Declassify Obama Records Along With Torture Docs

So, John Hawkins has published a great article over at Pajamas Media entitled The Right Needs To Play As Dirty As The Left (in which he is correct,) and, reading the comments, someone mentions the Obama birth certificate issue. I’d kinda moved on from that, but, hey, what the heck, I’ll take a look to see if there is anything new out there on Google News for the heck of it. And darned if Family Security Matters doesn’t make an excellent point on not only the birth certificate, but other Obama docs – Let’s Declassify Obama’s Birth Certificate Along With the ‘Torture’ Memos

In the Obama administration, a lot of information has been recently declassified and publicly distributed. Memos detailing enhanced interrogation tactics of Jihadist terror detainees (or, as the left defines it, torture) and photos that allegedly show the abuse of these detainees by their American captors are the first – but not likely the last – in the declassification queue.

The intent, in the eyes of our president and his advisors, is noble: to introduce “transparency” and to “make up” for the mistakes of the Bush administration. After all, we want al Qaeda and its copycat Jihadist terror organizations to like us. What better way than to put on the public relations equivalent of a hair shirt and prostrate ourselves in front of those against whom we have “sinned”? (snip)

Hey, if it’s no problem to release classified documents, the birth certificate should be an easy call, as to my knowledge it’s not classified. Neither are his undergraduate records. If he’s as brilliant as everyone keeps saying he is, why not prove it by showing off his stellar grades? What articles did he write while editor of the vaunted Harvard Law Review? Inquiring minds want to know. Speaking of Harvard, how did he pay for his high priced law degree? Let’s not forget that trip during college to Pakistan in 1981, the one that supposedly providedObama with his foreign policy credentials. There has been a lot of controversy about whether Americans were allowed to travel to Pakistan at that time due to the strife, violence and martial law within that nation at the time. Yet he, an unconnected college student, managed to travel there and stay for three weeks. (Is this just more evidence of miracles wrought by The One?) A call to the State Department by one of my colleagues yielded Pakistan travel information on the early 1980s but not 1981. Hmmm…

Again, I will state for the record, I believe that Obama is Constitutionally entitled to be president for several reasons, including that oldy by goody, innocent till proven guilty. But, it does still seem very strange that Obama won’t release a copy of the original birth certificate, rather then a computer generated 2006 edition that includes referring to his father’s race as “African,” something that would not have happened in 1961. So why not pony up the $10 to get an actual copy of the hospital records instead of fighting in court, and threatening people?

Americans have asked nicely. Pretty please with sugar on top? Some have even filed lawsuits, a number of which have been summarily dismissed, while others have been the cause of threatening letters by the lawyer representing President Obama and Vice President Joe “Gaffe-o-Matic” Biden. Robert F. Bauer wrote a letterto attorney John Hemenway threatening “sanctions, including costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees” if Hemenway does not withdraw the appeal of his “frivolous” lawsuit demanding the release of the birth certificate. Gee, that’s friendly. Are threats to private citizens on behalf of our elected officials some of the “change” we were promised?

Well, with the Obama administration, yes. It seems to enjoy threatening, investigating, and slurring private citizens. And, based on comments over at the LA Times Top Of The Ticket blog, people do still care about this issue, and do not care if the Obama admin threatens them.

There’s more evidence: Two Honolulu newspapers carried birth notices in August 1961 announcing the birth of a son to “Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama.” Conspiracy theorists who contend Obama was really born in Kenya should have a hard time convincing anyone that Obama’s parents put a fraudulent announcement in the newspapers 47 years ago on the off chance their newborn son might want to run for President of the United States someday.

An interesting point, however, in 1961, it would have been easy to place the birth announcements without any proof, and, had Obama been born out of country, the placing of said announcements would have been to establish him as an American citizen, giving him all the rights and privileges thereof. How many anchor babies are born every year?

A state official, Hawaiian Health Director Chiyome Fukino, said, “I, and Dr. Alvin Onaka have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.” But officials have rejected requests for access, saying Obama would have to authorize any access, and left ambiguous its origin: Does the certificate on file with the Department of Health indicate a Hawaii birth or was it generated after the Obama family registered a Kenyan birth in Hawaii?

They demanded John McCain provide his BC. He did. He provided the documents that stated he was Constitutionally eligible. And, yeah, if Obama is proven ineligible, we’d get Biden. Believe it or not, I trust him not to hose the country as bad as Obama will.

All in all, an interesting topic of conversation. But, perhaps Obama might consider keeping documents and photos, such as the ones to be released this month that show abuse of Muslims by U.S. soldiers, just as classified. I doubt the release of any of Obama’s documents would cause anything other then some embarrassment, while the release of torture documents and photos will actually put American lives on real danger.
