Selective Services – Explantions and questions

Recently John embarrassed himself by  copying a statement found at a blogtalk site (the comment has somehow disappeared? Thanks to John for eternalizing it). Another contributor also showed how the numbers of those who registered around the same time as President Obama were unremarkably close


Obama’s Selective Service is indeed a forgery. Obama registered on July 30, 1980. On this date, Obama was 18 Years 11 Months Old. Even if valid, Obama was in violation of federal law:
“Under current law, all male U.S. citizens are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.”

Since Obama hadn’t registered at all, he had to forge the date. Since if was 2008, he you used that date by cutting it off and using the “08″. He had to use these numbers. But, in doing so, Obama proved regardless on whether it was valid or not, that he was in violation of federal law.

Of course, the facts were that the draft had been reinstated as explained by Whatever4:

John — the Selective Service wasn’t active between April 1975 and July 1980, and no one registered during that time. Registration was restarted with a proclamation dated July 2, 1980 (link). Men born in 1961 were told to register during the six days after July 28, 1980. Thus Obama’s registration was correct. There is no bombshell there.

Bill Rawle posted the following information at the Phoenix New Times website

In February, 2008, the Selective Service Administration confirmed that then-Senator Obama registered for the draft according to Federal law.

In August, 2008, the Selective Service Administration confirmed that then-Senator Obama registered for the draft in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1980 with the SS number of 61-1125539-1.

In October, 2008, the Selective Service Administration publicly released then-Senator Obama’s Selective Service registration card.

Further research showed that two other individuals also registered for the Selective Service at the same Post Office in Honolulu within days of President Obama.  All three of these gentlemen’s registration cards are stamped with a 10 digit Document Locator Number (DLN) which was added at the time the cards were processed.

The information for all three men is listed below:

Barack Obama    – Jul 29 1980, DLN – 0897 080 632, SS 61-1125539-1, DOB  8/4/61
Darrel Oniwa    – Jul 31 1980, DLN – 0897 080 653, SS 61-1125556-5, DOB 12/3/61
Bruce Henderson – Aug  2 1980, DLN – 0897 080 613, SS 61-1125522-7, DOB 08/25/61

So two questions:

1)  Why did the Bush Administration cover for then-Senator Obama?

2) How did President Obama obtain a DLN and a SS number that are with the range of other men who definitely registered in 1980?
