Obama and the CIA: According to Wayne Madsen, the White House press office has made it clear that they do not want any journalists asking about Obama’s post-graduate employment with “Business International Corporation (BIC), a global financial and political information company that WMR previously reported was a front for the CIA.”
A lot of people don’t trust Madsen. I treat him warily. To be fair, though, Madsen does seem to have gotten there first on the BIC story. Here’s what he wrote in February of 2009:
After graduating from Columbia University in 1983, Barack Obama went to work for a firm called Business International Corporation (BIC), a firm that was linked to economic intelligence gathering for the CIA. For one year, Obama worked as a researcher in BIC’s financial services division where he wrote for two BIC publications, Financing Foreign Operations and Business International Money Report, a weekly newsletter. An informed source has told WMR that Obama’s tuition debt at Columbia was paid off by BIC.
