A while ago, a friend of mine said that President Obama has just answered a question about the Iran deal on quora.com. I thought then it is just a fake profile claiming to be Obama and giving answers to some questions on Quora. But my friend insisted that it's actually Obama, and sent me a link to that page. I didn't bother to look further and forgot about it afterwards.

Now I have just remembered that and went to see the link my friend sent me. Oddly the link won't open for me and I am facing Error404, but a search on Google says that there was a question about Iran deal, which Obama answered. Was this real? Is it the only answer from Obama on Quora or there are other questions there, which he has answered?

    If the profile picture is one of Obama, then it MUST be him! Sep 30, 2016 at 16:01

Quora have a verified profile system which states

The verified checkmark icon appears on profile pages for well-known and high-visibility public figures in general interest domains like business, entertainment, government, religion, journalism, sports and other areas.

The profile of Barack Obama has the quora verified profile checkmark.

You can see from the profile linked above that a total of 6 questions have been answered by this account.

Are they written by Mr Obama himself, or a staffer? That's a question for another day!
