In his meandering letter (“Stop the innuendos”), Obama apologist Inman Moor fences with phantoms. Moor seems to accuse WND of propagating “innuendos” that Obama was not “a student at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard, a professor at the University of Chicago, a street organizer, a member of the Illinois State Legislature and a United States senator.”

Moor’s accusation is, of course, silly. From my reading, WND has not questioned whether Obama attended those schools or acted in those capacities. What WND has factually stated is that Obama keeps secret the official records of his past. This is aside from Obama’s mis-assigned Social Security number and apparently forged birth certificate copy and Selective Service registration. (Moor later plays the race card, but I shan’t dignify that phantom, emblem of a bankrupt argument, with a response.)

On Jan. 17, 2012, WND reported: “Among the other documents not released by Obama are his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.”

In the case of his Occidental College financial records, Obama went to court to prevent their release – surely, to hide something. It has not been explained satisfactorily how it was that Obama, from modest means and a self-confessed mediocre student, sailed through some of the country’s priciest and most competitive schools. How exactly was he funded and by whom? What was his titled student status at those institutions? No other president in modern times has so jealously concealed the official details of his background or been granted more free rides by the mainstream press.

The American people have every right to know exactly who this unvetted man is that wields such great power over their lives and the lives of countless others worldwide. Lest we forget, this relatively unknown quantity, Barack Hussein Obama, of arguable allegiance commands the nuclear missile button and all those attack drones. Distressing thought, isn’t it?
