Fascinating stuff from Andrew McCarthy, who successfully prosecuted the blind sheik after the first WTC bombings in '93.
Although he has no doubts that Obama was born in Hawaii, he sides with the "birthers" that what the President has so far put forward is inadequate. A "certification" of birth is not the same as a "certificate" of birth.
Furthermore, he says the more we learn about Obama the more questions there are, such as his not mentioning his 1980/1 trip to Pakistan in his 850-page autobiography even though he stayed with important people. And there are embellishments in Dreams of My Father that fellow co-workers have called the president out on. It's likely that not only was Obama a Kenyan citizen, but perhaps also an Indonesian one as the young son of Lolo Soetero.
And why would Obama not welcome Hawaii’s release of any record in its possession about the facts and circumstances of his birth? Isn’t that kind of weird? It would, after all, make the whole issue go away and, if there’s nothing there, make those who’ve obsessed over it look like fools. Why should I need any better reason to be curious than Obama’s odd resistance to so obvious a resolution?
There’s speculation out there from the former CIA officer Larry Johnson — who is no right-winger and is convinced the president was born in Hawaii — that the full state records would probably show Obama was adopted by the Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro and became formally known as “Barry Soetoro.” Obama may have wanted that suppressed for a host of reasons: issues about his citizenship, questions about his name (it’s been claimed that Obama represented in his application to the Illinois bar that he had never been known by any name other than Barack Obama), and the undermining of his (false) claim of remoteness from Islam. Is that true? I don’t know and neither do you.
Contrasted with the media's desperate desire to dig up some dirt/gossip on Sarah Palin in Alaska, there's been very little interest in the President's past even where legitimate questions may be raised.

Re: Former Federal Prosecutor Opines on Obama's Past
Patsfan already posted a link to an article showing why the release of his long-form b.c. would not settle anything. After all, if he released his long for b.c. and it showed that it was applied for by mail, or by a family friend who witnessed the birth, or by a deceased doctor, the birthers would simply raise a new set of questions. Perhaps some of the righties are naive enough to believe the issue would go away if Obama provided even more info than the State Dept. requires, but the author of the article is simply dishonest.
