Not just his birth certificate, but also his selective service registration card, which is also surrounded by numerous questions and inaccuracies.
Via CBS News:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, announced Thursday that his six-month investigation had found that “probable cause exists indicating that forgery and fraud may have been committed” in the release of President Obama’s long-form birth certificate.
The publicity-hungry Arpaio, a strong opponent of illegal immigration who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” said the evidence gathered by his investigators suggests Mr. Obama’s birth certificate and selective service registration card are fakes.
“Based on all of the evidence, I cannot in good faith report to you these documents are authentic,” Arpaio said at a press conference in Phoenix, adding that his “investigators believe that the long form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in the paper format as presented by the White House.”
The 79-year-old Arpaio, who has been accused by the Justice Department of racial profiling and who is being probed by a federal grand jury over potential abuse of power, said he told his investigators to examine the president’s documents with “no preconceived notions,” adding that he “felt that this investigation could clear President Obama’s name and put people’s minds at ease.”
In case you’re wondering why a member of Obama’s Media Complex would even bother to print this story, it’s because it is done not to shine light on the still lingering questions about the paper-trail of Obama’s past (the lack of a paper-trail, actually), but rather to discredit and mock Arpaio. Which is why the included the other-wise irrelevant qualifier I emphasized above.
One day the truth about Obama and his past will surface. Sadly, he’ll already be out of office by the time it does.
