We have the issue of the Connecticut Social Security numbers and the questionable Selective Service application. Obama's passport has been off-limits too. Now we have a new development involving his mother's passport records, made available in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by a man named Christopher Strunk.
Last week, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the State Department released passport records of Stanley Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother – but those records for the years surrounding Obama's 1961 birth are missing.Taken alone, this particular issue wouldn't raise many eyebrows, especially if all of the other questions about Obama had been answered. In fact, if the other discrepancies were reconciled, this one either would be as well or would be viewed as insignificant. Taken together, with those discrepancies, it just raises more questions.
The State Department claims that a 1980s General Services Administration directive had resulted in the destruction of many passport applications and other "non-vital" passport records, including Dunham's 1965 passport application and any other passports she may have applied for or held prior to 1965.
A curious fact revealed by Corsi is that the documents released to Strunk via the FOIA prove that Dunham applied for a passport in 1965 because she tried to re-new it in 1968. However, that 1965 application was not included with the documents and the reason given by the State Department doesn't square with stated policy. Strunk was told that those records were destroyed. However, the State Department website - according to Corsi - highlights a pretty obvious discrepancy with that claim:
The claim made in the FOIA response letter that many passport records were destroyed during the 1980s comes despite a statement on the State Department website that claims Passport Services maintains U.S. passport records for passports issued from 1925 to the present.As I've said before, I'm not in the birther camp and this doesn't put me there. However, there are several very questionable - and unanswered - aspects to Barack Obama's past; this only adds to the already existent pile of question marks.
