Where Was Obama?
Dr. Orly Taitz that has a shocking revelation. It seems Obama went missing for more than a year in 1981 when he was supposed to be at Columbia. That’s also the year that Obama said he went to Pakistan for the summer.
The following paragraphs have been extracted from Taitz’ First Amended Complaint, filed at the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia:
27. Further records from the Student Clearing House show even more shocking evidence. In his memoirs and multiple speeches Obama wrote that he studied for two years at Columbia University September 1981-May 1983. He admitted that in summer of 1981 he traveled to Pakistan to visit his friends, but repeatedly claimed that from September 1981 until May of 1983 he resided in New York and studied at Columbia University. Taitz ran a check of his years of attendance at Columbia university and found out that Columbia official records show him attending Columbia university only for nine months September 1982-till May 1983 (Exhibit 3 — last line — click to enlarge), which means that the President of the United States lied to the whole nation about his whereabouts for a whole year September 1981 until September 1982. One year absence is the best case scenario, as he could get his university credit by reciprocity or through extern studies.
28. As there is no record of Obama residing anywhere else in the United States from September 1981-September 1982, or attending any other university, by way of simple deduction it becomes clear that his visit to Pakistan lasted not a month or two, as he claims, but may have lasted for over a year.
29. In 1981-1982 Pakistan was ruled by a ruthless radical Muslim leader general Zia Ul Hac, who came to power as a result of a military coup, announced himself as a Chief Martial Law Administrator and ruled the country via the system of iron fist terror. Supreme court of Pakistan, apparently afraid for their lives found such rule to be acceptable due to a “necessity” doctrine. Based on verification of Columbia university records, Taitz found that Obama spent at least a year within the regime of general Zia Ul Hac. This revelation adds urgency in processing this complaint, as it shows that we have today an individual usurping the position of the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of the whole US military, while using a stolen social security number, not possessing a valid long form U.S. birth certificate and defrauding the nation and concealing a whole year of his whereabouts.

Taitz is something of a loose cannon, but that is an interesting artifact that she has uncovered.
Watch for the announcement from the National Student Clearinghouse describing Taitz’ discovery as a data entry error, but in any case this isn’t going to help Obama’s Columbia story.
Obama’s “Missing Year” At Columbia
Jerome Corsi says swirling amid the black hole of information are a host of theories about Obamas whereabouts during the 1981-1982 school year, so WorldNetDaily contacted the National Student Clearinghouse and Columbia about the clearinghouse records that show Obama was at the school only during the 1982-83 school year.
Janine Greenwood, vice president and general counsel for the clearinghouse, told WND there was a “computer error” in their system that has been corrected. She said she confirmed with Columbia that Obama was at the university for two academic years, not one.
Greenwood said she “tried to untangle this” discrepancy one year ago after two “DegreeVerify certificates” from the Herndon, Va.-based clearinghouse — obtained through a fee-based request — indicated Obama attended Columbia College at Columbia University only in the 1982-1983 academic year, from Sept. 1, 1982 until May 31, 1983, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree May 17, 1983.
“All I know is [the record] was right originally, and somewhere along the line it went off the rails, and then it was right again,” she said.
Columbia’s Robert Hornsby said he was unaware of any contact between Columbia and the National Student Clearinghouse regarding the discrepancy.
In the Thursday interview, Hornsby said regarding the clearinghouses information: “I dont know what theyre basing their information on or what their system is for logging, but I can confirm, as a matter of fact, that President Obama was here in September 1981 as a transfer student from Occidental.”
Asked whether he had personally seen a transcript that would verify Obama attended classes during the 1981-82 school year, Hornsby said, “Youre looking for proof I cannot provide.”
He noted academic records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, “and we dont talk about any students academic records, presidents or otherwise.”
Hornsby said his information is based on confirmation from “people that have the authority” in the registrars office.
Obama attended Columbia School of General Studies. If a General Studies student completes enough courses, and/or has other credits from elsewhere accepted, a student can receive a degree. People confuse Columbia University, Columbia College, and Columbia General Studies. A big university system has many different schools and colleges attached.
Of course, what Columbia University will not release is exactly what Obama actually did while in their General Studies degree program.
Undergraduate education at Columbia is offered through Columbia College, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of General Studies. Undergraduate programs are offered by two affiliated institutions, Barnard College and Jewish Theological Seminary. Columbia University provides post-graduate education through thirteen graduate and professional schools and a school of continuing education. Three affiliated schools also offer post-graduate programs.
