Photo Documents Barry Soetoro: Indonesian Citizen, Muslim Religion

We just received this photo of a school registration form, courtesy of reader “curious,” taken by Tatan Syuflana, an Indonesian AP reporter and photographer. To my knowledge, the AP has not written a story about this . [revision: There was an AP story story in Jan. 2007, but it did not include this photo]. The photo has become relevant now in the context of other revelations reported on this blog. Here is the AP folder where Syuflana’s photo was found: www.daylife.com.

The AP caption reads: “This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as Islam. (AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)”

UPDATE 8/14/08 10:00 AM ET: Matthew over at the blog Changeandexperience did some verification:

A quick search through Google reveals that there is an actual Associated Press photographer by the name Tatan Syuflana. It appears that this photographer specializes in the Indonesian region of the world. The above photo which is hosted on Daylife.com was uploaded about 18 months ago. The upload timeframe would have been around February 14, 2007 about 2 or so weeks after the document was released according to the photo caption from Daylife.com that states that the document was made available on January 24, 2007.

The date of January 24, 2007 was about the time that FOX news incorrectly reported that the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta was a madrassa. The school itself is NOT in question. What IS in question is Barack Obama’s identity, whether or not his name is legally ‘Barry Soetero’; whether or not if he was adopted by Lolo Soetero, whether or not if he retains Indonesian citizenship …

Samples of Tatan Syuflan’s work appears in common news websites such as CBS, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Time magazine. What is still mysterious is that the photo of the registration document appears to have been scrubbed. In depth research finds that any site related to the Associated Press does not feature it on their site. If it did, it appeared briefly. The actual document itself is eluded to in various articles, find out more below.

What It Means

This AP photo is compelling evidence of the following assertions, which have been set forth on this blog:

1. Barack Obama had Indonesian citizenship

2. Barack Obama had the legal name Barry Soetoro

3. Barack Obama was a Muslim, despite his “fight the smears” claim that he never has been. (see new story that we just posted on this topic).

In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when asked to provide former names, according to this Attorney’s Registration Record:

When was Barack Obama going to tell the electorate about his Indonesian identity and citizenship?

What is the current status of his Indonesian citizenship?

Did Barack Obama travel to Pakistan in 1981 on an Indonesian passport?

Does his birth certificate say Barry Soetoro?

Did he ever legally change his name from Soetoro to Obama?

Is the correct name on the ballot?

UPDATE 8/14/08 12:35 AM ET: The Indonesian school registration form has been translated by the changeandexperience blog, where they continue to provide cleaner updates:

Who is Lolo Sorento? Just to help with the backstory, where did the Sorento name come from?

Yep. He's Barry Soretoe all right. Or is it Soreto (as in potato?)

So. It's Barry and Michelle Soretoe.

Beats me, you are the first person I know of who says Sorento. However the Soetero name was his first step fathers name.

1. I am not very interested either. What is written on some school document in a third world country does not make it necessarily legally so in the US concerning his name nor citizenship. And religion is a matter of his choice as an adult. The real issue is did he not his parent ever claim to be a citizen of another country etc.

2. The sheeple know enough about him.

3. He will lose and maybe in a landslide.

I think the quesiton is whether the Clinton people haul this out over the next two weeks to stage an internal coup. It would be better for the Republicans if Obama gets the nomination and then this comes out.

I'm sure most of this material has been secretly floated by her Thighness’s campaign. She would much rather ‘right wing’ bloggers discover(sic) this so she can ride in on her white mule instead of her being the villain.

At this point, the legality doesn't matter as much as the fact he has repeatedly lied, over and over, with passion, about these issues. IF true, even if there are legal loopholes, it would destroy his credibility and political career forever.

I emphasize IF TRUE because we all may be being played here.

If Clinton “steals” the nomination from the chosen one of the Black/Negro/Colored race — the riots in Denver will be just the beginning of riots nationwide and Civil War II in the cities.

Which time? According to the link in post#10 it happened to BHO three times. I find this very disturbing especially with the questions arising about an ‘81 trip to Pakistan. Who knows if anything had been omitted/added/altered?

Sorry but you have no idea what your parents registered you as in first grade either. He certainly can not be held responsible for that.

Can you swear your parents did not have a wiccan phase prior to your memory? If you are honest, you know you cant.

Lolo Soetoros of the world are quite plentiful. To find them, all you need to be is an idiotic white female in search of a third-world lover, possibly a future husband. All you need to do is hang out on the edges of college campuses at the International Center. If you follow such procedure you will be sure to find brown- or black-skinned males suitably leftist for you.

They will all have Indonesian names like Soetoro. Or Kenyan names like Nyamonye. Or Egyptian names like Molokhya. Or Sudanese names like Umkulthom. Or Malaysian names like Selvaduray. Or Pakistani names like Farooq. Or Armenian names like Moutafian.

Really?! I can swear beyond the shadow of a doubt that my parents never had a wiccan phase.

I guess I just pay attention to those that I am related to. I have talked to grandparents, uncles, aunts, and friends about my parents’ growing up years.

It ain't over yet.

If he is not asked about these apparent contradictions at the convention or in one of the debates, the press isn't doing its job.

The public should demand to know just who this fraud really is. I can’t believe Berry was dumb enough to think this would go unnoticed. He suffers from the dangerous combination of a large ego and small brain.

I most certainly DO know what/how my parents registered me in the first grade. I went to the same exact school my father did. I also know what religion I was raised (having gone to Sunday School classes from pre-school all through high school) and what citizenry my parents claimed I was because I saw my own birth certificate when I worked in the county court house in my home town after I graduated from high school.

Barry Soetoro LIED on his Illinois documents about having no prior name. He BROKE THE LAW.

And he's been LYING to the American public about his Muslim upbringing while living with his father.

Thanks for the English version, but "Foreign descendants" in section 3.b is flat wrong.

The Indonesian "keturunan asing" means "foreign descent," referring to the nationality of his parents and earlier forebears, not "foreign descendants." (As far as most people know, so far Soetoro-Obama only has two descendants -- Sasha and Malia -- and their debut was a long way off when little Barry was in the first grade.)

"Foreign ancestors" would also be an acceptable English rendering, despite the slightly antique register.

No you dont and that you claim you do shows how out of touch you are. And you likely were not registered in a foreign country when your mother was married to someone other than your father and where you lived for only a few years. You sound like the H.Clinton campaign ranting about Obama's ambitions as shown by his first grade essays. No one who has not gone back and gotten the documents knows for sure how they were registered when they first went to school.

The Clintons have this all set up. She gets her name put forward as a nominee moments after the Clinton private detectives have gotten their proof of Obama’s ineligibility to be POTUS. The info is put before the convention and, poof, Hillary’s the nominee. These people will do anything not to lose. They’ll even risk riots in the streets. Folks, this is going to be interesting.

He has repeatedly been covered by the MSM. What will have the power to break this logjam? Even Hillary must be careful as to how she might bring this to light without sullying her chances against McCain.

Could there be 2 Barry Sootoros? This is a constitutional question which cannot and should not be ignored. What has the power to force examination by the press? This should be enough for FOX.

There are rumors that he had an Indonesian passport (don't know if it's true or not), but it raises the question did he travel to Pakistan on a US passport or the Indonesian passport. Second question a lot of passports list your religion. If he has an Indonesian passport what religion is listed?
