AFA General Manager Posts Hoax Obama 'Foreign Student' ID
Buster Wilson, the general manager of the American Family Association’s radio network who already revealed himself to be a quasi-birther, is now pushing and tweeting a photo purportedly of Barack Obama’s student ID card from Columbia University. Notably, the card lists Obama as a “foreign student”:
I received this from someone this weekend. It’s interesting. Good questions. Read it and maybe you’ll want to pass it along as well.
I am passing this on as received
(NOTE: Notice that on “Barry’s” Columbia University Student Card it lists him as a “FOREIGN STUDENT”!)
However, as the myth-busting website Snopes.com reports, “the ID card pictured above is not a real Columbia University student ID issued to Barack Obama (under any name), nor does it reflect the appearance of student ID cards used by that institution during the time Barack Obama was a student there from 1981-83.” Indeed, the “image is merely an altered version of a Columbia University ID card issued to another student in 1998”:
Naturally, Wilson began his program AFA Today by stating that he has a “great inward burden about the truth and validity of the things that I say” because he is “going to be accountable to God” for “every idle word” he says and teaches.
