Birther Site Is Already Lying About Ft. Hood Shooter and Obama

Friday, November 06, 2009 at 11:04 am

Conspiracy-theorist Website WorldNetDaily posts the inevitable “connection” between Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and President Obama, and it possesses the same level of rigor and responsibility we’ve come to expect from the leading source of disinformation that the president wasn’t born an American. Under the headline “Shooter Advised Obama Transition,” Jerome Corsi — he of the Swift Boat liars — writes:

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in yesterday’s massacre at Fort Hood, played a homeland security advisory role in President Barack Obama’s transition into the White House, according to a key university policy institute document.

The Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University published a document May 19, entitled “Thinking Anew – Security Priorities for the Next Administration: Proceedings Report of the HSPI Presidential Transition Task Force, April 2008 – January 2009,” in which Hasan of the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine is listed on page 29 of the document as a Task Force Event Participant.

Wrong! So thoroughly, thoroughly wrong!

That GWU document no more “advised” the Obama transition than did the flurry of think-tank documents and advisory strategies put out by endless interest groups. It had, and therefore Hasan had, absolutely no connection to the Obama administration. Here, for instance, is a story I wrote in November about one such strategy “advisory” paper prepared by the civil liberties community for the Obama transition about counterterrorism strategies. Really, this is as stupid as saying that a guy who writes a letter to The New York Times “advised” editor Bill Keller.

For the sane version of this story, please see Danger Room’s Noah Shachtman:

In May — a few weeks after his pro-bomber post — he participated in attended a meeting of the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s presidential transition task force.

Hasan attended a meeting of a private organization that gave the transition some unsolicited advice. To a group of conspiracy theorists, this is the “connection.” How long before Fox News picks up the story?

Like the original birth certificate, only Obama can disprove the birther site by providing the facts of Hasan's role in homeland security advisory. If the info is so thoroughly wrong why won't Obama release his original birth certificate or challenge these claims of an advisory connection? A little transparency can clear everything up.

Obama doesn't have to challenge such claims when its obvious to anyone reading page three of that document that this “task force” was not solicited by him at all. Its a George Washington University-contrived group that was set up in Spring 2008 to offer unsolicited advice to whomever became president. Lots of think tanks and other institutions did the same thing. Does Obama have to account for every one of those too? Oh brother…

Comment posted November 6, 2009 @ 10:46 pm

Looks to me like Obama was afraid of all the news media getting swamped with the “protest on the Capitol” FRENZY, that he took it into his own hands. No room for that stuff on the news NOW…

Dear Congressman _________,
Barack Obama has still not proven conclusively that he was born in Hawaii. His biological father was a Kenyan-Brit. His mother was not a legal adult and did not meet the age&residency requirement in the new state of Hawaii to confer “natural-born” status on Barack Jr. There have also been credible reports the man some people refer to as president was actually born in Kenya.
Two Birth Certificates have been acquired by attorney Dr. Orly Taitz stating Obama was born in Kenya. At least two African newspapers and an Illinois journal at one time, when Obama was running for U.S. Senate reported he was “Kenyan-born”. In fact his own Grandmother Obama once claimed she was present at his birth in Kenya.
As a boy from age five to ten years Obama lived in Indonesia as the son of Lolo Soetoro his mother's second husband. Mr. Soetoro allegedly adopted young Barack so he could enroll in school as an Indonesian citizen. Obama/Soetoro went to visit his grandparents, the Dunhams, in Hawaii at ten years old and remained there until adulthood.
You have probably heard how Obama has paid well-over a million dollars to lawyers to keep all his school, college and passport records sealed. Indeed the first day in office Obama made a Presidential Proclaimation his records are off-limits to the public. This should have been what's called a “red-flag”.
And still nobody has seen the original Hawaiian Birth Certificate. A few suspect computer images of “Certifications of Live Birth” have been posted on the Internet. Hawaii has a notorious reputation for providing birth documents to foreigners even before statehood including to the first emperor of China. Obama's belated draft registration is reported to be counterfiet as well. Doctor Taitz claimed in court that Obama has used thirty different Social Security Numbers, that's right I said “thirty”. Another red-flag.
The Democratic Party, chaired by Howard Dean, allowed Obama's name on the ballot without verifying his natural-born citizen status which is required by our Constitution. When Nancy Pelosi signed and sent the elector certifications to place Obama on the presidential ballot in 2009 she only nervously signed the one for Hawaii(coincidence?). None of the other forty-nine documents had an original signature and left out the part about the candidate being “costitutionally qualified”.
Former ambassador and presidential candidate Alan Keyes has been at the forefront of the so-called “birther movement”. He and all birthers are met with derision and ignored by the mainstream liberal media. What little exposure we birthers get is ridiculed as crazy, racist and stupid. We just want to know the truth. Singer Pat Boone, actor Chuck Norris, andf author Jerome Corsi have all publicly questioned Obama's legal status to be president.
I hereby accuse Barack H. Obama of being an illegal-alien and usurper ineligible to even run for President of the United States. Further, as a natural-born citizen and combat-veteran I do hereby demand Obama release the documents in question or resign immediately. If he does not comply with this demand I expect his impeachment and removal by congress. Thank you.

