Dans un article médiocre d'Alex Spillius, le journaliste du Daily Telegraph fait un point orienté et partial sur les différentes procédures judiciaires qui concernent le statut juridique du nouveau président des Etats-Unis.
Le journaliste se garde bien de préciser à ses lecteurs que le principal responsable de cette situation est le président lui-même (BHO) en refusant de rendre public l'original de son extrait de naissance. Il a seulement publié un certificat de l'Etat de Hawaï lequel n'est pas en mesure de clore le débat car il ne précise pas son lieu précis de naissance.
Nous ignorons, par exemple, dans quel hôpital il est né, quel a été son médecin, etc. Qu'a-t-il donc à cacher ?
Barack Obama fights presidential eligibility claims
Barack Obama is being forced to repel a series of writs challenging his presidential eligibility, as conspiracy theories claiming he is not an American citizen refuse to go away.
Officials in Hawaii have confirmed Mr Obama was born in Honolulu Photo: Reuters
The most common allegation lawyers are having to refute is that a certificate of Mr Obama's birth in Hawaii is false, leading accusers to conclude that he was born outside the country and is therefore disqualified to fill the highest office in the land.
Other challengers have contended that his Kenyan father was British, even though that would not exclude him from occupying the White House.
Both claims are untrue. Officials in Hawaii said they had viewed Mr Obama's original certificate and confirmed it stated he was born in Honolulu on Aug 4, 1961. A certified version of the certificate released by his campaign last summer when the theory began circulating showed the same. Birth notices in Hawaii papers record a birth to his mother and father on the same day.
But that has not stopped the theorists, who have been dubbed "the Birthers" and who see Mr Obama as a fifth columnist. Their accusations are often tinged with racism and antipathy to Islam, the religion of his father. During his campaigns Mr Obama faced an online rumour mill that he was a Muslim, though he has worshipped at a Christian church for 20 years.
The conservative website WorldNet Daily claims to have received 300,000 signatures for an online petition challenging Mr Obama's legitimacy.
Orly Taitz, a California dentist and lawyer, who was herself born overseas, is representing soldiers challenging Mr Obama's right to be president, including retired Maj Gen Carroll Childers, who compared the Democrat to "Hitler, Stalin, Saddam, Mao, and Kim Jong Il".
"He is an interloper, a usurper, a fake, a scam artist, a Chicago crook, a recipient of bribes and gratuitous income for which he paid no tax, a socialist (perhaps only a communist or Marxist), and a grave danger to the future of the America that I love and have protected since I was 17 years old," Maj Gen Childers wrote in a statement on the website for Ms Taitz's Defend Our Freedoms Foundation. The rumour got closest to the mainstream when Richard Shelby, an Alabama senator, gave it credibility during a recent meeting with constituents.
Asked for his views on the notion, the Cullman Times, an Alabama paper, quoted Mr Shelby as saying: "Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate. You have to be born in America to be president."
The White House regards the claims as an irritant and is not responding to questions about them, but lawyers for the Democratic National Committee and Mr Obama himself have spent considerable time and money combating a steady supply of lawsuits at every court level up to the Supreme Court. The exact cost to Mr Obama himself is not known.
The hubbub over the president's place of birth, which is aided and abetted by the internet, seems likely to last for some time, if not his entire presidency.
Other presidents have been victims of wild conspiracy theories.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were submitted to accusations that they were involved in the "murder" of White House counsel and old friend Vince Foster. Three investigations by different arms of authority ruled he had committed suicide.
President George W Bush still faces conspiracy theorists who claim that he and Dick Cheney were responsible for the September 11 attacks, as a way of drumming support for future wars. His botched response to Hurricane Katrina was supposedly designed to take the city out of the control of the poor and the black community, some theorists allege.
In the recent past there have been theories that Bill Clinton was the anti-Christ and Al Gore was a vampire.
Evan Harrington, a professor of social psychology who has studied conspiracy theories at the University of Chicago, Mr Obama's home town, said that they were essentially rumours writ large by people with a thirst for publicity.
"Thinking that you are on to information that no one else has got really makes you feel important," said Prof Harrington, who has himself been accused by conspiracy theorists of being part of a campaign to hide information about mind control of the public.
"For a conspiracy theory to exist you have to have a willingness to suspend belief or ignore evidence that doesn't fit. It's a rare individual who believes them but they are the ones who get the attention."
La différence de format des certificats de naissance, vous montrent clairement une modification de l'acte de naissance. Obama a admis à plusieurs reprises, avant de devenir président, qu'il était né au Kenya.
