to paraphrase - he had asked in his "OTP" if there was anything credible I might want to bring to the table to add to my OP. In
response I thought of a few things right off the top of my head:
The intrigue surrounding Obama on this issue is of his own doing, having been generated by his persistent stonewalling, and complete unwillingness to
discuss his (alleged) time at Columbia U, most notably, his refusal to release educational records,
and the fact that many political science,
pre law students and faculty who there in the early 1980s say they don’t remembered him at all.
Two consecutive Columbia University Photo Yearbooks from the years 1982 --1983 do NOT have a Barack Obama, B Obama, B. H. Obama or just H Obama. Not
even Brrack's alias - Barry Soetoro.
He supposedly published an article in the campus magazine Sundial, but in that very magazine (March 10, 1983) only one article was attributed to a
student. The alleged article purportedly attributed to BHO has been proven to have been written another writer who has came forward claiming credit
for the article and has shown proof of this in five major media outlets - including the NY Times.
Many have heard that Obama's years at Columbia University in New York has been called into question. Claims of over 400 student whom graduated in
1983, the year Obama was said to have graduate and nobody remember him.
Wayne Allyn Root made a statement in 2008 to many media source such as The Wall Street Journal and Fox News.
A few quotes from snopes.com
"Root stated that he was also, like Obama, "Class of 83 political science, pre law," and he says, "you don't get more exact than that; never met him
in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him.
"At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of BarackObama! And five
years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York , the macha who knows everybody,
has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange?"
'Lately others have been coming forward stating they remember Barack Obama, in fact two of his alleged ex roommates have came forward as has one
professor. Phil Boerner and Sohale Siddiqi have came forward and have given interviews, but were they really [telling the truth? I doubt it very
much."] More on Phil Boerner at another time.
Sohale Siddiqi is identified as "Sadik" in Obama's memoir, Dreams From My Father, and is described as "a short, well-built Pakistani" who smoked
marijuana, snorted coc aine and liked to party. Siddiqi was from Karachi, Pakistan, and Obama's roommate when he attended Columbia University.
Siddiqi was not a student at Columbia and became an illegal having over stay his tourist visa.  Obama knew Saddiqi when he visited Chandoo and
Hamid at Occidental. Siddiqi claims Obama stopped using drugs when he arrived at Columbia. Siddiqi is a recovering drug addict and now lives in
Seattle working for a community theater.
Is it possible that Sohale Siddiqi is a hired operative (among others) brought in solely to run cover for Barack Obama with respect to the Columbia U
Here they are sitting oddly together.
Phil Boerner, another alleged roommate of Barack Obama's from their supposed time together in 1981 at Columbia University, has come forward with his
Is this really believable?: Sounds like its scripted.
In an article published in Columbia College Today, Boerner also wrote: Boerner: I remember often eating breakfast with Barack at Tom’s
Restaurant on Broadway. Occasionally we went to The West End for beers. We enjoyed exploring museums such as the Guggenheim, the Met and the American
Museum of Natural History, and browsing in bookstores such as the Strand and the Barnes & Noble opposite Columbia. We both liked taking long walks
down Broadway on a Sunday afternoon, and listening to the silence of Central Park after a big snow. I also remember jogging the loop around Central
Park with Barack.
