Is Obama still a British citizen?

British legal experts believe Obama is still a British citizen...

A recurring rumor that Obama is still a British citizen keeps popping up. In 2005, Russia held Obama on suspicion of being a British spy.

In August of 2005, Senator Barack Obama was traveling with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Richard Lugar at a base near Perm, Russia, where mobile launch missiles were being destroyed by the Nunn-Lugar program. The Lugar delegation was detained for three hours in Perm after inspecting nuke weapons facility. Lugar was briefly detained but Obama was held longer. The Russian thought he was a British Intel agent but released him hours later. Why would they believe he was a British spy rather than an American spy?

On Obama’s own website, called “Fight the Smears”, it’s admitted that he was a British citizen at birth since his father was a British citizen. It is stated:“As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama, Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children. Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

In addition, British legal experts agree that Obama may well be a British citizen. According to author John Charlton in a British legal analysis, he says "The Presumption is that Obama did not revoke his British Citizenship on Aug. 4, 1979....and, according to the British Home Office, U.K. Border Agency, to renounce British Citizenship, one must be at least 18 years of age and fill out a declaration, using form RN." Charlton goes on to say, "Therefore, upon reaching the age of 18, on Aug. 4, 1979, Obama could have revoked his citizenship. However, the British Government has never affirmed that he has. Therefore in law we must presume that he has not, if his birth story is true."

The issue of Obama's citizenship is constantly debated, and we’ll only know the truth when Obama’s records are finally opened. By Executive Order 13489, the President cut off all avenues of vetting him and his background by sealing his records.
