Submission + - Obama's birth certificate's layers (

surveyork writes: Bryan Preston explains why Obama's long-form birth certificate is divided in layers: The software that scanned the document did it automatically . A commenter also points to for more info (the PDF linked from Wikipedia has the nitty-gritty details).

As Obama said, it doesn't matter what documents he produces, some people will never be satisfied . Donald Trump said that he hopes the cert is authentic, but he'll look at it carefully. Anyways, Trump is already questioning Obama's Ivy League education . I guess the birthers will have a field day (months?) finding estrange-looking pixels, shadows, smears, blotches, edits, coded messages, and whatnot
