World Net Daily has reported something that I was certain was the truth. In the quagmire of reporting by the MSM and on the internet and the well crafted half truths straight out of “1984”, no official from the Hawaii Department of Health ever stated that they issued the COLB displayed by the Obama camp. From the WND article dated August 2, 2009, by Jerome R. Corsi.
“In response to a direct question from WND, the Hawaii Department of Health refused to authenticate either of the two versions of President Obama’s short-form Certificate of Live Birth, or COLB, posted online – neither the image produced by the Obama campaign nor the images released by FactCheck.org.
Janice Okubu, the public information officer for the Hawaii DOH, also had no explanation for why Dr. Chiyome Fukino’s initial last October and subsequent press release last week also avoided declaring the posted images to be of authentic documents.
In June 2008, Ben LaBolt, an Obama campaign spokesman, released the initial short-form Obama COLB to various newspapers including the Los Angeles Times declaring, “This is Sen. Obama’s birth certificate.”
This short-form Obama COLB was released as a .jpg Internet image, displaying no signs of having been folded or of carrying an official State of Hawaii embossed seal.”
