Upon Reading and Digesting Daniels' Comment, I Totally Agree With His Assertion That President Elect Obama Would Fail A Security Clearance Background Investigation, and, Thereby, NOT Have A Security Clearance Issued To Him, Especially When You Take Into Account His, Seemingly, Shady, elusive, evasive and deceptive Background, Along With The Following Information, Which Is NOT All Inclusive: **To Date, there Are Still Some Pending Law Suits That Have Been Filed Around The Country, To Include Hawaii, Accusing Sen. Obama of Defrauding The American People By Denying Access To The Original Copy of His Typewritten 1961 Birth Certificate (e.g., Original (Vault) Birth Certificate With The State of Hawaii's Official Seal etc.), Which, To Date, He Has Refused To Provide.

**AP Posted An Article on Oct. 31, 2008, Four Days Prior To The Election, Stating That Hawaii State Officials Are Now Suspiciously Confirming That They Have His Original BC and That He Was In Fact Born In Hawaii. In My Opinion, This Article Still Does Not Answer My Question Because, His Half Sister, Who Was, In Fact, Born In Indonesia, Also Has A Birth Certificate Issued By The State of Hawaii: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081031/ap_on_el_pr/ob ...

*"Frank Marshall Davis [was] an activist in Hawaii who died in 1987. Barack Obama met Davis when he was just 10 years old and sought his advice throughout his teen years…Who was he and what kind of an influence did he have on young Barack Obama?"

**"The Chicago Annenberg Challenge stands as Barack Obama's most important executive experience to date. By its own account, CAC was a largely a failure. And a series of critical evaluations point to reasons for that failure, including a poor strategy, to which the foundation over-committed in 1995, and over-reliance on community organizers with insufficient education expertise. The failure of CAC thus raises entirely legitimate questions, both about Obama's competence, his alliances with radical community organizers, and about Ayers's continuing influence over CAC and its board, headed by Obama. Above all, by continuing to fund Ayers's personal projects, and those of his political-educational allies, Obama was lending moral and material support to Ayers's profoundly radical efforts. Ayers's terrorist history aside that makes the Ayers-Obama relationship a perfectly legitimate issue in this campaign.":

**Fred Thompson: Why We Must Be Concerned About Sen. Obama's Presidency: http://infidelsarecool.com/2008/10/24/video-fred-thomspon-obama/ **Note: During My Twenty (20) Year Career In The Marine Corps, I Held A Top Secret DOD Clearance For Approximately Sixteen (16) Years and Was Required, By Law, To Be An Active Member of A Personnel Reliability Program (PRP), As A Means of Retaining My Clearance, Along With A Post-Marine Corps Retirement DOE "Q" Sensitive Clearance. And, Strongly, Feel That President Elect Obama Would Not Pass A Background Investigation, Which Is Required Prior To Being Issued A Sensitive Security Clearance, Due To His Perceived Shady Background, Ties To Communist and/or Radical Individuals or Groups, Along With His Seemingly Elusiveness, Evasiveness and Deception, Which, I Feel, Is Clearly and Factually Documented and Substantiated Above, That Is, Unless He Provides Factual Information, Which Is Provided To Appropriate Officials, Not Only In His Own Words, But is, Ultimately, Supported By Factual Documentation (e.g., Altered Birth Certificate Provided To FactCheck.Com By Someone In His Campaign Staff, etc.), That Would, Subsequently, Disprove All These and Other Numerous Lingering Issues.

Additionally, I View These Actions or Inactions Taken By Him Personally and/or By Someone Else In His Appointed Campaign and Presidential Staff , To Be, Extremely, Critical When You Are About To Be Our President and, Subsequently and Just As Important, The Commander-In-Chief of Our Armed Forces. In My Eyes, If, For Some Unknown Reason, These, Critically Important and, Seemingly, Negative Impacting and Lingering Unanswered Questions and/or Concerns Relating To His Shady Career and/or Personal Background Are Consciously and Deliberately Swept Under The Rug By Him, His Staff and/or The MSM, Which, Combined With Everything Else That, In My Opinion, Has Negatively, Suspiciously and Deliberately Transpired, To Date (e.g., He & Some of His Assigned Presidential Staff's Non-Transparent Actions and/or Inactions, That Have Taken Place During The Process of His Presidential Election Campaign and, Seemingly, Continue During His Post-Election, etc.), and is, More Likely Than Not, Being Perceived By At Least 46% of The American Public, As Being A, Tragically, Possible Reality.

Thanks, Again, To Our Blatantly Biased Main Stream Media (MSM), Which Continues To Ignore These and Other, Seemingly, Critical Issues, Simply Because They May Be Perceived By The American Public As Negatively Impacting Our President Elect, whom They All Have, Unequivocally, Gone Out On The Limb To Get Him Elected Through Their Slanted and Blatantly Biased Political Presidential Election News Coverage.

