what if Sen. Obama's first name IS NOT "Barack" in the original ?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Sen. Obama's birth certificate should be posted in Wikipedia, in public domain view for all who vote.

perhaps more like :
Al-Buraaq, Al-Burak, Burak........

Next to be modified/americanized into "Barack" .

Because "Hussein" in the middle name is enough of a trouble already.

No one yet knows what's written in the original birth certificate on file at Hawaii State Department of Health, Vital Records Section, Honolulu, Hawaii . Why wouldn't the Senator be forthcoming with all this information ?
Why would he wait with detailed info about his family on his father's
side, until his Security Clearance investigation ?

Why would he, a young man, declare from the outset that he would only run ONCE, take all or nothing ?

in Arabic : البُراق al-buraaq, meaning lightning
