Look, I met him in 1980 in Hawaii, 3 months after coming back from Mombassa, and the guy I met told me he was born in Mombassa, raised in Indonesia, was living in Hawaii with people who were not his parents, and called the older black gentleman who was working at the time, POPS.
I remember the smile, the ears, and I remember going back to the barracks to get my friends photo albums to go back to Waikiki to show him his nation of birth, his city of birth. They all refused to go, so, I never went back.
but I KNOW what I heard and why I remember it.
Obama clearly told me he was born in Mombassa.
There is NO ONE ELSE in Hawaii at the time who could have said that honestly.
