My apologies. It was somewhere else that I had read that such newspaper
announcements were, at the time, automatically generated by the registration
of a birth.
Other than that, I don't see that I have any responsibility to refute a
site in whose objectivity I have little faith, especially when it claims to
have physically handled the original certificate -- which even Obama only
claims is a scan. Anyway, I didn't know about their whitewash until you posted
the link, and it doesn't change anything Chase demonstrated in his article.
All I sought to do was to demonstrate, per the article of a document
production expert, that the long-form certificate "released" by the White House
claiming to be a simple scan of a real document could actually be shown to
be a composed piece of assemblies by people expert in current imaging
As to motivation, I don't claim to know it. It just seems peculiar to me
that there is question about virtually every aspect of documentation relating
to Barack Obama's significant life history -- a great deal of which is
simply kept from public view.
I wouldn't pass off expert document examination so casually. I once had an
expert examiner expose the forgery and fraud that an employee was using to
embezzle my company, and I myself was one of those who could easily
recognize the documents produced by Dan Rather as forgeries based on typographic
expertise. So, I think it is interesting to consider some of the more
unusual uses for graphic know-how.

The words ``newspaper'' and ``announcement'' don't appear on the link you
gave. Nor have you troubled to make an effort to refute the link here:
