WHAT SAY YOU?
Newly released immigration documents indicate Obama Sr. was 2 years older.
Overshadowed by reaction to the release of Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate was the unearthing of half-century-old files that cast doubt on whether the age of the president's father indicated on the "new" Hawaii document is accurate.
The applications, memos and other documents from the Immigration and Naturalization Service acquired in a Freedom of Information Act request by Heather Smathers of the Arizona Independent – which indicate Barack Obama Sr. would have been 27 at the time of his son's birth, not 25 – also suggest that the president's father did not (officially) leave the islands from the time of his August 1959 arrival until he departed for graduate studies at Harvard in June 1962.
Curiously, on an Aug. 17, 1962, application to extend his visa, Obama Sr. filled in a line asking him to list the names and addresses of children.
The only child he listed was Roy Obama, a son from his Kenyan wife, Kezia. At that time, Barack Obama Jr. was 1 year old but unknown to his father?
Nationality: "British”. That’s all anyone needs to know. NOT NATURAL BORN! NOT ELIGIBLE!
(Foreign invader like Khomeini in Iran back in 1979. Certainly acts in a very similar fashion toward his chosen country).
