    Blogger admits Hawaii birth certificate forgery, subverting Obama claims

    Jay McKinnon, a self-described Department of Homeland Security-trained document specialist, has implicated himself in the production of fake Hawaii birth certificate images similar to the one endorsed as genuine by the Barack Obama campaign, and appearing on the same Daily Kos blog entry where the supposedly authentic document appears.

    The evidence of forgery and manipulation of images of official documents, triggered by Israel Insider's revelation of the collection of Hawaii birth certificate images on the Photobucket site and the diligent detective work of independent investigative journalists (led by JimJ and Texas Darling) and imaging professionals such as Polarik in the three weeks since the publication of the images, implicate The Daily Kos, a "progressive" blog site, and the Obama campaign's "Fight the Smears" website, in misleading the public with official-looking but manipulated document images of doubtful provenance. Moreover, the blog and the campaign have been negligent in allowing the promotion of obviously forged and fake official documents together with the purported image of Obama's birth certificate.

    ORIGINS OF THE SUSPECT IMAGE ON DAILY KOS

    The blog entry, posted by the site founder Kos (Markos Moulitsas), is presented as a response to a request by Jim Geraghty of the National Review Online, who had, three days before, called for the Obama campaign to release the candidate's birth certificate:

    "Now come the rumor's about Barack Obama's birthplace, that he was really born in his father's native Kenya And she returned to Hawaii with the baby and applied for a late filing birth certfifcate ."

    Having done some Obama-rumor debunking that got praise from Daily Kos (a sign of the apocalypse, no doubt), perhaps the Obama campaign could return the favor and help debunk a bunch of others with a simple step: Could they release a copy of his birth certificate?
    Reporters have asked for it and been denied, and the state of Hawaii does not make such records public [...]

    So Kos aka Moulitsas goes out and gets one. One impressed commenter on the site asks Kos where he got it. He answers:
    "I asked the campaign. This 'journamalism [sic] thing actually works sometimes."

    But why would a presidential campaign that has its own "Fight the Smears" website rely on a radical left-wing blog like Daily Kos to post its official documents, especially one as sensitive and controversial as a birth certificate? A few days later the Obama site would post a very low resolution, barely legible image -- it still is there on the site, with no reference to the one first posted at the Daily Kos.

    Yet the service of Daily Kos to the Obama campaign raises some questions: Who in the campaign would be authorized to release a personal document of Barack Obama's birth certificate? Was it a paper document that they sent to Kos to scan, or did the Obama campaign scan the original and send it to Kos? If so, why not just post it on the Fight the Smears site? Or is there another possible source for the document? There is no documentation of the provenance of this image, from whom and why it was transmitted to Daily Kos, and in which format. None, that is, except for the say-so of Markos Moulitsas, who said he simply asked the Obama campaign for it.

    I agree with the main assertion. B. Hussein Obama could end this controversy very easily. All that he has to do is realease a copy of his birth certificate. It's easy to get one. I went to the county records office of my birthplace and received three official copies when I was applying for a passport. It only cost me a few dollars too. It's an easy thing to do unless, one that actually shows him to be a natural born US Citizen doesn't actually exist.

    It's hard to believe that Clinton didn't turn this up but maybe she did and was saving it for the convention, but I kind of doubt that but they are sure hiding something !

    I don't see what help it can be now. It will just be seen as sour grapes.

    I want to read the whole article before I comment.

    Are you aware of the Constitutional requirement of the place of birth for POTUS ?

    Yes, of course. But Barack is so protected by being African American that I doubt even his birth outside the US would be a big obstacle for long. We'd all just be called racists for wanting to enforce the Constitution.

    Not to be a spoilsport, but I would take this with a grain of salt. Perhaps a whole shaker of salt.
