Reread it. As we know, there's no contradiction whatsoever since Root found out later about Obama like everyone else.
That is why the fake Selective Service form is so damaging. US law allows dual citizenship in countries that allow it, but honors all countries that do not by canceling citizenship. Indonesia is such a country, dual citizenship is Illegal.
Therefor, by all measures of the law, Barry Soetoro is NOT an American Citizen, and all laws and executive decrees he has signed into effect are legally void.
“1971 Barack Obama, Jr., age 10, returned to Hawaii to attend fifth grade at Punahou School, a prestigious preparatory school. Tuition was paid with the aid of scholarships and help from his grandmother.”
AGE TEN!!!! You can NOT lose your U.S. citizenship! Your parents can't take it away from you because of adoption or ANY OTHER REASON!!! You have to do it YOURSELF!!! Many forms to fill out AFTER you are EIGHTEEN! Obama was TEN when he moved back to America.
It makes NO DIFFERENCE what OTHER countries do with their citizenship. It doesn't affect your U.S. citizenship. Common sense (also U.S. law), why would another country be able to negate your U.S. citizenship?
Never mind the “dual citizenship” nonsense, it is irrelevant. Again, why would another country's citizenship laws TRUMP U.S. law? IT DOESN'T!
If Obama was a foreign exchange student, it wasn't from Indonesia, it would have been from Kenya, where he was actually born.
BUT, if this red herring of Indonesian citizenship gets the public focused on Obama’s eligibility, GREAT! I don't care HOW we get there, just that we get there.
OR, he committed FRAUD! He could have lied and used forged documents from Indonesia, Pakistan, or anywhere else.
I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him
Both are possible. Root may have never known him but has talked to other people who knew Obama as Soetoro while at Columbia. In fact that is more likely from the usage of "was known as" rather than "I knew him as".
We have his mother’s passport records indicating the boy was no longer an American. That’s a fact. You can scream and deny but it’s still true.
Well faucetmouth, since you are well versed on Barry’s history, tell us - what passport did he use to travel to Pakistan, and what did he do there? It is not a garden spot.
I have downloaded Root’s statement and take it to be original/genuine. I see and realize what appears to be the contradiction/discrepancy you point out. To clear the matter Root needs to explain how it is he could state that Obama was ‘known as Barry Soetoro’ but never met him, saw him, or heard of him. In my mind I can think of plausible explanations but it would be very helpful for believing or placing credibility if Root gave an explanation.
1971 Barack Obama, Jr., age 10, returned to Hawaii to attend fifth grade at Punahou School, a prestigious preparatory school. Tuition was paid with the aid of scholarships and help from his grandmother.
This is another inconsistency. There is a picture of him at that school with a classmate in 3rd grade taken in Dec. 1969. There are Christmas decorations in the background. The fellow sent it to him after he was elected and he autographed it and returned it to him. I’ve seen it online several times.
Root was just on as a guest on the Sean Hannity show making all of the above points so he is making the rounds. He mentioned Charles Johnson finding proof in Indonesia that Obama relinquished citizenship. Hope something comes of it...
You see that "Scott and Barry" picture posted online as a picture of them at Punahou, but also as a picture of them at Noelani Elementary.
The caption doesn't actually say Punahou. I suspect it's a mistake people made. The more careful sources say the photo was from Noelani Elementary.
The mystery, though, is that Obama was supposed to be going to school in Indonesia in 1969. I don't know if the discrepancy was ever explained.
Wayne Root said on Hannity that he's in Indonesia and he has the "proof in hand" that Obama as an Indonesian citizen and he will write an article about it (at Breitbart.com) when he gets back.
Root further goes on saying that Obama likely holds presidential office illegally as an usurper. ...No doubt whatsoever.
and we know if there is the slightest room for changing the subject obamites will leap on it instead of the actualy issue.
Perhaps Root should have said,” as we NOW know odumbo was known as Barry soetoro while at Columbia.”
“Root may have never known him but has talked to other people who knew Obama as Soetoro “
so if Root talked to other people who spoke of 0dumbo as barry soetoro i don’t think Root would have said he’d never heard of him do you?
this is not a big deal in the big picture vut it is a seeming contradiction and we all know how obamites love to cloud the issue
“Wayne Root said on Hannity that he’s in Indonesia and he has the “proof in hand” that Obama as an Indonesian citizen”
Root should keep quiet until he has this alleged documentation safely secured in the USA. Does he have a wife and children? Are they protected? Why say this stuff in advance. Just produce the goods and let them speak for themselves.
If only America knew...

Just a few pages of The Obama File:
“Many forms to fill out AFTER you are EIGHTEEN!”
That is simply not true as a matter of what our law was in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
And by the way, the 18-year-old demarcation was added to our laws in the 1986 amendments to the INA. Before that it was possible for him to voluntarily relinquish US citizenship as, for example, a 17-year-old, if the circumstances as a whole indicated that he knew what he was doing. And it was not necessary to fill out US government forms to relinquish US citizenship. The question was whether, looking at the circumstances as a whole, he voluntarily took an affirmative action evidencing an intent to relinquish US citizenship.
If Obama gained Indonesian nationality as a child and then later, as a young adult, he:
1. signed his name claiming status as an Indonesian citizen to an application for college or for financial aid, or
2. renewed an Indonesian passport or
3. did any other affirmative action that evidenced a clear and unambiguous intention to relinquish United States citizenship,
then Obama is likely no longer a U.S. citizen, under our laws as they were in effect in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The reason Indonesian citizenship would cause such a legal problem for Obama is because Indonesia did not permit dual citizenship.
Therefore, if Obama affirmatively chose Indonesia citizenship, then he necessarily was evidencing an intent to relinquish his United States citizenship.
This would not necessarily be the case if the other country was one that allowed dual citizenship, such as Israel. If Obama was a US citizen and also an Israeli citizen, then by renewing an Israeli passport he does NOT necessarily relinquish U.S. citizenship, because his intent clearly could have been to be a citizen of both countries.
However, in the case of Indonesia, if Obama had taken an affirmative action to be an Indonesian citizen, then he cannot claim he intended to be a citizen of both countries, because Indonesia made very clear at the time that if you were an Indonesian citizen you could NOT also be a citizen of another country, so he would have known that by choosing Indonesia he was choosing one over the other, and not both.
