AP Photo: School Registration Lists Barack Obama (Barry Soetoro) as a Muslim Indonesian Citizen

August 15, 2008



This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as Islam.(AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)

Barack Obama’s Indonesian Registration appears as Barry Soetoro – Change & Experience
An excerpt

There has been third party verification by one of the bloggers at No Quarter into whether or not the above image is legitimate and the outcome is that the Associated Press has confirmed the image as one of their own.
Click here to read that information.

Reasons for censorship?
The Associated Press and the rest of the mainstream media probably had this photo of the registration document in their hands or databases but refused to touch it. After CNN published the facts that FOX incorrectly reported that the school was a madrassa, the entire issue of Barack Obama’s name of ‘Barry Soetoro’ was side stepped. It was probably decided that this material or photo shouldn’t be available to the general public. (The same idea was probably applied to any audio or visual media related to a separate issue concerning an interview between Barack Obama and Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times.) Therefore the image lay untouched and untranslated in the photo repository for 18 months. The photo that is available through Daylife is very blurry and several technical enhancements had to be made to view the actual document. In no way was any of the text, writing, or information changed or altered.

Change & Experience address’ the Barack Obama and Nicholas Kristof issue in above article. A topic which I reported in a previous article here.
And I quote:

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

TexasDarlin adds this to the mix.

In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when asked to provide former names, according to this Attorney’s Registration Record:


Controversial? To be sure.
Compelling? Is the sky blue?

    I saw all of this too…

    It is disconcerting… bottom line is… if he was born in Honolulu, he has US citizenship…. so the document is in error…

    I don’t see people not voting for him over this… which is actually kind of disturbing since you would think at a minimum you’d want your Presidential candidate not to be subject to criticism he’s not even a US citizen…

    As complicated as Obama’s past is he would be a huge fool if he thought each and every facet would not be throughly investigated, once he decided to run for POTUS.
    You can only hide truth under the rug for so long before the lump it creates grows large enough to trip over.

    Obama has never been completely forthcoming with the American people.
    Smoke and mirrors…

    I also posted this info.

    It has had 3 views.

    (Some of my posts have had 400 hundred views. Usually at least 10.)

    Conclusion: Nobody really cares.

    Also note that Clinton deserved to lose the nomination for being too wimpy to seriously and directly attack Obama.

    I did not receive as many hits as I thought I might. But there has been 47 up till now. 15 so far today.

    It has been syndicated on the Chicago Sun Times, with 64 (on site) views so far. And 7 click throughs to this post.

    Not phenomenal by any means but at least I’ll have this photo archived for prosperity. 😉

    Edit: I do not know about you but as far as this past weekend goes it was slow around here hit wise.
    Note, I posted this late Friday afternoon/early evening.

    It still surprises me the lack of curiosity/interest in Obamaleon.

    The Democrat lawyer at was on Coast to Coast, and mentioned how Obama had lied about having no other previous names. The host got upset at the word “lied”. H kept saying it was really stupid, and and Barry Soetero or Barry Obama didn’t count as his names because he hadn’t named jimself, but those were just names his parents had given him.

    And every caller but one accused him of being a Republican or running a scam etc. He previously sued Dick Cheney, and filed a suit by a WTC victim family member.

    I don’t know if he has a case, but the reaction was interesting. The host and callers were all laughing about how crazy he was, and then they went back to talking about all their regular themes (Area 51, alien technology, remote mind control, 9-11 Truth, Building 7, JFK…)

    That lawyer also claimed that when Obama went to Pakistn in the 80s, he travelled on an Indonesian passport. I don’t know where he got that from. I mean the info source.

    Yawn. If we’re going to talk about stuff that makes absolutely no difference in their ability to be president, let’s discuss how John McCain married Cindy (and lied about his age) before he’d even finished dumping the woman who waited five years for him. He was a POW, you know.
