American Thinker has published a very good piece regarding the growing controversy surrounding Senator Obama's refusal to allow the public to see his original "vault" birth certificate.
Disclosing the witnessed birth certificate would put to rest once and for all questions regarding whether Obama was born in Hawaii. There have been rumors to the contrary, including a story that his paternal grandmother witnessed his birth in a hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.
The computerized certificate which has previously been released is not the original birth certificate, and is questionable as at the time the Senator was born it may have been possible for a foreign birth to be registered in Hawaii.
I find Senator Obama's refusal in this matter quite odd. It seems as though a potential President should be more than happy to prove that he meets the Constitutional requirements for the office he seeks and end the issue permanently.
