Are the claims that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya valid?

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has reignited the so-calledbirther movement, questioning President Obama’s constitutional right to be president. Is it time to put these claims to bed, given that the president has released a copy of his birth certificate and two Hawaiian newspapers recorded his birth announcement? Or has the president perpetrated a fraud on voters that needs to come to light?

Some of the comments posted at ClickBack may be featured on Friday’s OpEd page.
