    This was sent to me by a friend, I sincerely hope it is factual. J.W.

    AP- WASHINGTON D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over
    Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom
    of Information" has Released copies of President Obama's college
    transcripts from Occidental College . Released today, the transcript school
    indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial
    aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the The
    transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a
    court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of
    California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial
    aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the
    Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship,
    a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to
    provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been
    seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there
    is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty
    grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release
    casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve
    as President. When reached for comment in London , where he has been in
    meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused
    comment on the issue. Britain 's Daily Mail has also carried the story in
    a front-page article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned," leading some to
    speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's
    first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing
    pressure from several groups,

    Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday
    to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as
    President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This
    lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as
    president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens
    demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as

    Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results
    of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates
    that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year
    with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure
    of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation
    is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S.
    attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the
    Subject: RE: Issue of Passport?
    While I've little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama
    birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the
    issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport
    did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi ?

    So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981,
    without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the
    price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?

    And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and
    Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs
    and Immigration?

    The American people not only deserve to have answers to these
    questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama's
    citizenship a rather short and simple one.

    Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
    A : Yes, by his own admission.

    Q: What passport did he travel under?
    A: There are only three possibilities.

    1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport, 2) He traveled with a
    British passport, or 3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.

    Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
    A: No.. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's
    "no travel" list in 1981.

    Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with
    a British passport or an Indonesian passport.

    If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof
    that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims.
    And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend
    to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British
    or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.

    Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how
    he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and

    Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by
    his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented
    to Congress,the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

    If you Don't care that Your President is not a natural born Citizen and
    in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this and go into your cocoon.

    Wish it were true, but a very old, and now discredited email that gets circulated every now and then by someone who does not check the dates of publication.

    Jack, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you can see what snopes has to say about this issue. I was about to send this to many of my contacts but decided to check it out first.

    Just be suspicious of sites like Snopes.com and Factcheck.org. They don't always get it right. Factcheck is owned by the The Annenberg Foundation, which has a conflict of interest regarding Barry O. If you enjoyed the first post, there's a LOT more at the following site: Click Here
