Dunno. I've come back to the original article a couple of times. D'Souza stitches together a whole lot of disparate elements of the president's writing and history to make a fairly coherent storyline based on an anti-colonialism worldview. On the other hand, the same basic themes can be read in pretty much any undergrad who goes through an Ivy League school and accepts the "prevailing wisdom." Add in the Alinsky mindset via ACORN and organizing in Chicago, and you arrive at essentially the same place. It doesn't have to be this complicated. Unless, of course, you are trying to sell books or something.