I don't see how a patriotic American can blindly accept more wars and laws from a man who won't allow the release his birth certificate and records. A man who has tripled Bush debt, keeps Bush's wars going, expanded Bush patriot act and supports indefinite detention has costly lawyers working to keep his documents sealed and concealed. You can't blame anyone else for a “president” who broke his promise of transparency.

Comment posted November 7, 2009 @ 4:21 pm

Why should anyone be kind to a person who refuses to accept the facts, but instead enters into conjecture. Those who disregarding the truth and then saying “I hope people wake up long enough to insist on the truth” are being dishonest. It isn't that hard of a concept.

As it is obvious that you are referring to the presidents authenticate birth certificate.

Honestly, after over a year why should someone not be hostile to “birthers.” However, claims of people being threatened by those seeking the truth is a blatant lie.

Red and other birthers are more engaged in spreading lies that seeking the truth.

They refused to acknowledge. A genuine Hawaiian birth certificate. Two birth announcements. An independently authentication of the birth certificate. A confirmation of authenticity of the birth certificate and the information on it. A second confirmation by the Governor of Hawaii.

Instead they engage in conjecture. Such as his mother was too young. His mother wasn't pregnant. He father is Kenyan so he is automatically Kenyan. His mothers new husband adopted him. His birth record is out of order. Both his parents must be American citizens. His name was Barry. That newspaper correction is attempts to hide the truth. The list goes on.

Why should anyone be kind to people who refuse to look at the facts and instead make things up.

“Bithers” say they only want the truth. To disregard the facts and to fill it with conjecture is dishonest. To not to think through things logically, but to make weak argument to support a position is dishonest.

Consparicy theoriest who refuse to accept the fact that the President is not a natural born citizen is not better that, truthers, flat eathers, creationist or any other ill informed person.

Truthers went way too far with their conspiracy, birthers can accept simple a birth certificate. At least flat eathers use what we all perceive with our eyes, birther disregard anything that challenges their position. At least creationist have their book of faith, birthers have nothing.

Prove to me that you are an intelligent person. Do some research on the subject, and see if anything supports the birthers position. Only then will you find the truth you seek. Or, you can keep you disillusion.

The Certificate of Live Birth photos posted at is almost identical to the one issued to my grandchild in 2005, different state. When I ordered a replacement for my misplaced birth certificate, the one I received is nothing like the one I used to have but is just like my grandchild's and very much like President Obama's, different state. Birth certificates no longer contain all the same information they used to. You no longer get one like what you used to have. That is how the laws have changed. Privacy laws on the state and federal level changed how birth certificates are issued. They don't give you a choice on what it will look like either.

All Obama has to do to shut up the birthers is release his original BC. But he doesn't. Everytime a president has stonewalled the release of documents, tapes, emails, records, phone recordings,,,, anything,,,, whenever a president stonewalls the release of such things it has always been because he is hiding something. So far, 100% of the time, it means he is hiding something. All he has to do is release the original, the one signed by a doctor in hand writing.

Go to and type in “” and you will see that factcheck is registered to the Annenburgh foundation. Home of BHO and domestic terrorist Ayers. Its like asking the Obama campaign.

All he needs to do is release the original. But he wont. What is he hiding?

Comment posted November 15, 2009 @ 11:25 pm

I really don't understand all this speculation about Barack Obama being adopted as a child and losing his citizenship as a result. Children cannot surrender their own citizenship; they are not competent to do so. Only an adult, by a voluntary act, can surrender his citizenship. There is no evidence that Barack Obama ever did so.
Also, how could his stepfather have adopted him when he already had a living father. No country, certainly not one as patriarchal as Indonesia, would simply remove one father and replace him with another.
Barack Obama Sr. would have had to voluntarily surrender his parental rights to his namesake son, and there is no evidence he ever did so. In fact the evidence goes the opposite way. Mr. Obama Sr. continued to correspond with his son's mother all through Barack Jr.'s childhood. He stayed in touch. He might not have been there physically, but he never lost interest in his son. There were photos and letters exchanged over the years. He even visited his young Barack when the boy was 10, staying for a month.
Also there is no evidence that Obama Sr.'s parental rights were involuntarily terminated either. Young Barack's mother and grandparents always spoke well of him to his son and encouraged him to be proud of his father; they never tried to alienate him from his father. Just the opposite. It's highly unlikely they would have tried to divorce the son from his father.
So people who casually declare that Barack Obama must have been adopted ignore all the legal requirements of adoption and the overwhelming deference for the rights of natural parents to their children. A child is not a puppy, to be surrendered and passed along to the next owner. The biological relationship of parent and child is powerful and primary in all nations.

Comment posted November 18, 2009 @ 1:08 am

That is why Obama was probably born a Kenyan-Brit or possibly a dual-citizen regardless of where he was born. The only original BC produced so far is from Kenya. And once adopted as an Indonesian Obama may have chosen to continue as an Indonesian, Brit or Kenyan when he attended Occidental & Columbia in order to get special deals on tuition, avoid draft-registration, be rebellious, etc. We still need to see that BC & college records. Those documents, if unaltered, would clear things up real fast & the birthers would have to tuck their tales between their legs and concentrate on other stuff like the so-called swine flu pandemic. Until Obama comes clean he is an illegitimate prez.
