White House Long Form Photos

Because of Hermitian’s fanciful ideas about how AP might have forged the document provided. I have documented a variety of photographs from a variety of sources which somewhat contradict his ideas. Of course, why the AP would create a copy that shows the outline of the COLB shining through is beyond me… I am sure Hermitian has a great explanation for it…

There are many more, time to index and correlate them… Oh the fun…. But first the report… Hermitian has fully lived up to expectations.

  1. Nicely done. It looks like the FoxNews one is actually a picture of the press packet, not the actual certificate (it is the same as the person holding up the one with the COLB showing through in the Politico picture). I suspect a few more are a photo of the press packet. Being a packet, I would not be surprised if the COLB is printed on the backside of the page.

    This provides the explanation on who some pictures do not have all of the features. They are, quite simply, quick reference copies not one of the birth certificates sent from Hawaii. Some of the others, however, are pictures of the certificate.

  2. Yes, but of course they have to ‘match’ in some way or form… Of course, they have gone through a workflow which will not make it simple to track what happened.

    There are now two different people who photographed the B&W document. Not sure where this leads but interesting
