Obama, in a speech said:
"It is the light of opportunity that led my father across an ocean. It’s the founding ideals that the flag draped over my father’s coffin stand for. It is life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
His father never fought in the US military. Why would a US flag drape a coffin of a man who fought for communist ideals, who is buried in Kenya?
Barack Obama Sr:
Conflict with President Jomo Kenyatta destroyed Obama Sr.'s career. The decline began after Tom Mboya's assassination in 1969. Obama Sr. was fired from his job by Kenyatta, was blacklisted in Kenya, and began to drink. He had a serious car accident, spent almost a year in the hospital, and by the time he visited his son in Hawaii in late 1971, he already had a bad leg. Obama Sr.'s life fell into drinking and poverty, from which he never recovered. His friend, journalist Philip Ochieng, has described Obama Sr.'s difficult personality and drinking problems in the Kenya newspaper the Daily Nation. Obama Sr. later lost both legs in another automobile collision and subsequently lost his job. He fathered another son named George. Six months after his son's birth, Obama Sr. died in a third car crash in Nairobi in 1982. He was interred in his native village of Nyang’oma Kogelo, Siaya District. His funeral was attended by ministers Robert Ouko, Oloo Aringo and other prominent political figures.
Any Obama fan want to take a stab at this one? Why would a US flag drape Obama Sr's coffin?
