Official Birth Certificate
The debate over Obama's citizenship should be a rather short and simple one. While some have little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, the entire matter can be resolved by his answering one simple question:
What passport did he use when he was shuttling between
New York, Jakarta, and Karachi?
How did a young Obama who arrived in New York in early June 1981,
without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?
And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi, what passport was he using when he went through Customs and Immigration?
Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A: Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport.
2) He traveled with a British passport.
3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible as Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.
So, when Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport. If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, and not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were traveling on an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008.
