Barack Obama: Citizen of Kenya

You heard it right--Obama is a Kenyan citizen:
Rocky Mountain News reported this morning on things you might not know about Obama, including this:
He Holds both American and Kenyan (since 1963) citizenship.
Reader Bob R. wonders:
I wonder how the clingy, bible thumpin', shotgun pumpin', outhouse dumpin', crowd in flyover country would respond to this gem. And, wouldn't it be "special" to hear the "Wizard of Uhhs" stumble through an explanation of this fact, and why it hasn't been aired out earlier?

And, I'm not sure, but I believe that Kenya doesn't allow dual citizenships. Mightn't this be among the reasons that Glibama, the most transparent candidate with the most transparent campaign, won't release his actual birth certificate?
This was previously reported back in 2007 but didn't get any attention from the mainstream media:
U. S. Senator Barack Obama is a citizen of Kenya and became a citizen of Kenya under the Independence Constitution of Kenya in 1963. Obama has never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. He is also a U. S. Citizen.

“Under the Independence Constitution of Kenya, Obama became a Kenyan citizen on December 12, 1963. He has never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. On his senate web site, Obama tap dances around his own dual nationality when discussing his father. Obama obviously knows, because his father told him, that he also held/holds Kenyan nationality.

“Once again, we find Barry O concealing fascinating information about his identity. There is nothing unusual about dual nationality. Indeed, ancient Roman Law doctrines of jus sanguini and jus soli come into play, because both Kenya and the U. S. recognize dual nationality. Once again, the issue is not ‘legality.’ The issue is the cover-up; Obama’s concealment of his own identity. From us, and most of all from himself.
Of course, the fact that he is a Kenyan citizen is not mentioned on his campaign website.

Oh, and Obama is embarrassed about being an American citizen.
Well, well...
