For weeks, internet blogs have been abuzz with questions regarding the validity of Obama's U.S. citizenship. Only recently have these questions been given serious consideration
 
Philip Berg, lifelong Democrat and Philadelphia lawyer, filed a lawsuit August 8, 2008, challenging Obama's claim of U.S. citizenship. The lawsuit could be resolved if Obama simply produces his birth certificate, which he has yet to do.
 
Questions have arisen about the birth certificate Obama initially placed on his web site. Well known Fact Check.org, attested to its authenticity but, as this video produced by Philip Berg shows, serious questions remain. Berg has pointed out that FactCheck.org is associated with the Annenberg Foundation, upon whose board Obama once sat.

RightBias.com considers William Berg's video compelling enough to be seriously considered. Though we have not done an in-depth investigation, the fact that Obama has yet to produce his birth certificate raises valid questions.

More questions are raised due to Google's seemingly deliberate attempt to quash this issue. Check out how Google  is covering for Obama. Of all the tons of Obama Birth Certificate questions on the web, they seem to have set up their first found links of "Obama's Birth Certificate" to go to phoney debunking sites and articles.
 
This video is app. 9 minutes long. Every American should have access to the information it contains in order to decide for themselves the veracity of Berg's allegations.
