‘Birther’ netizens are already calling Obama’s birth certificate fake.
Karl Denninger of market-ticker.org listed the following alleged inconsistencies:
1. Definition of document background is inconsistent. It’s sharper around the edges and blurred around the center.
2. “Date Accepted by Reg. General” field has inconsistent color depth on the “AUG,” “-,” and “6.”
3. “Department of Health” field’s number “1” is inconsistent with the other numbers before it.
4. No color fringes around the letters, no matter far it’s magnified. The allegation is that the letters weren't originally printed on the colored paper, but rather assembled from elsewhere.
A netizen named 3TruthSeeker33 had the following allegations:
The PDF document, when loaded to Adobe Illustrator, shows “layers.” When the layers are stripped back, most of the letters on the document are removed. The allegation is that the letters have been assembled from somewhere else.
The first picture below shows 3TruthSeeker33’s Adobe Illustrator displaying the layers. The second one shows what happens when he takes them off.
Obama, in addition to releasing his two birth documents, said the following in his defense: “we've had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.”
The President also anticipated this reaction from the ‘birthers.’ He said: “I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest.”
