#1 I've read Bambi did the same--foreign student scholarship money funded his education. Producing a legit birth certificate is a "damned if U do, damned if U don't" for POTUS.

#2 Actually, I consider the fact that he claimed to be a foreign student to be more damning than the phantom birth certificate.
If he calls himself a foreigner, he's a foreigner. As POTUS, he definately does not have America's interests in mind.

#3 My guess, and it is ONLY a guess, is that he held both a US Passport and an Indonesian passport. The question of how he visited Pakistan as a student has yet to be answered as well. Using an Indonesian passport could, I say again could, account for it.

#5 Aside from the POTUS mess. Seems like all we do now is allow ourselves to derail into the Obama is a zero mode and slip from the real WOT issues. This guy Awlaki has been on the radar for a lot longer than Bambi has been around. We knew, through open sources, he was involved in 911. We knew his Mosque in the DC area was involved. We should have put a bullet in his head a long time ago. Instead, our FBI gatered evidence, interviewed people, acted like beat cops at a robery, built a case -or not- against him and let this guy escape the US. We have not heard the last of him or felt the last of his violence. We now have the even tougher task of finding him, try Yemen Mr OGA director, hunting him down and killing him. Because he will be back, and more Americans will die.
