There has been ongoing speculation over the birth certificate of Barack Obama, and whether it contains some information the Presidential candidate is trying to suppress.

As a bit of backstory, Jim Geraghty of the National Review Online, called for the Obama campaign to release the candidate’s birth certificate.

Then the extreme left blog, Daily Kos, posted a birth certificate for Obama, which was apparently requested from and provided by the Obama campaign.

The birth certificate provided is clearly not the original. Well, unless they had laser printers in Hawaii back in 1961.

Anyhow, the israelinsider dug into the issue and found that there is some manipulation going on with documents here.

The perceived unreliability of the image has provoked petitions and widespread demands for Obama to submit for objective inspection the paper versions of the “birth certificate” he claimed in his book Dreams from My Father was in his possession, as well as the paper version of the Certificate of Live Birth for which the image on the Daily Kos and the Obama “Fight the Smears” website was supposedly generated.

Maybe we should get Dan Rather on the case to authenticate the birth certificate.
