Mumbai: There's been a major protocol glitch on the eve of Barack Obama's visit to Mumbai that has top Maharashtra politicians, including the Chief Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister taking a stand against attending the functions arranged for the US President.

But now, the US Consulate in Mumbai on Friday apologised for having asked invitees to submit personal details like PAN numbers after it drew angry reaction from senior Maharashtra ministers and officials and blamed "clerical error" for the queries.
According to reports, the Chief Minister and his Deputy are upset that the US Consulate has demanded personal details.

No! This is satire? Barack Obama requires other peoples’ birth certificates?
Must be stealing credit-card numbers.

You had to know that 0bambi would blow it. India should demand to see his long form BC before letting him in their air space.

It isn’t an Obama world tour if he can’t find a reason to apologize for something.

Ironic, the Tyrant Imam with no birth certificate
demands birth certificates of all who kneel before him.

They all should refuse to attend anything with him. A good shunning would do Sir Arrogance good.

The US Consulate called it a “clerical error”? To me, a clerical error would’ve been not sending the invitations out in enough time for a proper RSVP. For whatever reason it was deliberate.
Plus, what guarantee did they have that they would be meeting the “real” BHO??

So, the U.S. taxpayer has spent a billion dollars to send Barry and his entourage on a vacation and they go over there and act like morons, insulting dignitaries in their own city.
