Submission + - Digital Manipulation of Birth Certificate Shown (youtube.com)

samcan writes: "I really thought with President Obama's release of his long-form birth certificate, this "birther" nonsense was finally over. However, orangegold1 has put together a video showing how the PDF provided by the White House (http://whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf), when imported into Illustrator, is actually composed of layers, which reveal digital tampering. While I don't have Illustrator, I was also able to pull apart the PDF using Inkscape. Is there some right-wing conspiracy I'm missing?"
