Adobe expert questions Obama birth certificate, WhiteHouse.gov image OCR, Merged from several originals?
“Why has Obama, after using private and taxpayer funded attorneys for
years to keep his birth certificate and college records hidden, placed
a computer generated birth certificate and not a certified original
copy on WhiteHouse.gov?”…Citizen Wells
“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any partiucular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Obama has still not released a certified copy of an original birth certificate. All we have seen lately is a computer generated image placed on WhiteHouse.gov.
From Citizen Wells April 28, 2011.
“The information presented below does not address whether or not the document placed on WhiteHouse.gov yesterday came from the State of Hawaii or not. I am not a document analysis specialist and the issue is not critical to evaluate the credibility of the document, Obama and the persons responsible for placing the document on WhiteHouse.gov. Those in the media and elsewhere accepting this document as a certified copy of a birth certificate to authenticate Obama’s birth in Hawaii have not done their due diligence and once again reveal the sad state of “news” in this country. The information below has a basis in fact and documentation and will no doubt befuddle many.”
“Loretta J. Fuddy, Director of Health, states that she is making an exception to departmental policy to accomodate Obama. Is that due to the third party, Ms. Corley acting as a go between? Ms. Fuddy then confirms that the copies will be computer generated.”
From Citizen Wells April 30, 2011.
“When you view the document placed on WhiteHouse.gov remember it was
computer generated. It is not an image file of a complete original
birth certificate. It is a composite of data entered into a
database(s) in the Hawaii computer systems. The data is as good as the
source and the procedures and personnel who controlled the entry and
maintained the integrity. From a legal standpoint it proves, if
authenticated as having come from the state of Hawaii, that Obama is a
US Citizen. It does not prove that he is a natural born citizen.”
“Jana Winter of Fox news presented this article on April 29, 2011.
“Expert: No Doubt Obama’s Birth Certificate Is Legit”
“The White House has released President Obama’s long-form birth
certificate, saying the document is “proof positive” the president was
born in Hawaii.
It didn’t take long for some of President Obama’s doubters to claim
the long-awaited birth certificate posted online by the White House on
Wednesday had been altered or might be a fake.
But a leading software expert says there’s no doubt about its
authenticity, and he dismisses claims of fraud as flat-out wrong.”
Fox News misrepresented the comments made by the OCR expert regarding the image released on WhiteHouse.gov.

“Fox News expert denies he claimed birth certificate legit
Angry at network for refusing to retract its story on Obama document”
“The computer graphics expert Fox News relied upon to claim the birth certificate the White House released April 27 was legitimate insists that the network must retract the story, claiming it deliberately misquoted him and continues to ignore his repeated requests.
Jean Claude Tremblay told WND that that none of his comments would permit the conclusion that the Obama birth certificate is an authentic document.
“I no longer trust Fox News,” he said, expressing anger verging on disdain for the way he feels the network treated him. “Despite my protests, Fox News will not allow me to correct their story.”

“Adobe engineer doubts Obama birth certificate
Concludes ‘something digital came between the paper and the glass'”
“Gary Poyssick, an early employee of software giant Adobe System Inc.,
continues to maintain there is something “fishy” about the Obama
long-form birth certificate released by the White House.
“What the White House released is not a simple scan,” Poyssick told
WND. “Something digital came between the paper and the glass.””
“His initial reaction was to declare the birth certificate an outright forgery.
“I could have done a much better replica myself, if the president had
asked,” Poyssick told The Political Sandbox blog when the birth
certificate first appeared and he opened the document in Adobe
Illustrator. “The guy that did this is a bimbo in that he forgot to
‘flatten’ his works to soften the background edges so the fake letters
blended, softly into the green paper.
Observing that the birth certificate document had multiple layers when
opened in Adobe Illustrator, Poyssick was amazed the White House had
released an electronic PDF file that had not been “flattened” so as to
remove all evidence that it had been modified.”
“”The reality is that clipping masks are commonly used not to scan a
document for preview or printing, but to merge or compose one or more
images,” he says in the final analysis. “It is – in my opinion and my
opinion only – a document that was, in fact, merged from several
