The birthers seem to be getting desperate. They can't find any proof to support their fanciful claim Obama wasn't born here--so they have to make it up. Recently, another supposed Kenyan birth certificate has been exposed as fake.
The alleged Kenyan birth certificate offered by eBay seller Lucas Smith and displayed last weekend on YouTube.com is not a valid document, a WND investigation has revealed.
Administrators at Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombasa, the hospital named as President Obama's supposed birth hospital in the document, refused to authenticate the record when contacted by WND sources in Kenya.
Three days ago, Smith posted a video on YouTube claiming to show the birth certificate. However, several red flags popped up almost immediately. For one, the document was generated at a time Kenya was still a dominion, but refers to the "Republic of Kenya." The dates are formatted in American rather than European style, and the attending doctor never worked at Mombasa.
Smith's story has had a rank odor about it from the very beginning. Back in June, he claimed to have found this "birth certificate" and tried to sell it on eBay, only to have it deleted six times by eBay. In fact, eBay officials suspected that Smith was trying to phish for personal information.
And yet, WND appeared to be so desperate for proof Obama wasn't born here that it actually tried to get him in touch with an agent and lawyer to help verify the "birth certificate." However, in July, Smith suddenly broke off all contact with the team. After that, nothing--until the YouTube video three days ago.
Odds are that Joseph Farah and friends are going to be tied up for awhile getting the egg off their faces. News flash, guys--you sleep with dogs, you end up getting fleas.
