Three days ago, on April 27, 2011, after more than two years, Obama finally released his supposed birth certificate. But the mystery is not gone but only deepens.
In the first place, contrary to what we first thought, what was released last Wednesday is not Obama’s long-form or original birth certificate, but another version of his Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) — a secondary document that presumably is generated from the primary long-form birth certificate.
Then there are the many anomalies that have already been found about this new COLB. (For examples, see here, here, and here.)
The latest doozy is this:
On March 18, 2010, Aloha Reporter published an article about the Hawaiian state government refusing to respond to citizen FOIA requests for Obama’s birth certificate. The article included an image of what some claim to be Obama’s real Certificate of Live Birth, which was filed by his maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, and which specifies that Obama had been born in Kenya.
Here’s the COLB:
Thanks to Steve Cooper of The Conservative Monster for posting this. Cooper writes, “I suspect that this was the original that was edited and posted on the White House website” and that this explains why Obama’s mother’s signature on the COLB that was released last Wednesday “looked like it was added onto the document. They had to cover the signature of Obama’s grandmother.”
H/t beloved fellow Tina.
