Obama’s birthplace mystery raises doubts

The U.S. state of Hawaii has once again checked and confirmed that President Barack Obama was really born in that state and, so, is a natural-born American citizen.

But bloggers and TV commentators arguing Obama was born outside America are becoming increasingly vocal.

American President Barack Obama is being asked a lot of questions, but this one is particularly embarrassing: was he or was he not born in the U.S.?

There remains a group of people in the U.S. who say that Barack Obama is ineligible to be president, not because he did not win the election but because he was not born in the U.S. and his birth certificate is a forgery.

But officials in Hawaii confirm that Barack Obama was born there and Congress also insists Obama’s birthplace is Hawaii.

White House correspondent for World-Net-Daily, Les Kinsolving, says Obama’s birth certificate is not

proof because there is neither a doctor’s name nor the name of the hospital on it.

“A full birth certificate should list the name of the doctor and the hospital – that is missing. If he [Barack Obama] has a real birth certificate with the name of the hospital and the physician – he ought to display it!”
