Not only does your argument not hold water in the United States, it holds no water in most civilized and even "uncivilized" countries of this world. In most cases, you are born somewhere, you are a bona fide citizen of that country, unless you're a member of the diplomatic corps. What's more, and yes, of course, Obama had every right to be a Kenyan citizen, still has, because his father was Kenyan. But as long as he is an American citizen, and does not, at age of majority, usually 21, pursue a dual Kenyan citizenship, he is a 100% full-blooded United States citizen. Period. And Kenya or the U.K. has jurisdiction over him. Were he detained in Kenya after his presidency as a plain American citizen, he would be entitled to full consular representation though, and this is important, Kenya could darn well do what it wanted to Obama, Kenyan citizen or not. Thousands of Americans, thousands, are imprisoned in foreign countries as we speak and there is nothing the U.S. gov't can do about it, and that applies to dual AND non-dual citizens. Consular assistance is all they are allowed, when the host country respects the Vienna convention - and it does not always, as we can see in Russia with the Greenpeace captain and his crew. Consular assistance is limited to advice, to securing local legal aid and contacting the family in the U.S. and on request of detainee, ask for funds.<quoted text>LMAO!!! It really doesn't matter where Obama was born, at the moment of birth he was a citizen of his father's country of origin and not subject to the jurisdiction of the US.
Want to know more? Ask about the Vienna convention on Consular assistance, 1963, article 36, from memory.
