smoking gun or something like that??
They missed one when they scrubbed everything.
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
And for those that prefer the far east, this article from 1/8/2006 casually mentions in passing that he was born in Indonesia.
“Very rarely have I met a more impressive person than Tammy Duckworth,” said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in an article the day before she announced her candidacy Dec. 18. “She just has the poise and exudes the type of character that I think would make her an astounding public servant.”
Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai’i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have “a kama’aina connection.”
Both were born outside the country Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand and graduated from high school in Honolulu Punahou and McKinley, respectively.”
I didn’t see anything in the link you posted that suggested Obama was born in Indonesia... The quote you pasted isn’t in the article?
Creepy is right.
Interesting info on Tammy Duckworth from Wikipedia:
Duckworth was born in Bangkok, Thailand, to Frank Duckworth and Lamai S., a native of Thailand. She has a brother, Tom. Her family moved around Southeast Asia due to her father’s work with the United Nations and international companies, and she is fluent in both Thai and Indonesian.
The article that was altered doesn’t directly quote her, but where else would that statement come from in that context? And it’s not like Tammy got Indonesia mixed up with Indianapolis or someplace.
Saw this somewhere:
“Kamaaina is the Hawaiian language word for long-term resident of the Hawaiian Islands.” A local, not a tourist, but not necessarily a native.
Hey, maybe Obummer is suffering from Afronesia. That’s a condition where you wash up on a beach in Hawaii, and can’t remember if you drifted there from Africa or Indonesia.
My guess is that they have a sitemeter tracker that shows where their visitors come from. They were able to see this thread in FR and what it was about and so they changed the article.
This is from the Associated Press, right? Can’t trust it.

CORRECTION: A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. A Page One story last Sunday contained incorrect information about his birthplace.
Good thing you captured that.
All flotsam nonetheless.
