Obama Long Form Birth Certificate Already Questioned


A Column by the Editor
web posted April 28, 2011

COLUMN I have to say when I read the release of President Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate I breathed a huge sigh of relief. Finally we can focus on the real issues that are plaguing our nation like high gas prices, $14 trillion in debt, ObamaCare and a host of others. Just when I thought it was all over, here we go again. Some are claiming the pdf file released by the White House has "layers".  I downloaded a copy this morning and, sure enough, it does.

For those who are not familiar with the term layers, it is a tool used in graphic art programs such as PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, and others. This allows the artist or designer to take an image, alter it by adding or removing portions, to create a new image.

Now, to create the final image the layers would normally be "flattened" before saving creating a single layered finished product. I use this technique in creating some of the advertisements on Edgefield Daily.

However, if the final image is saved without flattening the layers together, reopening the image in an editing program will reveal the different layers used to create the image and can be removed or viewed individually.  

A YouTube video shows how the document released by the White House is layered and what each layer contains.

I was able to open the pdf file in Illustrator the same way and do the same things with the layers.

I have to admit, this is very odd for a scanned single page document.

Is the document a fake? That is above my pay grade and technical expertise.

What I can say for sure is, the issue will not be solved with the document provided by the White House.

So, here we go again.

And, just for the record, I do not care if Obama was born here or not. I just want his failed presidency to end before he bankrupts our country.
