Not to mention that, if I’m not mistaken, it came from Daily Kos.
On that basis alone, we probably should have assumed it a forgery until proved otherwise.
Not only that.. but how did the Daily Kos get it?
From the Hawaiian State Dept of Health
What Information You Should Be Prepared to Provide
An applicant/requestor must provide the information needed to 1) establish his/her direct and tangible interest in the record and 2) locate the desired record. This will normally include:
Applicant's name, address, and telephone number(s);
Applicant's relationship to the person named on the certificate;
Reason why you are requesting the certificate;
Full name(s) as listed on the certificate;
The certificates file number (if known); Month, day, and year of the event; and
City or town and the island where the event occurred. For birth certificates, also provide the full name of the father and the full maiden name of the mother.
If you are applying for a certificate on behalf of someone else, you must provide an original letter signed by that person authorizing the release of their certificate to you.
So if I am reading that right... Obama himself would have had to sign off on Kos getting the cert, and if he did not allow them to get it.. they could not have ever gotten it.
