The most con­cealed pres­i­dent in this coun­try’s his­tory?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Say­ing the re­leased long-form doc­u­ment should end the Pres­i­dent Obama birth is­sue is in­dica­tive of press bias and the fail­ure of in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing in this coun­try. Af­ter wait­ing three years re­gard­ing this sim­ple re­quest, Mr. Obama has de­layed past the point of cred­i­bil­ity.

Al­ready, many de­fects have been pointed out in the re­leased doc­u­ment. For in­stance, the Kapi’olani Ma­ter­nity & Gy­ne­co­log­i­cal Hos­pi­tal, which is the hos­pi­tal listed on the pres­i­dent’s birth cer­tifi­cate, didn’t even ex­ist in 1961. It didn’t come into ex­is­tence un­til 1978.

The me­dia says that most of the doubters are Repub­li­cans. Yet, Repub­li­cans are avoid­ing this is­sue like it was the third rail. It is in­de­pen­dents, with open and in­quir­ing minds who are in­sist­ing on truth and fact find­ing which, un­for­tu­nately are lack­ing in to­day’s me­dia.

Racial mo­tives are of­ten men­tioned but it is the me­dia who treats Mr. Obama as a black man who must be han­dled with kid gloves and no per­sonal crit­i­cism. Open-minded in­di­vidu- als who be­lieve in Amer­i­can tra­di­tions see him as a politi­cian who de­serves per­sonal scrutiny. He did get a large per­cent­age of in­de­pen­dent, white votes.

The con­ceal­ment of crit­i­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion in Mr. Obama’s life should raise the concern and in­ves­tiga­tive pow­ers of any re­spon­si­ble, un­bi­ased, pro­fes­sional jour­nal­ist. Many of us would like to read his Columbia the­sis, Har­vard Law School records, Har­vard Law Re­view ar­ti­cles and Univer­sity of Chicago ar­ti­cles. But they are kept hid­den from the pub­lic along with his pass­port records, kinder­garten records, Pu­na­hou school records, Oc­ci­den­tal Col­lege records, Illi­nois State Bar As­so­ci­a­tion records, Illi­nois State Se­nate records and sched­ules, med­i­cal records, Obama/Dun­ham mar­riage li­cense, Obama/Dun­ham di­vorce doc­u­ments, Soe­toro/Dun­ham mar­riage li­cense and adop­tion records. It doesn’t pass the smell test. John G Wil­liams Barns­boro, New Jer­sey
