloppy reporting’ about possible Israeli-made weapons in the civil war in Libya. Oh, by the way, it’s a full scale civil war. It’s not a protest, uprising, opposition, rebellion, it’s a full scale civil war that is functioning as a proxy war between regional super powers but you won’t hear about that in the news either.

An image surfaced in Facebook of a mortar shell used by Ghaddafi forces on the rebels with a insignia that to me immediately looked as a ‘star of david dangling from a parachute.’ I don’t read Arabic, but it seems that those that posted the image are claiming this to be irrefutable proof that the Libyan government are using Israeli munitions on its people. Andy Carvin took it amongst himself to prove this wrong using his journalism degree by just reposting the link on his Twitter account. LOL. This is is journalism in the age of social media, putting up your twitter account and reposting links. You can read the timeline of how Andy Carvin unearthed the fact that the shell is “most likely British made” and the graphic is probably an iconography describing the purpose of the shell. The icon of what seems like the star of David depicts indicates that it’s a flare.

Mortar Shell in Libya

Mortar Shell in Libya

If you look closely at the image in question, you can deduce the function of the shell from the label and icons on the shell. It reads “81 mm M ILLUM PARA L 20A L2Y.” The shell even includes the lot number. Anyone with common sense can know that this image doesn’t necessary mean that Israeli is backing or has backed the Libyan government.

Even thought this seems like common sense, it’s apparently not common sense for journalists like Andy Carvin who is taking credit of his ‘findings’ and social media mad hatter skills of Twitter, Google, and Facebook to ‘debunked sloppy reporting’. What is sad, is that he doesn’t dig deeper than these shallow findings. For one, from the ‘intelligence chatter’ that I am picking up, a great many of the rebel fighters think they are rebelling against their government because they have been told that it’s backed by Israel. The propaganda of this image in pro-Arab Facebook groups and Andy Carvin’s investigated journalism seems to confirm this. Someone is telling the rebel fighters that Israel is involved. The question is who is feeding this anti-Israel and anti-Ghaddafi propaganda to the rebels? Andy Carvin should also following up on why we are actively involved in Libya’s civil war but do very little to prevent the massacres taking place in the Ivory Coast.
