Memories of Barry

This video interview (and its associated translation), conducted in Bahasa Indonesia, is posted on YouTube (I couldn't listen to it).

It is accompanied by the following  translation.  I'm not sure what to make of it, but here it is.

One thing that is odd is that interviewee states that Stanley Ann Dunham lived in Jakarta for two years before Barry showed up -- traveling back and forth to Hawaii -- and we also know that little Barry did his fair share of traveling back and forth, but his passport file doesn't exist, and he's not on his mother's passport.
So, now we know why Stanley Ann had her passport renewed on July 19, 1965, four months after she married Lolo (notice she had her passport renewed), but we have no evidence that Stanley Ann had ever before traveled outside of the united States -- so where did she go that she needed her original passport?  Kenya, maybe?

And why is there no record of Stanley Ann's original passport?  We have her passport file, but this official State Department file does not contain her "original" passport records -- they are missing.  It begins with her "renewal" records.  Just another coincidence, I suppose.

The video does support the contention that Lolo Soetoro did indeed adopt Barry, since the interviewee says Lolo refers to him as, "this is my boy."

The interviewee also refers to Barry attending Franciscus Assisi Primary School, and we know he began his studies there  on January 1, 1968 and sat in class 1B.  So Stanley Ann must have arrived in 1965 or 1966.

Like every new piece of the Obama puzzle, this interview raises more questions that it answers.

R : please tell us how could u known obama family? ( pak lolo) did u work for him?
