You mean someone like the US government? Who cleared Obama?
Nah, they don't do background checks or anything...

John McCain is not a natural born US citizen. He can't be according the standard definition saying that one needs to be born on US soil or territory . He is however a citizen by law or what is called a statutory citizen, which is not necessarily the same as a naturalized citizen which implies foreign citizenship status prior to being granted US citizenship. McCain was simply declared a US citizen that doesn't have him being defined as a natural born or naturalized citizen.
Another note: US military installations are not necessarily considered US territory or soil. US military installations do in fact exist on foreign territories and soil. That is why there is still some question as to whether John McCain is eligible to be POTUS.
