Sonoran News Raises Obama Selective Service Concerns

Contrairimairi just sent me Linda Bentley's Sonoran News article concerning possible doctoring of Obama's selective service history. Hmmm:

>On Oct. 13, 2008, J. Stephen Coffman, a retired federal agent, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the SS for a copy of Obama’s SS registration form.

>His FOIA request was processed on Oct. 29, 2008, two days after the SS claimed it was received.

>Coffman received a copy of Obama’s registration form along with a copy of the computer inquiry screen, which showed an access date of Sept. 9, 2008, several weeks prior to Coffman’s request.

>It was accompanied by a letter from Richard S. Flahavan, associate director for public affairs and intergovernmental affairs, who stated, 'Also, the enclosed computer inquiry screen indicates that his registration number is 61-1125539-1, as previously provided to you.'

>The computer printout shows a transaction date of Sept. 4, 1980 (the date Obama’s July 29, 1980 registration was entered into the system) with a last action date of Sept. 4, 1980, signifying nothing else had been received or entered since the original Sept. 4, 1980 registration form.

>Coffman found it peculiar his request, according to the computer printout date, was processed on Sept. 9, 2008, several weeks prior to submitting his request.

>On Feb. 9, 2009, Kenneth Allen submitted a FOIA request for the same records. He received a response, also from Flavahan, dated March 4, 2009.

>The 10-digit Document Locator Number (DLN) 0897080632 is printed or stamped across the top right hand corner of the registration form.

>The computer printout provided to Coffman displayed an 11-digit DLN of 8089 708 0632.

>The computer printouts provided to both Allen and Coffman are both dated Sept. 9, 2008.

>The copy of the registration form provided to Allen and Coffman are identical.

>However, Allen’s computer printout is titled “Registrant File Inquiry Report” while Coffman’s is titled “RIMS History Inquiry Screen.”

>And, the DLN on the computer printout received by Allen, also an 11-digit number, reads: 0897 080 6320.

>So, while Coffman’s printout had an eight added to the beginning, Allen’s had a zero added to the end.

>Once issued, DLNs do not change.

>Even though the inquiry screen indicates Allen’s request was processed on Sept. 9, 2008, just like Coffman’s, it reflects a last action date of June 25, 1991, showing a Form 50 change letter had been received and entered then. Records provided to Coffman reflected no such action.

>The post office round date stamp on Obama’s registration form also raised legitimacy concerns. The stamp displays “USPO Honolulu, HI Makiki Sta.” with “Jul 29 80” stamped in the center of the circle on three lines. However, the two-digit year is stamped off center as if it should have been a four-digit date.
