Lots of 'ifs' in there, and no evidence that any of it actually happened.
The simplest explaination is that he had a US passport. The piece that
Marie quoted from the NYT travel section
certainly suggests that there were Americans travelling as tourists in
those countries in 1981.
According to the US State Department, a parent cannot renounce US
citizenship of minor children. IF Obama was legally adopted, and IF he
became a citizen of Indonesia, he'd have dual citizenship. Unless he
officially renounced his US citizenship (or committed one of the acts that
loses your citizenship), he's still a citizen.
