Simply put – Dr. Corsi has once again raised important questions that are more than deserving of the pursuit for answers.
NEW YORK – Two separate database reports from the National Student Clearinghouse last year that contradicted President Obama’s claim he attended Columbia University for two years added to the intrigue generated by Obama’s unwillingness to discuss his time at the Ivy League institution, his block on the release of educational records, and the many political science students and faculty there in the early 1980s who say they don’t remember him.
…Janine Greenwood, vice president and general counsel for the clearinghouse, told WND there was a “computer error” in their system that has been corrected. She said she confirmed with Columbia that Obama was at the university for two academic years, not one.
…Obama’s autobiography “Dreams from My Father,” the Columbia University website and two best-selling biographies by authors favorably disposed to the president all assert Obama attended Columbia for two years, from 1981 to 1983.
Unlike previous presidents, however, Obama has refused to release any transcripts or other documentation regarding his education, going back to Kindergarten.
…An editorial titled “Obama’s Lost Years,” published in the Wall Street Journal Sept. 11, 2008, noted Fox News contacted some 400 students who were at Columbia from 1981 to 1983 and found no one who remembered him.
An Associated Press story May 16, 2008, also stated the Obama campaign declined to discuss Obama’s “time at Columbia and his friendships in general.”
Perhaps readers recall the still recent confusion regarding Barack Obama’s own biographical information from his own book publisher that detailed Obama as having been born in Kenya – a biography that had to have been approved by Obama himself prior to its publication and subsequent republication for over ten years. When that story surfaced, the publisher quickly attempted to cite it as an error, while the Mainstream Media ignored it altogether.
Now I will not state that the biography “error” was proof of Barack Obama’s true place of birth – but it most certainly is proof that the “man calling himself Obama” has time and again proven more than willing, at the very least, to cloud the details of his own past. That alone is worthy of considerably more attention and investigation by the media into the real story of just who this man is that now occupies perhaps the single most powerful position in the world.
Jerome Corsi’s most recent investigation into the Obama “lost years’ at Columbia shows yet another example of a concerted effort by Barack Obama to hide his history from the public. It is only logical to at the very least ask WHY?
Kudos to Dr. Corsi for having the perseverance to continue asking that most basic of questions. -UM
