Although Barack Hussein Obama never mentioned in either of his two memoirs that he considered joining the military after high school. He did “reveal” this “interesting” memory in a interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week on September 7, 2008.
Obama did graduate from high school in Hawaii in 1979, but he could not have registered for Selective Service then. Nobody could. In 1975, President Gerald Ford terminated the Military Selective Service Act. It was not reinstated until July 1980 by President Jimmy Carter. That is one year after Obama graduated from high school. On July 30 1980, when records indicate Obama actually registered, he was no longer living in Hawaii.
At that time, he was living in Los Angeles attending Occidental. This fact significantly undermines his explanation that he actually considered joining the military because “he was living in Hawaii and a lot of his friends had military connections”.
It also undermines his excuse that we were no longer engaged in “active” conflict. When he registered, he was not a high school graduate exploring career options. He was a college student in a world in which the Soviet Union had invaded Afghanistan and the Iranians had captured our embassy in Tehran.
New Revelation …
Yesterday, Debbie Schlussel shared Obama’s draft registration and an accompanying print-out document obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Now, an examination of these records indicate that Obama might have faked his Selective Service registration.
