Obama Not The Only One With Birth Certificate Issues
Watching NBC's coverage of the women's Olympic gymnastic competition, I was struck by how young several of the Chinese team members appeared. The commentators noted that questions had been raised about whether at least three of the Chinese gymnasts had actually reached the age of 16 as required by Olympic rules. It seems their national ID cards indicate they are 16, but other public records seem to suggest they are younger. The International Olympic Committee won't investigate the obvious. The Chinese team, legitimate or not, appears poised to walk away with the lion's share of gold medals.
