Are Obama's Muslim Roots Showing?

ABC News askes this question based on an overheard conversation at the White House and other speculation.

Interestingly, while they try to portray the idea that Obama is or was a practicing muslim at some point during his childhood as "insane", their article seems to plant more suspicians than remove them.

Since the election, however, with the threat of the rumors at least somewhat abated, the White House has been increasingly forthcoming about the president's roots. Especially when reaching out to the
Muslim world.

In his April 6 address to the Turkish Parliament, President Obama referenced how many "Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them."
