    Great job Anderson. We need to put this military officer in JAIL. What is doing is illegal and in violation of the UCMJ.

    Forget the stupid birth certificate, focus on the damage Obama is doing to this country.

    This doctor is a loon. So what if President Obama was born in Kenya. His mother was a U.S. citizen and he could have been born on Mars and still be a legal U.S. citizen. By the way, John McCain was born in Panama, so I guess he is not a citizen either in the eyes of this doctor who is just too afraid to serve his country.

    There is simply no amount of facts that is going to satisfy these 'birthers'. What they are stating is borderline Treason. And if the military doctor is overhead encouraging his fellow soldiers to do the same, that would essentially be treason.

    Thank you Anderson Cooper for stepping up and asking this guy (and his attorney) some tough questions. Kind of hypocritical of the Dr. not to demand/ask any of his former Commander in Chiefs to supply their birth certificates but when it comes to Barack, its of utmost importance.

    Funny how some are still desperately insisting Barack isn't a U.S. born citizen when the facts are overwhelmingly otherwise.

    How can you have two countries both claiming that he was born in theirs? I saw the e-mail going around showing he was born in Kenya, looked pretty real to me. I also believe even if he was born in Kenya – a fake one will appear showing birth in the US because HE IS TOO BIG TO FAIL. That will just never happen in the USA. Everything in everyones power will do what they will to cover anything illegal. That is what the US does best.

    Like the lawyer said, this could be over tonight. What is O'bama afraid of? It's so easy a caveman could do it.

    Talking about making up news. Obama produced the official certificates used in the State of Hawaii for birth records. There isn't anything else to show!

    I have a lady down the street that also believes that President Obama is not a citizen of the United States.
    I would not like for my birth certificate to be plastered around in public domain.
    The Hawaiian records office has stated that President Obama is a citizen of the Hawaiian United States. My hope is that they will lay this to rest, although some will not still believe it to be true.
