The state of Hawaii claims that the “birth certificate” for Barack Obama in its files – presumably the document that was copied and distributed by the White House – remains confidential.
The image released April 27 by the White House was described by administration officials as “proof positive” of Obama’s Hawaiian birth.
At that time, officials in Hawaii’s health department and governor’s office refused to provide confirmation to WND that the image released by the White House accurately represented the birth documentation in the state’s custody.
The request came from California attorney Orly Taitz in her lawsuit against the commissioner of the Social Security Administration over records related to Obama. A judge in Washington, D.C., recently moved the case into the discovery stage, at which point attorneys are allowed to subpoena records that may prove their case.
The case brought by Taitz is seeking the original application for Obama’s Social Security number, a document that could reveal information about the president’s early life relevant to his eligibility to be president.
