REPORT
 
BARACK OBAMA: LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATEPage 1 of 10
Opening Statement:
I, Mara Zebest, am preparing this report at the request o Maricopa County Sherif’s O ce in support o the Cold Case Posseinvestigation. The PDF birth certicate document released by the White House(shown in
Figure
 
1
) is a completely manuactured and abricatedcomputer generated image. The same source le was used toprint a copy handed to the AP (shown in
Figure 2
), in which theAP scanned in the version handed to them. A third photographversion (
Figure 3
) was touted by Savannah Guthrie who claimedto have held and elt the seal on the document, but the originalInternet posted images have been scrubbed. The White House wants us to believe the PDF document startedout in printed orm on security paper retrieved rom Hawaii—butthis is
not possible
. All three versions maniest itsel as a printeddocument
only 
when the
PRINT
button is pressed rom withinthe original manuactured document le. This would accountor the transormation o a document containing diferent colorbackgrounds, and the ability to print with or without saety paperpattern (by turning a layer on or of). There is no doubt in my mind that this computer generated imagenever started out as a paper source document and was neverscanned in as described by the White House—it was
digitally 
 
created and manufactured 
. The bulk o this report will explain the evidence to support this,which will include the ollowing points:
Inconsistencies within text characters: All anti-aliased text (ina color scan), or all bitmapped text (in a black & white scan)—not a mixture o both which is impossible in a legitimatedocument. Image noise should also be consistent throughout.
Chromatic aberration absent: A color scanned documentwould display chromatic aberration. This is physics and occursin all color scans but is absent in Obama’s PDF document.
Layers: A normal scan is a at le and does not contain multiplelayers. The Obama PDF contains 9 layers and grouped to aclipping mask layer.
Links: Indicate that components were pasted into the le,rotated, and resized.
Clipping Mask Path hides image inormation: Proo o manipulation.
Saety paper and white halo: Manuactured in nal steps.

OCR—which stands or

—will scan adocument or text and convert any images o text to live (editable)text.Ater OCR is applied to a PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro, the textresponds as i it is in a Word document. The OCR text can beselected, changed, copied and pasted. The

 Adobe Acrobat Pro
has PDF editing unctions, but
 Adobe Acrobat Reader 
does not.Additionally, i the PDF had been scanned using OCR sotware; onewould be able to search the document with keywords and i thetext exists in the document, then those keywords would be ound.

When viewing the ont properties dialog box in

Introduction to Basic Terms
Let’s briey examine three terms related to graphic programs:
Noise
,
 Anti-aliasing
, and
Bitmap
Noise v No Noise
Scanned images will have a consistent
noise
.
Any inconsistenciesin noise would be a strong telltale sign o tampering. When lookingat an image at a normal zoom level (100%) colors may appear asone color o any particular area o an image. Zooming in closer tothe area, consistent
noise
is easily apparent in the slight variationso color rom neighboring pixels that make up each color (shownin
Figure 8
). This is the natural noise level or this image. Note thatit is consistent throughout the image; variations can be seen orneighboring pixels o each color area in the original image.In contrast,
Figure 8
also shows an example o 
no noise
as a resulto digital manipulation. Two pixels were sampled to match colorswithin the image. Using a paint brush tool in Adobe Photoshop,a streak o each sampled color is drawn across the image area.Clearly the lack o noise in the digital brush strokes is
inconsistent 
 with natural noise o the image. Components added digitally to animage
do not contain
noise
. All neighboring pixels or the samplepaint strokes in
Figure 8
are solid in color with no variation—noteven the
slightest 
o variations. In order to avoid detection whenediting an image, an experienced proessional will need to mimicthe noise to match the document. One common method used is toaccess the
Add Noise
lter ound on the Photoshop
Filter
menu. This was not done in the Obama PDF le. I this was a legitimatecolor scan, noise would be consistently displayed throughout theentire document.
Bitmap (or Aliasing) v Anti-aliasing
Figure 9
ofers a visual explanation o 
aliasing
(or
bitmap
text)contrasted with
anti-aliasing
. Notice that
aliasing
is the visualstair-stepping o edges that occurs in an image which yields a jagged edge.
 Anti-aliasing
is the smoothing o jagged edgesin digital images by averaging the colors o the pixels at theboundary edges.Also notice the transition o pixel colors that occur in
Figure 8
 where contrast colors bump up next to each other. This colortransition (averaging o color pixels) makes the lines appearsmooth when viewed at a normal viewing level. Without
anti-aliasing
to soten this line edge transition o colors, images willhave a choppy jagged edge quality (
aliasing
or
bitmapped 
quality).
 Anti-aliasing
is either applied globally (to an entire image) duringscanning—or not at all.
Figure 10
is a perect example o an inconsistency that occurs withimage manipulation. The numerical characters
064
seen in theFigure are all aliased or
bitmapped 
, and the
1
is
anti-aliased 
aswell as containing
noise
.A color scan would produce anti-aliased results universally. Whileit is possible to use a bitmap setting when scanning, the resultswould create a black and white image—
no color present 
. A bitmapsetting would turn every pixel to
on
or
of 
white
or
black 
. So i abitmap setting was used in a scan, then there shouldn’t be a colorbackground, along with varying colors in the text outside thegrayscale range? All text color values have green tone values—notblack or grayscale.
