In a letter to Mike Zullo dated May 10, Richard S. Flahavan, Associate Director for Public and Intergovernmental, confirms that original copies of Selective Service registrations (the “record copy”) on microfilm are maintained in a secure facility, as well as a working copy. A computer database is also maintained for registrants born after January 1, 1960.
We’ve seen images of the microfilm registration form, and a screen shot from the computer system obtained in 2008 for Barack Obama.
In what appears to be a jab at the Cold Case Posse, Flahavan said:
…access is available to law enforcement organizations with Federal jurisdiction that are conducting an authorized Federal investigation.
I.e., “not you, buddy.”
The inquiry that prompted this letter is based an a birther’s silly reading of a Federal regulation that permitted destruction of non-record copies of registrations that weren’t needed any more. See my article: “Obama’s draft registration: conspiracies simmer”.
