Thread Name: BS: McCain not born in US, legally??!?
Subject: RE: BS: McCain not born in US, legally??!?
Not that I give a rat's ass about Mccain, but I find that this thread did prompt a question ... the citizenship of the children of U.S. military born overseas. Tempest in a teapot or not it is a question that I wouldn't mind knowing the answer to.

Anyway I found this in wikipedia concerning McCain, it pretty well establishes the answer to the question ...

"John McCain, who ran in 2000 and is running in 2008, was born at the US military base Coco Solo in the Panama Canal Zone to U.S. parents. The Panama Canal Zone was under United States sovereignty between 1903 and 1979 but was unincorporated."
