Another fake "Obama was born in Kenya" rumor

Birthers fail another one. They cite a 2004 "AP" story as evidence that Obama was born in Kenya. Turns out that the Associated Press did not, in fact, mention that Obama was from Kenya. Seems the "Kenyan-born" reference was added by an author who didn't bother to fact-check his sources.

His birth certificate has been released. Hawaiian state officials have verified that it's real. Hawaiian newspapers at the time of his birth had his birth notice. The courts have routinely tossed cases about this because there's no credible evidence he was born in Kenya. The "Kenyan" birth certificate which was released turned out to be a poorly made forgery. Several respected conservative magazines have investigated this and determined that Obama was born in Hawaii. Would you people who insist upon "knowing the truth about where Obama was born" knock it off? We already know the answer and there are far more important things to pay attention to.
