AIM's Kincaid Pushes Bogus Birther Claims
Topic: Accuracy in Media

Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid is so into conspiracy mode on Obama that he just copies and pastes other people's Obama conspiracies into his article.

In a July 24 AIM column promoting yet again a conspiratorial film claiming that Frank Marshall Davis is Obama's real father, Kincaid writes:

Without setting out to ascertain true paternity, Arpaio investigator Mike Zullo’s analysis takes the problem to a deeper level—the mentor may have been the actual father. He analyzed the numbers or codes on certain parts of Obama’s so-called “long-form birth certificate,” as released by the White House.

While most media, including conservative talk radio, have shied away from the blockbuster revelations, Zullo appeared on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio to talk about the “faded set of puzzling, handwritten codes,” saying that “…they looked like pencil markings to us. Nobody really knew what they were.” Zullo told Klein they were able track down the “local registrar” who signed the document, a now 95-year-old woman named Verna Lee, who explained what the codes meant.

As noted by WorldNetDaily, Lee confirmed to investigators that the “9” meant the information is not stated, meaning there should not have been any information in the box in which the number is written and that it was left “unknown.” On the “official” document released by the White House, however, the “9” was next to “Race of Father,” under which “African,” a reference to Barack Hussein Obama, the “Kenyan goat herder” claimed by Obama as his father when he ran for office, was entered.

In fact, Zullo is using a 1968 coding system to evaluate a 1961 birth certificate. The pre-1968 coding system defined the number 9 as "other nonwhite," not "unknown." Further, Klein inexplicably failed to challenge Zullo on his coding error, even though the issue had been raised elsewhere before their interview.

Despite the fact that Zullo's claim is total bunk, Kincaid was in full conspiracy mode, so he just made up stuff:

What all of this means is that the word “African” was inserted by persons unknown who apparently wanted the identity of the true father concealed.

The reason for the fraud is what takes the scandal to another more dangerous level. The evidence suggests that Obama’s birth document was altered not just to conceal a family scandal but to conceal Obama’s relationship with a Communist who was considered by the FBI to be a top Soviet operative in the state of Hawaii and eligible for arrest in the case of a national emergency.

But the alteration of the document did not go far enough. The “9” was left on by the forgers because they did not understand what it meant or whether it was relevant. They had to have figured that the “9” would have been ignored as mere scribbling on a birth certificate, having nothing to do with the “African” designation for the father.

This omission on their part has now come back to haunt them and constitutes proof, as noted by Arpaio and his investigators, that the document has been altered. But by whom? The culprits would have to include Obama and/or his top associates.

Uh, yeah.
