This document doesn’t prove what they claim it does
The "Certification of Live Birth" posted online and presented by Barack Obama as documentation of his reported Hawaiian birth doesn’t "prove" his birth alone, according to government officials interviewed by WND.
According to State Department officials, such a short-form birth document might be accepted as documentation of a U.S. birth for a passport if it meets certain requirements. Their conclusion is that the law is "complicated."
And state officials in Hawaii independently told WND that such documents are issued only when certain standards have been met.
But those requirements and standards leave the door open to some circumstances under which the COLB image does not prove what it purports.
WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility to be president based on doubts that he was born in the U.S. or was granted "natural born" citizenship at birth. The U.S. Constitution requires that the president be a "natural born" citizen.
