The Case of the Over-Prescient Kenyan

According to retired Illinois postman Allen Hulton, who used to deliver mail to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers' parents house in a Chicago suburb in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Tom and Mary Ayers bragged about how they were paying for a "foreign student" to be put through school.
"He says that Mary Ayers told him the student's name, but that it was a "strange name" that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him," writes Corsi.
"I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him," Hulton says. "And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection."
Given Bill Ayers' documented close relationship with Barack Obama, that "foreign student" could only have been the future President himself.
Indeed, Hulton later met the "foreign student" outside the Ayers house, a well-dressed young black man who assured him with complete confidence that he was going to be "President of the United States."
"There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it -- he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way," Hulton says. "It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged," said Hulton.
"The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama's voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers' home," Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio's Cold Case Posse investigation.
