WASHINGTON (AP) -- The detailed birth certificate for Barack Obama, released today by the White House, says he was born Barack Hussein Obama II at 7:24 p.m. on August 4, 1961 at a Honolulu
hospital.

It's signed by the delivery doctor, as well as by Obama's mother and the local registrar.

There's no mention of religion.

It says Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama, was a 25-year-old
African who was born in Kenya, and that his mother, who was then
18, was Caucasian and born in Wichita, Kan.

President Barack Obama says he's released more details of his birth records to remove a distraction that threatens his efforts to resolve important issues.

President Barack Obama says he's bewildered by the two-and-a-half-year controversy over his birth records.
