Mr Goldberg sez: "I think Maraniss is a great reporter, and I don't believe for a moment he is in on a cover-up of Obama's "real" place of birth or his secret Muslim faith. (Nor do I think either allegation is true.)" ??????? I watched Maraniss traveling thru Obama's Africa on CSPAN. In a wattle hut somewhere in the African outback, Maraniss was moved nearly to tears as he reflected upon how Obama had slept in this very hut on the dirt floor. Maybe Maraniss is a 'great reporter' on other subjects but when it comes to Obama, Maraniss is a propagandist.
