The White House today released the long-form version of the President's birth certificate, showing that Barack Hussein Obama II was born at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961, at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, within the city limits of Honolulu.

Speaking to the press at the White House, the President said he hopes this will settle the debate over his nationality, adding that the U.S. does not have time for "this kind of silliness." We speak with Rick Klein senior Washington editor for ABC World News, and host of the ABC News political webcast “Top Line.”
