In Is Barack Obamas Birth Certificate A Fraud? John Woodman, a computer professional and registered Republican, closely examines the evidence to find out which -- if any -- of these claims hold water. From layers to kerning to the out-of-sequence birth certificate number and beyond, he honestly investigates more than 30 different theories concerning the certificate. He contests ideas, explains why we see the things we see -- and reveals new information about the certificate not previously revealed anywhere else.
Complete with more than 70 illustrations, this book is a must-read for all who wish to truly understand the birther controversies.
