U.S. Supreme Court Decides Whether to Hear Obama Birth Certificate Lawsuit
The Washington Times is reporting that on December 5, 2008, the United States Supreme Court will decide whether to hear a case brought by Leo Donofrio that alleges that although President Elect Obama was born in Hawaii, he is actually a British citizen, due to the nationality of Mr. Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr.
At the time of the President Elect's birth, in the year 1961, his father's homeland, Kenya * (Please see below.), remained under British colonial rule, not gaining so called independence from Great Britain until 1963.
The article states that if the court decides to hear the case:
It would mark the first time in American history the questionable citizenship of a winning presidential candidate would go before the Supreme Court.
The claim that President Elect Barack Obama, former candidate and senator, was ineligible to serve as President of the United States, due to circumstances surrounding his birth, has been circulating in newspapers, magazines, on television and the internet for almost two years.
There are more than a dozen lawsuits, in at least six states, making their way through those states' court systems.

“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.
Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”
