WND Birth Certificate Conspiracy Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We know that WorldNetDaily's writers apparently don't read their own website, as evidenced by their insistence that the birth certificate released by Barack Obama's campaign is forged, despite WND's own reporting to the contrary. It seems that WND's readers don't actually read it either.

WND's Nov. 28 "Letter of the Week" is by one Jesse Smith, who begins by claiming, "It really is amazing how many people don't think Barack Obama could've forged his online Certification of Live Birth. Digital forgery is nothing new and has been around for years."

Smith joins those WND employees in failing to acknowledge WND's report on the subject in August:

A separate WND investigation into Obama's birth certificate utilizing forgery experts also found the document to be authentic. The investigation also revealed methods used by some of the bloggers to determine the document was fake involved forgeries, in that a few bloggers added text and images to the certificate scan that weren't originally there.

WND further reported that, as a result, a lawsuit filed against the Obama campaign by Philip J. Berg claiming that Obama is a non-citizen of the U.S. and thus ineligible to run for president "relies on discredited claims."

Smith (not to mention the rest of WND) might want to give that report a look before further buying into their little conspiracy theory.
