Video: Obama “Birth Certificate” is a Forgery

In astounding short order within hours of the White House posting Obama’s proported birth certificate, various technology experts and others deeming it a forgery, and not a very good one. The “birth certificate” was actually composed on a Mac running MAC OS X 10.6.7. The layers can clearly be delineated using Illustrator. A scanned image would not have layers. This video link explains it very well.

On one site the day the “birth certificate” posted over 150 pages of comments were posted on the controversial document within 16 hours. Theses are some of the comments:

  • This is very disconcerting…. This thing is made up of bits and pieces. bryede
  • one scanned document should be ONE layer. PERIOD.  girlonlaptop
  • PDF pro here — when you scan a file, it comes in as a single layer. If you use OCR, it comes in as a text layer over the file. Signatures do not come in as individual layers. Something about this file is WRONG. You should not be able to separate the background from the foreground text and signatures. (This makes for a source that’s easy to counterfeit.)

             I don’t buy it. As a full-time computer junkie (my 24/7 job), there’s  something fishy here. supershwa27

  • holy sh*t they’re screwed lol, they didn’t flatten the image  HilarityBribo
  • I can assure you that there is absolutely no explanation whatsoever for there being more than one set of black ink layers other than the fact that this COLB is FORGED. NONE, whatsoever. If a birth certificate is copied onto official paper, that is fine. Nothing wrong with that. However, TWO OR MORE LAYERS OF BLACK INK IS PROOF OF FORGERY. Sometimes you just can’t fool Adobe Software products and this is a case and point.  groov539
  • hahaha…such an obvious fake. The most obvious fault is the background green security pattern. In the upper left the pattern should curve with the horizontal lines…IT DOESN’T.

Grade: F+….Take Photoshop 101 again.  DouglasUrantia

  • . . . a bunch of amateurs. I have spent the last 23 years of my life analyzing PDF’s for the CIA, FBI, Pentagon and 17 military and government agencies throughout the world. I am a certified Adobe PDF Crime Scene Investigator certified in PDF Analysis from versions 2. thru 9 and I know what I speak of. This PDF is a certified forgery. CRC and SSL keys do not match the original specifications. Further analysis indicates layering are suspicious, specifically the blacklines i.e. (blackbox)  koolkit   
  • The forger forgot to include the Hawaii State Seal “layer”, LOL!!!   Cash2112
  • @enkratic First, I’m a CDIA+ (Certified Document Imaging Architect) and have been in the document imaging industry for over 15 years, so please don’t insult my intelligence. Now, go to and download the document. Right click and check the PDF properties. IT WAS CREATED USING A MAC! (running MAC OS X 10.6.7)  MichPlacedGator
  • This CLB has been presented to the country as a scanned document, not something constructed. It should simply be an image saved in a pdf format…no layers.

   The OCR explanations are damage control.  kernond

   If it was scanned using OCR then the layers would have searchable text.  They do not. The different objects are images and not text.   jeff

  • I have no doubt that this is a forgery. None, whatsoever. The “disjointed logic” as to how these COLB items are grouped is certainly evidence of tampering. groov539
