Obama’s Kenyan Birth Certificate
The intrepid journalists at WorldNetDaily have discovered this document and ask, “Is this really smoking gun of Obama’s Kenyan birth?”
The short answer is No. As Steven Taylor notes,
For some odd reason, the document is dated 1964 (Obama was born in 1961) and yet this document appears to mean more to the Birthers at WND than do contemporaneous birth announcements in Hawaiian newspapers at the time and the official birth certificate as issued by the state of Hawaii.
It also appears to be the case that Kenya did not declare itself to be the “Republic of Kenya” until December 1964, yet the document in question is dated February 17, 1964 and uses the phrase “Republic of Kenya” (see here).
A site dedicated to exploring the whole birther issue finds several other problems and strange coincidences.
Of course, there simply is no conceivable evidence that would convince those who think Obama isn’t legitimately the president that he was born here.
