Members of the public searching the federal database for the commander in chief's registration are suddenly finding new difficulty possibly due to the startling revelation of Obama's alleged use of a Connecticut-based Social Security Number.
The Selective Service System, or SSS, collects names of Americans for use by the Department of Defense in the event of a national emergency. On its website, it says it provides the nation "with a structure and a system of guidelines which will provide the most prompt, efficient, and equitable draft possible, if the country should need it."
Regarding President Obama, "He is registered. There is no doubt in our minds that he has, and we're quite prepared to say so," SSS public-affairs specialist Dan Amon told WND. But the agency's online search engine now appears to be precluding the public from seeing Obama's record after allowing unfettered access. The database allows people to search for registrants as long as a correct name, Social Security Number and date of birth are entered.
On May 5, WND entered the criteria for President Obama, using his date of birth as Aug. 4, 1961, and his Social Security Number, which begins with the Connecticut-issued prefix of 042. The Selective Service database instantly issued a "matched record" without a problem that day, indicating Obama's Selective Service Number is 61-1125539-1. It lists date of registration as Sept. 4, 1980.
However, when WND re-entered the same information on May 20, the database did not provide the matched record, but instead posted a message, stating, "Error. Sorry, your request cannot be processed at this time because you have exceeded the daily limit for the verification of these credentials."
WND asked Selective Service what was causing the sudden problem in retrieving records. Amon said it's likely because many people across the nation are now searching for Obama's records. "If you run into problems, others have, too," he said. Amon says a hacking attempt several years ago prompted the agency to beef up security to prevent future electronic attacks. He initially said the agency created a limit of three verification requests per day for any given record.
"If someone in Omaha, Neb., does it on a whim, then someone in Ohio does it, then that's two times." He said when more than three requests are submitted – no matter where they're entered from – people would see the error message noting the daily limit has been exceeded. "It's like 20 people trying to crowd into a doorway," Amon explained. "If nobody else in the world is doing it, if you punch it in the format suggested, [you get good results]; but if others try, then it will shut it down."
However, when less than two were correct for Obama, such as his name only, WND received a message stating, "Sorry. Based on the information you submitted ... a registration record cannot be found for this individual."
WND tried a variety of combinations for Obama, sometimes using his correct information, and sometimes using incorrect data, such as changing his date of birth or submitting random Social Security Numbers such as 111-11-1111. When at least two of the three criteria were entered correctly, WND received the error message indicating the daily limit had been exceeded.
The problems using the SSS search engine come in the wake of WND's disclosure that two private investigators working independently are wondering why Obama is using a Social Security Number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state. The stunning revelation apparently prompted Internet giant Google to clamp down specifically on WND's report and warn that some sites carrying information on the situation "may harm your computer."
The Social Security website confirms the first three numbers in his ID are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses, 040-049. "Since 1973, Social Security numbers have been issued by our central office," the Social Security website explains. "The first three (3) digits of a person's social security number are determined by the ZIP code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number."

Yea, the website gave a pretty BS excuse as for why it is down now.
It doesn’t make sense for Barrack Obama to have a Connecticut S.S. number. Why would he have been issued a Connecticut identifiable Social Security number if he never lived in the state of Connecticut? He should just clarify and explain this.
You need a social security number to go to college. He would have definitely needed a S.S. number to get a passport to travel to Indonesia, India, and Pakistan and return to the U.S. as a U.S. citizen. I guess when the CIA issued him his citizenship they didn’t notice that the first few numbers in every S.S. number actually meant something and that they insinuate that he must have lived in Connecticut at one point.
I wish Obama was more transparent like he promised. Political lies and hidden agendas. Doesn’t sound like anything new.

Well lookey there, works fine for someone that actually signed up for selective service. Being that ol Obama should be in the system, I do not understand why he is not.
Can anyone answer that for me?
