Let me start by saying that I am not a “birther”. I believe (until conclusive proof to the contrary is presented) that Barack Hussein Obama was born born in Hawaii. That being said, the story linked above makes a very strong case that the long-form birth certificate presented by the White House is a digital fabrication. I have used Photoshop and similar image editing software to produce architectural renderings and modify scanned images and am quite familiar with some of the effects detailed in the story so i tend to believe the anomalies the story presents.
This leads me to ask a series of questions.
- Why would the White House provide a document that is so demonstrably a digital fabrication?
- Are they really this incompetent and stupid or are they playing a deeper game?
- If this is a fabrication, does that mean a long-form birth certificate does not exist or does it mean that the actual BC contains information that is highly embarrassing to BHO or damaging to his self-presented narrative.
I’m still not a “birther”, but the recent discovery that BHO’s literary agent presented him as “born in Kenya” without correction until 2007 and the fact that he has sealed all of his academic records from grade school all the way through Harvard Law has me asking; Why all the secrecy and what is so bad that it must be buried so deeply? I have a couple of theories, none of which lead to anything innocent or good.
