    How did President Obama get the scar on his skull?

    A few times over the last months when the President is on television I've noticed a scar on his skull. A friend suggested he may have had an accident in his youth but I haven't heard about any accident he experienced so am still curious. Does anyone know how Mr. Obama came to have this scar? Thanks!

    A blow to the head. Hmmm, that would explain a lot.

    That's from giving that reporter a piece of his mind.

      he can't afford to give anyone a piece of his mind. He doesn't have one

    I've heard about this from before his election. So far as I know, no answer has ever been made public. As if another were needed, it's an additional illustration that no one really knows who Obama is. The press never vetted him, still hasn't. He's a plastic molding, a face with a fictional autobiography, a manufactured character designed for a political campaign, a movie production professionally marketed. His presidency is a bizarre chapter in American history into which scholars will be digging for a long time.

    I just Googled it and you wouldn't believe the wierd conjectures about this. Brain surgery is one of the biggest. There are no definitive answers though. Obama is hiding his medical history too, along with the original birth certificate, his school transcripts, and even which colleges and Universities he went to at what time. He hides so much that it makes you wonder what kind of deep, dark secret he is hiding from the world.

      His original birth certificate has been an open book since before the election. It's funny how these conspiracy theories persist in the face of facts

      Open book? Obama's been anything but an open book on anything.

      Don't get me wrong. I believe he's a U.S. citizen. I just don't believe he's an American in his heart. He doesn't believe in the Constitution as a president should.

      Yes, the birth certificate is a fraud. I'm a man of logic and science. There are videos on Youtube in which experts explain how the document was fabricated. I can't believe some people still believe it's just a theory. It's a real conspiracy.

      In 2008 Lucas D. Smith smuggled a certified copy of Obama's Birth Certificate out of Kenya and filed it w/Taitz in California court as evidence in Keyes v. Obama Citizenship. The "birth certificate" is also noted on p.26 of "Dreams from My Father".

    The first I had heard about this was about a year ago.  I do not recall anybody mentioning this during the 2008 election cycle.  Some have voiced how the scar pattern is consistent with  that of a rear craniotomy.  Yet others point out how it also emulates the scar that can be left following a Shiite Muslim ritual performed on young children by an imam as a form of blessing.  It involves slicing the scalp with a dagger as the child is held by the parents.

    Now, one must remember that he is the son of a Muslim.  Likewise, he is also the stepson of a Muslim.  He did attend Koranic studies, by his own admission in his book "Dreams of My Father," as a child in Jakarta.  It would not be too far fetched to postulate that perhaps as a child he was submitted to a Muslim ritual that is performed on millions of Muslim children.  This does not mean that he is a Muslim.  After all, in adulthood he could have chosen whatever religious path he so wanted.  However, it could be the origin of the scar; and why it has never been expanded upon publicly.

    Of course, this latter theory also has plenty of holes.  First, Indonesia has a Muslim population of over 200 million, but the majority is Sunni.  Only 1% or so is Shia.  Second, his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, has always been described as being somewhat modernist, not quite so prone to engage or adhere to all customs.  It would seem that Soetero was Sunni, not Shiite, so why submit a young Obama to a Shiite ritual?

    So, unless Obama himself addresses this issue and many others, we will likely never know.  Therefore, his administration should not be outraged if the public speculates widely and broadly.

      Slicing the scalp with a dagger is a part of the Shiite Muslim ritual? That is very scary! I feel bad for those children.

      well as he came from Kenya who knows how he got that scare as his father a Kenyan its any bodies guess.

    It could as easily be from a bike accident as a child, a sporting accident as an adolescent, or a bad hair cut.

    And none of us has time to listen to every minute of  President Obama's life, nor does he have time to tell us. (It'd be like that show "24" but going on for years and years and years...)

    So, by the definition of "none of us has the time to know everything about President Obama", there will always be something that can be defined as a "mystery" or "conspiracy".