And, I am Almost Sure That , They Are Aware That, If This Negatively Impacting Information Were To Be Proven and Documented As Being Factual and Made Public Today, They, Along With President Elect Obama, Would See This Action As Being Devastating To Their, Seemingly, Hidden Agenda. Especially Now, Prior To His Formal Presidential Appointment, Which Takes Place In January 2009, Because, In My Opinion, They're All Banking On It Being Kept Under Wraps, At Least, Until After His Formal Appointment (e.g., all the negative Information about him is just NOW being highlighted and shared with the American public by our MSM, although, I feel that it should have been shared with the American Public long before Election Day, etc.). I am Almost Convinced, That They're All Aware That It Would, More Than Likely, Be, Extremely, More Difficult, If NOT, Almost Impossible, To Over-Turn His Election After His Formal Appointment Scheduled for January 2009, and If It Was Overturned Before His Appointment, It Could Also, Possibly, Lead To An All Out Public Uprising In This Country.

The Results of which Would Be, Unquestionably, Tragic For All of Us. But, On The Other Hand, It Would Also Mean That The Dreams of The Likes of our Home Grown TERRORIST (S), Bill Ayers and His 1960's Cronies Would, After All Their Years of Covertly Struggling To See This Happen Would Come True and, In My Opinion, This Has Been One of Their, Primary and Underlying, Goals All Along. Just Imagine, They Could Finally Witness One of Their Primary Goals Coming To Fruition, Which, In Their Eyes, This Could Also Be Seen, As "Mission Accomplished." (By Now Your Are All Probably Thinking To Yourselves That This Theory "Sounds A Little Too Far Fetched and Over The Edge", But Ask Yourselves, Is It Probable and/or Possible?) God Help Us

But, If This Breach of Security Were in fact To Take Place, Specially, Today During Our Current Threatening National Security Climate Here At Home and Abroad, It Would, Undoubtedly, Set An Almost Un-Reversible Precedent, That Would, Subsequently and Understandably, Open The Door To Other National Security Breaches In The Future (e.g., in the future someone else, who also has a hidden agenda would, when discovered as not having the appropriate background credentials to get a security clearance issued to them to allow them to work with sensitive classified information and/or materials would, more than likely ask, if the President can do it, why cant I ,etc.). Which, In My Eyes, Would Also Tragically Impact Our Country's National Security Here At Home and Abroad. Please Refer To The Following Web Sites For More Information Concerning Our Current Growing Terrorist Threats Here At Home and Abroad: **Obama Warned of 'Huge' Terror Plot Friday, November 14, 2008 11:56 PM: http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/obama_terror_plot/2008/11/14/151548.html?s=al&promo_code=7159-1 **U.S. Intel: Terrorist Attack Risk Has Grown Posted On Saturday, November 15, 2008 7:29 PM: http://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/financial_crisis_terror/2008/11/15/151719.html?s=al&promo_code=7159-1

But , After Taking All This Factual Information Into Consideration, He, Alarmingly, Continues To Receive Highly Classified and Sensitive National Security Information: http://www.danielpipes.org/article/5983 I Didn't Intentionally Mean To Rattle On Endlessly,

But, I Hope That, After Taking The Time To Read All The Information, You'll Realize and Better Understand My Reason(s) For Considering This Issue To Be An, Extremely, URGENT and Time Sensitive Issue, Due To The Fast Approaching Formal Presidential Appointment Scheduled For January 2009. The Basic Reason(s) For My Concerns Relating To This Issue Were Based On My Approximately Nine (9) Years of Military Experience, Where I Served As A Member of A Marine Corps Ground Nuclear Weapons Program,

In The Following Positions: 1.) Nuclear Weapons Mechanical Assembly and Maintenance Technician, As A Staff Non-Commissioned Officer; and, 2.) Ground Nuclear Weapons Employment Officer, Where My Duties Also Included Those of Being The Western Pacific Nuclear Weapons Transportation and Security Instructor and Inspector, As A Commissioned Officer. And, The Only Way That I Could Legally Perform My Sensitive Nuclear Weapons Duties Was By Having An Active Top Secret Security Clearance Issued To Me, Which Also Required Me To Be An Active Member of A Personnel Reliability Program (PRP), That Was Strictly Adhered To, As A Means of Maintaining My Security Clearance Active. I, Analytically, Decided (e.g., Considered The Pros And Cons, etc.), To Take The Risk of Sharing My Military Background and Experience With All of You, But I Did This Only After Taking Into Account, What I Now Perceive As, The Urgency of This Issue and The Tragic Consequences , Along With The Long Lasting Negative Effect It Could Possibly Have On Our Country's National Security Here At Home and Abroad.

And, If I Were To Take This Issue Lightly, and, Thereby, Sharing Only My Concerns, Without Supporting Them With My Personal Hands-On Knowledge and/or Experience, Which I Consider As Being Unacceptable, But Could Possibly Keep Me From Making My Point and, Thereby, Failing to Clearly and Factually Highlight Those Concerns

. The Bottom Line Being That I Would Have In Effect Wasted Half A Day of My Precious Time To Haphazardly Write My Concerns Down and Yours To Read Them, and, Consequently, Moving On Without Taking Them Serious. All Because, I Failed To Support Them With Hands-On Knowledge and Experience Relating To The Issue, A Risk That I Wasn't Ready To Take Because of Its Seriousness.

Have A Great Day & Week. Semper Fi!
