You forget the pencil marks. They were handwritten. More importantly, Fukino was just ONE of the three Hawaii officials that we know all of whom have seen the original birth certificate in the file. Fukino, Onaka and the current Director of Health, Fuddy. All of whom say that the is a birth certificate in the file and that it shows that Obama was born in Hawaii.<quoted text>
In addition, there is a fourth official, whose name is not known, the clerk who filled in the computer form that generated the short-form birth certificate. That is done by a clerk looking at the document in the files and filling in the facts on the computer form. If there were no original document in the files, that could not be done. And if the original document did not show that Obama was born in Honolulu, the clerk could not enter "Honolulu." But she or he did enter Honolulu.
So we have at least four witnesses, and there is the teacher who wrote home to her father, named Stanley, about a birth recently in Hawaii to a woman named Stanley.( http://web.archive.org/web/20110722055908/htt... ).
In addition to this evidence, there is the birth notices that were sent to the Hawaii newspapers by the DOH of Hawaii in 1961. Only the DOH could send notices to the section of the papers called "Health Bureau Statistics," where Obama's notice appeared, and the DOH only sent those notices for births that it had issued birth certificates for, and it only issued birth certificates for births in Hawaii. Hawaii law did not allow birth notices to be issued for births outside of Hawaii until 1982.
In addition to this proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, there is absolutely no proof that he was born in any foreign country.
It should be obvious that a child born outside of the USA requires either a US visa on a foreign passport or to be entered on the mothers US passport to get to the USA. This is not only the case now, it was the case in the 1960s as well.
Those documents or the applications for them would still exist and would have been found easily IF Obama was born outside of the USA. But no such document has been found. The Kenyan government, btw, has stated that it did an investigation of the claims that Obama was born there, and it determined that the claims are not true.
