Yes, Barack did briefly meet his Dad at age 10, and did not feel the father-son connection. Nor did he spend adult time with him. Did the book mention that he took him to a mosque during that short meeting? Indoctrinated him into Islam? The other misinformation? So far no takers. How about you? Just name two.
