It is true that Barack Obama's birth was registered in Hawaii and it is true that the registration document has been made public on the website but no one, not even Obama, will state categorically that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. Therefore, it is possible that he was born in Kenya and the birth was later registered in Hawaii as alleged. If these allegations are true, since both of his parents were not American citizens, then Barack is not a natural born American citizen. If they are not true, then Obama should make this statement "I was born in Hawaii". So far he has not made that statement saying only that his birth was duly registered in Hawaii. If there is any irregularity in this case, then Mr. McCain has been granted a call option for the presidency. If he wins, he will be elected president. If he loses, he will exercise his call option in the Supreme Court and be appointed president.

It's not possible that he was born in Kenya. The latest news shows that he was born in Hawaii:

State declares Barack Obama's Hawaii birth certificate is genuine

HONOLULU (AP) _ State officials say there's no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.

Fukino says that no state official, including Republican Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama's certificate be handled differently.

She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.

(and this slightly different account:)

Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate confirmed
Pacific Business News (Honolulu)

The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed on Friday what Barack Obama has been saying all along: the presidential candidate was born in Honolulu.

“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate,” said Chiyome Fukino. “State law prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.”

Citing her statutory authority to oversee and maintain Hawaii’s vital records, Fukino said she has “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

“No state official, including Gov. Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii,” Fukino added.

Lingle, a Republican, has been campaigning on the Mainland for Obama’s opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

Obama, a Democratic senator from Illinois, was born Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu. He graduated high school at Punahou School in 1979.

End quote:

These two versions of the same report seem clear enough. The birth certificate is on file in Hawaii and it is valid.

However, the opponents of Obama simply will not give up. I have seen one Web comment that went along these lines: "It could have been a valid Kenyan birth certificate on file in Hawaii that the Hawaii official was talking about."

Laughable, of course, why would a Kenyan birth certificate be filed in Hawaii?
