WND Letter to Obama Contains Falsehood
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily just can't stop lying about President Obama's birth certificate.

WND is now offering its readers the chance to send "personalized letters to Obama demanding the birth certificate and other pertinent documents" that WND will then send to the White House -- for the low, low price of just $6.95 (you didn't think that WND wouldn't try to shake down its readers again, did you?). But even the text of that letter contains a lie:

The problem with the short-form certification is that it could easily be obtained for a birth that took place out of the state or out of the country. All it would take is the word of one parent.

In fact, as the Joseph Farah-founded Western Journalism Center pointed out, there is no evidence that Hawaii issues birth certificates "for a birth that took place out of the state or out of the country" that claim the person was born in Hawaii.

If  WND can't prove that this happens -- and it hasn't so far -- this issue is irrelevant, and the letter is irrelevant ... and this is just another lie from WorldNetDaily.
