The Fake Birth Certificate: Or Where Would a Wise Man Hide a Pebble?

"Kenya (listed as Obama's father's nation of birth) wasn't called Kenya in 1961. It was the British East Africa Protectorate. It was not known as "Kenya" until 1963.

"In 1961, the hospital [where] Obama was born in was NOT named the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital , as shown on the above certificate. In 1961, the hospital Obama was born in was named the Kauaikeolani Children's Hospital. It did not change its name to the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until it merged with the Kapiolani hospital system in 1978."

The above from Aangirfan, with thanks

But... The fake certificate explained?

Our analysis of the latest controversy: The original birth certificate was probably in a ‘negative’ form, and someone at the White House took it upon themselves to doctor it up so the form can be readable.

Which doesn't explain why, in 1961, the British East Africa Protectorate is referred to as Kenya, which did not exist as an independent nation until 1964.

Except that

According to The Statesmans Year Book 1950


Government. The Kenya Colony and Protectorate extend, on the Indian Ocean, from the Umba River to Dick's Head, and inland as far as Lake Victoria and Uganda. The protectorate consists of the mainland dominions of the Sultan of Zanzibar, viz., a coastal strip of territory 10 miles wide, to the northern branch of the Tana River; also Kau, Kipini and the Island of Lamu, and all adjacent islands between rivers Umba and Tana, these territories having been leased to Great Britain in 1895 for an annual rent of 10,000, since raised to 16,000. The colony and protectorate, known as the East Africa Protectorate, were, on 1 April, 1905, transferred from the authority of the Foreign Office to that of the Colonial Office, and in November, 1906, the protectorate was placed under the control of a Governor and Commander-in-Chief and (except the Sultan of Zanzibar's dominions) was annexed to the Crown as from 23 July, 1920, under the name of * The Colony of Kenya,' thus becoming a Crown Colony. The territories on the coast rented from the Sultan of Zanzibar became the Kenya Protectorate. In 1908 foreign consular jurisdiction in the Zanzibar strip of coast was transferred to the British Crown.

So the East African Protectorate, excluding Zanzibar, was presumably referred to as Kenya before independence.

So here's another explanation: it was due to optimising the layers in a PDF file, an operation which at the same time "optimized" the name of the British East Africa Protectorate and the name of the hospital where the birth occurred?

And a highly technical analysis here.

And that is just scratching the surface!

Where Would a Wise Man Hide a Pebble?

On the beach!

Likewise, may not the certificate, that is to say the hard copy if it exists, though a first rate fake, the kind of thing the experts at the CIA can produce, have been put out in an electronic form designed to show many signs of gross fakery -- all of which can eventually be explained away, thus creating a complex story that the public will never be able to follow.

But the man of "change Americans could believe in," the Nobel Peace Prize winner, is unquestionably a fraud from snout to tail. This is surely the best evidence we have: It would be entirely out of character, were his birth certificate to be genuine.
