AP Confirms Authenticity Of Barry Soetoro School Record
No Quarter blog has confirmation from the AP that the document posted on the Internet purporting to be a school record of a Jakarta, Indonesian Catholic school for Barry Soetora a/k/a Barack Obama, Jr., is indeed authentic. At a minimum, this creates serious legal ramifications for Obama's law license in Illinois. Records there suggest he disclosed no other name that he has used when he applied for admission to practice law there. In a worse case scenario, it presents an Article II problem for Obama's eligibility to serve as president of the United States. The document says Barry Soetoro was an Indonesian citizen. Some argue that his mother's decision to make him an Indonesian citizen calls into question the "natural born citizen" requirement found in Article II of the U.S. Constitution. The school document also tells us Obama has been lying about his Muslim past. It lists his religion as Islam. What I find particularly troubling is the fact that this document has been available to the mainstream media since January, 2007. The media used this document to prove that reported claims that Obama had attended a fundamentalist Muslim school were false. The media ignored the other obvious issues the document raised. Why?
