72. I'm sorry, but this makes no sense.
Didn't you see what just happened when Obama released the long-awaited "long form" birth certificate? The Obama-haters immediately declared it a forgery, offering long, tortured analyses of "layers" in the file, the paper, the border, the signatures, the words on it - basically, everything about it is phony to these nuts.

Do you truly not see that any photo that is released will be labeled a forgery by right-wing nutjobs over here, while also being used as a recruitment tool for what is left of al Qaeda over there?

Your post reads like something I would expect to see on Free Republic.
