World Nut Daily Finds "Obama's Kenyan Birth Certificate"

Is this really smoking gun of Obama's Kenyan birth?

The Nuts at WND claimed they have found Obama's real birth certificate and they claim they are trying to authenticity the document. If you wanna read the whole thing, just follow the link. Oh, yeah, they have pics too of the "Real Birth Certificate"

Please if you follow the WND link, there is a link to Orly Taitz's site with a pic of the birth certificate. I am not sure if it true, but it contains a virus. DO NOT FOLLOW IT OR SAVE IT. It is to be seeing if this is someone's attempt to infect the birthers with a virus or not.

Looks convincing, huh ? Well, not so much.

First of all, there’s a question of why a birth registration record would be issued in 1964 for a child born three years earlier who was not even living in the country at the time. This is significant because any original birth record would be a British colonial record, not a Kenyan record. Kenya was still a British colony in 1961, and did not become independent until December 12, 1963.

Strike One

This leads to the second problem with the purported birth certificate. From December 12, 1963 until December 12, 1964, the official title of Kenya was the Dominion of Kenya. It wasn’t until a year later, on December 12, 1964 that the Republic of Kenya came into existence. And yet, the document above, issued on February 17, 1964 purports to have been issued on behalf of the Office of Principal Registrar, Coast Province, Republic of Kenya.

Strike Two

Finally, this actually allegation has come up before, albeit without documentary “proof” purporting to establish it, and seemingly debunked:

The document, supposedly “certified with an embossed seal” and “witness signatures” says America’s next commander in chief was born at Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa at 7:24pm on August 4, 1961.

Officials at the hospital confirm they’ve been besieged with requests for information on Obama’s birth but haven’t been able to find any record of it.

“We do not have computerized records going back to the 1960’s and can only sort through our archives by hand,” Dr. Christopher Mwanga, an administrator at the Mombasa hospital tells GLOBE. “We have searched for all the names of babies born on Aug. 4, 1961, and have not found the name of Barack Hussein Obama. That is all I can tell you.”

The hospital has no records, and yet there’s this document, purportedly created three years after Obama’s birth, by officials of a country that wouldn’t exist for another ten months, that has miraculously appeared.

Strike Three.

Something tells me that the birthers are going to be sadly disappointed when this one is revealed for the forgery it most likely is.
