The Cold Case Posse released the following document on March 1, 2012 as a preliminary release of their findings. In it, its experts outline how they reached a conclusion of “forgery”. Note that they never really identified a ‘forger’ other than by claiming that regular scanning processes would not create specific artifacts.
Zullo appears to have understood this when he issued a challenge to show how a simple workflow would indeed create artifacts similar to the ones found in the WH Long Form Birth Certificate.
August 28 A sad day as I have decided to no longer allow Hermitian to submit comments on this blog as he has now, several times accused me of behavior for which he has no evidence (hinting that I may be the forger, work for Obama, that I withhold data or manipulate data and other non sequiturs). I feel saddened because, despite his short comings, he did serve a useful purpose. I wish him well and will continue to address issues he raises, to help him understand better why the Xerox workflow stands unassailed. Thank you Hermitian for your efforts to debunk the work flow, helping further strengthen it.
Seizethecarp: Obots claim that the AP/Applewhite scan has much higher resolution than the green WH pdf, despite having a less distict light blue “security paper” pattern instead of a clearer green pattern and lower resolution in the WH pdf.
Not ‘much higher’, in some ways the document resolution itself is not sufficient to determine the quality as jpeg’s are also ‘compressed’ and this ‘quality factor’ can reduce the value of the resolution. The AP image is 200DPI (dots per inch) versus 150/300DPI (background/foreground) for the White House LFBC PDF. The AP image looks ‘cleaner’ as the JPEG smooths the text, giving it a cleaner appearance.
Zebest and Irey have tried to argue that the halos around the text are caused by a unsharp filter. However, there is a real problem with this: The halo is in the background, while the text is in the foreground, the unsharp filter works on the text layer only, unless the layers are somehow merged down but then the layers disappear.
Remember how Mara Zebest used to show how she ‘created’ a halo around the letters, but on closer scrutiny, the halo shows differences from the halo observed.
