Oy. His citizenship issue was way simpler and yet more serious than where his parents had citizenship or him having been a child in Indonesia. Sheesh. He never had USA citizenship because
A) he was born in Canada to a teen mom too young to confer USA citizenship on him, was supposed to be given up for adoption in Canada but she kept him at the last minute.
B) it apparently was not important enough to his mother to naturalize him.
Either way, he was wholly ineligible to run for the Presidency.
Which is why the senate debate in Illinois between him and Alan Keyes was scrubbed from the internet. Early in the primary in 07-08, I saw it right here on FR. Keyes and Obama were sitting at the same table. Keyes at one point says to Obama, You werent even born in this counTry! And Obama answers, We are talking about the senate here, not the presidency!
He won that election and was at some point handed a ceremonial US Passport to use on senate trips.
That video was never seen here
We do not know where he was born, period.

This never happened. Even Alan Keyes did recall it happening. NO ONE has produced a video ever! And if you want to spend the time, as I DID. You still watch that entire debate in the CSPAN archives.
Senate Resolution 511 should have finished his campaign. I suspect if someone were to question Senator Leahy, he would spill the beans. SR 511 was to vet McCain - there was no resolution to vet Soetoro. The committee consisted of Soetoro, Hellary, Leahy, McCaskill, and two others I can’t be bothered to look up. Thing is, McCaskill has tried for years before to get the required NBC stricken from the Constitution. They brought in Homeland Security Chertoff for his understanding of NBC. Chertoff and Leahy both recorded their opinion of born in the US with both parents being US citizens. That six member committee approved of the DEFINITION and signed their names to it.
Done and done. Stick a fork in it. Soetoro was never eligible. Leahy had their discussion of it on his website for years for a reason. The reason, I suspect, is he knows about the Kenyan.
