Please define "Birther Expert.
Would that include, Law Enforcement officers, and Forensic document examiners that used to work for the Law firm that Obama employed?
Yep, I'm SMEllen1!
If you are referring to Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse, yes. The answer is YES. They are not impartial, and they are MAINLY using the WND "experts." (Including Paul Irey, who insists that Obama did not go to Columbia College, despite Columbia University saying repeatedly that Obama did go and that he graduated. I wonder who fair and impartial Irey is?) And including Doug Vogt, who claims to have found "the original Altar of Abraham." but naturally has never shown it.(I wonder how rational he is?)
The one exception you mention is Reed Hayes, who is a document expert with credentials. However, Zullo and the Cold Case Posse have not told you that he is a HANDWRITING EXPERT, not an expert on digital documents. And there is no evidence that he is fair and impartial either. And, worse, Reed Hayes had a 40-page report on the matter, but the Cold Case Posse did not publish it. I wonder why not? Could it be that it did not say what they claim that Reed Hayes, the HANDWRITING EXPERT, said?
And, worse for you by far, birther sites simply have not shown you all these experts (I wonder why not? Don't they think that birther zealots are capable of dealing with experts who disagree with the claim that the birth certificate is forged?):
Dr. Neil Krawetz, an imaging software analysis author and experienced examiner of questioned images, said:“The PDF released by the White House shows no sign of digital manipulation or alterations. I see nothing that appears to be suspicious.”
Nathan Goulding with The National Review:“We have received several e-mails today calling into question the validity of the PDF that the White House released, namely that there are embedded layers in the document. There are now several other people on the case. We looked into it and dismissed it.… I’ve confirmed that scanning an image, converting it to a PDF, optimizing that PDF, and then opening it up in Illustrator, does in fact create layers similar to what is seen in the birth certificate PDF. You can try it yourself at home.”
John Woodman, independent computer professional, who is a member of the Tea Party (who says that he hates Obama’s policies but found no evidence of forgery) said repeatedly in his book and in various articles on his Web site that the claims that Obama’s birth certificate was forged were unfounded.
Ivan Zatkovich, who has testified in court as a technology expert, and consultant to WorldNetDaily:“All of the modifications to the PDF document that can be identified are consistent with someone enhancing the legibility of the document.” And, by the way, when WND received Zatkovich’s article that said that he found nothing wrong with Obama’s birth certificate, WordNDaily simply did not publish it.
Jean-Claude Tremblay, a leading software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, who has years of experience working with and teaching Adobe Illustrator, said the layers cited by doubters are evidence of the use of common, off-the-shelf scanning software — not evidence of a forgery.“I have seen a lot of illustrator documents that come from photos and contain those kind of clippings—and it looks exactly like this,” he said.
Birthers’ claim that Obama’s birth certificate is false is well understood to be caused by their own motives—they hate Obama and would like to harm him.
