A more practical explanation of Obama's foreknowledge of his presidency might be remote viewing. I absolutely don't accept that the CIA are some kind of all seeing all pervasive power even if they were central to his grooming for the presidency.
My research tells me most CIA are mid level bureaucrats who are largely uninformed. However Alfred's research is well worth spending an hour with. One killer fact after another. I still think Obama is more complex than anyone has articulated yet.
