Is Barack Obama a natural born citizen? Was his legal name changed when he was adopted?

More questions than answers! 3 experts say that the birth certificate released by his campaign is a forgery. Artifacts left behind seem to indicate that his sister's bc was used. She was born in Indonesia but has a HI bc. How did this happen? His grandma says he was actually born in KENYA. His legal name may be Barry Soetoro as he was adopted by his stepfather. He may have have citizenship in various countries. He traveled on a Indonesian passport to Pakistan and India

Update 2:

Apparently laws don't prevent you from running for President if you are ineligible but you must be certified to SERVE.

Update 3:

If in fact he was adopted by his stepfather(severing all rights and national identity of the mother as required by Indonesian law),attended school there as an Indonesian, traveled at 18 or 19 years of age on an Indonesian pasport.

Update 4:

Sorry-passport. If his legal name is Barry Soetoro, he cannot be elected and serve as Barack Obama and yes there is a lawsuit about this issue that the media is NOT covering.

Update 5:

btw..... Factchecker is part of a group where Obama and buddy Ayers served on a board together. Now they wouldn't be biased in checking his BC would they?

Update 6:

McCain IS NOT at issue because he was born to American Parents while his father served in the military. His citizenship is not at question... good try though

    He appears to have been born in Kenya. the birth certificate he produced is FAKE. His mother renounced her US citizenship, but when? She is dead. When, where, how , why? Does she have a death certificate? His Grandmother, ?Dunham?, lives SOMEWHERE in Hawaii. Will she speak up? About her wayward daughters particulars? Obama may need a green card to stay in this country.

    What does it matter? He's not your candidate and what about John McCain. He was born in the Panama Canal! I don't think Obama will be an U. S. Senator if something was up. }{

    The whole thing is fustrating. Other candidates have to show proof actual originals. How come he can get away with it all?

    This remains to be seen, but there is a lawsuit in PA to determine if he is in fact qualified by that standard to be president.

    I do not know either way, as the internet leaves unfounded claims easy ways to look true, but there is a lot of questioning going on which does make me interested in finding out the truth.

    another...it is time to stop spewing that and making yourself look ignorant. Any US military base around the world is considered American soil. He was born on a US military base in the Panama Canal Zone. This qualifies as AMERICAN SOIL! Plus, being born to two natural born citizens also qualifies as a natural born citizen.

    Barack obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. No, his legal name wasn't changed. His father (Barack Sr.) was born in Kenya and his mother (a caucasion women by the name of Ann Dunham) was born an all American born in Kansas.

    Sorry buddy, the only candidate in this race that wasn't born on American soil was John S. McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal.

    No he is not, as soon as the lawsuit against him is heard for this reason, he'll be striped of everything he obtained. Barry Soetoro(his real name) will NEVER be our president.

    Does it matter? He is still running for president so obviously these things were closely looked at.
