menteng1969 - Copy

We’ve been having fun lately, comparing photos of various Indonesian personages to our current president. See herehere and here, for examples. The photo at the top of this post is said to be of Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Hussein Obama II, circled) in 1969 or 1970, depending upon which source you read. As captioned by the Washington Post, the photo was taken at a graduation ceremony at SDN Menteng 1, the Muslim public school that Obama attended while he lived in Indonesia. Our post at this link examines Obama’s numerous schools and teachers, for more context.

Obama Mystery Theater: Stanley Ann’s Passport Renewal of 1968 (Part Three)

This is the third article in a series that looks at some passport records related to Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro (Ann), with special emphasis on an application she made to renew her passport in August 1968. In part two, we determined that it’s likely that Ann did have a passport that predated the passport she was renewing. Since her then-current passport was issued in July 1965, if she had a preexisting passport, then that passport may have been issued in July 1960, right after Ann allegedly graduated from high school and around the time that her family moved to Hawaii.  It’s also possible, however, that the earlier passport had been issued in July 1962, provided that she didn’t extend the expiration date for another two years.

Obama Mystery Theater: Stanley Ann’s Passport Renewal of 1968 (Part Two)

SADSpassport2 - CopyClick image to enlarge, then click again.

This is the second part of a closer look at Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro’s passport records. In part one, we examined a portion of a passport renewal application dated August 13, 1968, nearly two years before her passport, issued July 19, 1965, would have expired. We looked into the background of the “vice consul” who processed this passport-renewal: Mr. Alphonse F. La Porta. Because no passport records for “Ann”  Soetoro dated before 1965 were found or released, we speculated about whether the 1965 passport was the first-ever passport for Ann, or whether she had a previous passport, perhaps one issued five years before July 19, 1965.

Obama Mystery Theater: Stanley Ann’s Passport Renewal of 1968

Ann Dunham Soetoro Passport photos  4 of them CWe’re going to look at a few pages from Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro’s alleged passport files, which were released under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  We have many questions about these pages, especially because requests concerning “White House equities”, ever since 2009, “need” to be routed through the White House, as revealed by a recently disclosed memo.

In 2009 the FOIA was effectively rewritten or extra-legally “amended” by former White House Counsel Greg Craig to ensure the White House has hands-on oversight.  One wonders, then, why these particular pages were released to the public and not redacted, as so many other documents have been heavily redacted out of alleged concern for the “privacy” of living people (that being Barack Obama, among others, such as his sister).

Thanks to one of our intrepid researchers, we now know for certain when Mark Okoth Ndesandjo, the half-brother (?) of Barack Obama, was awarded a Master of Science in Physics from Stanford University: 1990.
