August 2, 2009: A document has surfaced which allegedly is the birth certificate of current United States president Barack Obama. This document looks like it was created by Kenyan officials and lists Obama's birth place as Mombasa in Kenya. It was shown by the Californian attorney Orly Taitz, who has filed a number of lawsuits demanding proof of Obama's eligibility for president. She claims that she was given this document by an anonymous source who doesn't want his name known because "he's afraid for his life."
