It's certainly not good enough for me. A Wiki Answers forum? The two answers below it contradict that one. Is it good enough for you?
Has yet to be proven to my satisfaction.
This entire opening post is about Kenya
Not in my opinion. It's more like taking a Jackson Pollock painting and connecting dots to create a pastoral scene.

Ah, so you hate the bailouts, but you don't care if your president is not legally eligable for the job?
Is it not obvious that these lies and these crimes come from the same force?
Obama is a citizen of Kenya..

The US really has no control over the laws of Kenya and how they qualify Kenyan citizenship.

They think that as US citizens we have a right to challenge the presidents eligibility.
Statements like these # me off more than anything.
We are not servants to the government the Government is a servant to us. When the decision came down that US citizens have no standing to challenge the authority of the president, that is the most unconstitutional thing ever.
In the first Amendment, we have a RIGHT to file a redress to congress about anything.
I'm way more concerned about potential corporate/organizational influence than I am about Kenya's potential influence. Kenya's 2008 GDP was $60 billion. That's way under what the government has tossed out in bailout money the last 6 months, which through April 30th were about 12 TRILLION in commitments.
Kenya is the least of my worries.
Obama's in office. He's not going anywhere. We'd be better served to pay attention to what they're doing now, than whether or not he may have been granted Kenyan citizenship way before he even knew what that meant. Which would still have no effect on his Constitutional eligibility to serve.

This one is no different. People just like to talk. They think that as US citizens we have a right to challenge the presidents eligibility. Several United States District Courts have ruled that private citizens DO NOT having standing to challenge a candidate what makes them think they have anymore right to challenge him after he has won?
I can understand people being pissy, Obama has done a crap job so far, but pissy AND uneducated is a combo I just can't stand.

I hope this thread attracts the attention it deserves.
My question is this:
You've proven that Obama is a citizen of Kenya only if Obama's father and mother were married at the time of his birth. Which I believe they were since she filed for divorce when Obama was a child, thus already born.
Now, for the question. If Obama had given up his Kenya citizenship, would the constitution allow for this?
In other words, your source states that dual citizenship is not allowed for fear of which country's allegiance would dominate.
Is Obama still a legal citizen of Kenya, or did he denounce (recall?) that citizenship?