    I wish people would give more time to thinking about things that matter, like how to get all of the children of the US above the poverty level or how to get the political parties to work together in the interests of the American people, rather than creating conspiracies about things that really don't matter.

    I'd be interested in knowing about that scar, but I'm not going to make up scary stories about it...

      It would just be nice if we knew SOMETHING about his life, some of that TRANSPARENCY that he is always talking about. Yes, we need a lot of jobs to do better. There are no more jobs than a year ago. Except federal jobs. We don't need more of those.

    2. Catherine Kane profile image82
      Catherine Kaneposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Becky, there are a lot more jobs than there were when he took office-not just government jobs. Remember when W had the US economy trembling on the brink of collapse? Not there now.

      As for knowing about him, there're currently 2 books on his life out

    3. Becky Katz profile image85
      Becky Katzposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      And many of the facts in his books do not check out. I believe it was Columbia University that he says he was at for two years, they say he was only there for nine months.

      Becky, some wouldn't know the truth if it smacked them up side the head as they are too far in the tank for Barack Hussein Obama to see it.

      The BLS sez there are 133 mil nonfarm payroll jobs in May, the latest month available, while in Jan 09, the month BO took office, there were 134 mil. Not sure how a negative number becomes "a lot more." Maybe the scar has something to do with it.

      If one were to take into account the people that have simply dropped out of the work force in the time that Obama has been in office, the true unemployment rate would be over 14%. Of course one shouldn't mention such things.  How dare I mention it!

      Ladies, gentlemen, I have strong opinions about our presidents, too, but this question was just about the scar. I really wasn't looking to open a can of political debate worms here.

    I never realized or noticed that he had a scar on his head. This is the first I've heard of it.  Another testimony about all the interesting things you can learn by visiting Hubpages.

    Like longhunter commented, mention Obama and things can get heated.
    Same thing happens on comment boards on the newpaper websites.

      This Frankenstein Obama is a monster made by the Illuminati.  Obama is less than half-black due to the fact a paternal(?) Great-grandmother was 100 percent Arab-Bedouin which is Caucasoid.  BHO is the Antichrist.  Up ahead- martial-law. Ephesians 6:1

    I have no idea how Obama got his scar, but I have a very similar one on the back of my head.

    My scar is the result of my being brutally beaten by a whole squad of LAPD officers in August, 1965, during the "Watts Riots" in Los Angeles.

    And when that happened, my mother said those policemen beat some sense into my head -- and when I looked back at it years later, I agreed with her.

      Beth, those cops taught me that the only time I should enter a men's clothing store is when it is open for business. And they also taught me that I am not supposed to walk into a closed store and help myself to whatever I want. ;-)

    I googled this to try and find his answer to this question. Apparently it has never come up in a full scale live interview.

    I am always amused by the US love for conspiracy theories. I have scars on my legs, now I wonder what my co workers think about me.

    I will follow this question.

    The scar is a common genetic trait of those who come from the planet AMABO. This is a planet, not in the Milky Way Galaxy, but in the Nutmeg Galaxy many light years away.

    Looks like a bad haircut to me. Now, can anyone explain the goofy look that sits on Mr. Romney's face? Including the 'crazy eyes'?

      Maybe the scar is the result of a teleprompter implantation.

    I thought the President addressed the issue of the scar by not answering any questions about it - isn't that how he handles all the phony scandals? After all if it is phony it doesn't merit an answer.

    Of course it could be that like he just said there was  "Not even a smidgen of corruption" concerning the IRS scandal (despite the investigation is ongoing and Lerner took the 5th) it could be he would say there isn't a smidgen of evidence of a scar on his head. Fox put it there so they could make money and be successful duping their frustrated, bitter gun toting viewers who cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them.
    Yep, no secrets here, just phony scars, phony scandals, phony Fox News and yes pray for all those misguided Fox viewers who are making Fox News rich and successful at the Messiah's expense!
