Washington, Apr 30 (ANI): A leading software expert has vouched for the authenticity of US President Barack Obama's birth certificate posted online by the White House, after his opponents raised doubts that it might have been altered or might be a fake.
The doubters said Adobe Illustrator, the premier program for computer graphic artists, revealed nine separate layers of the document, a finding they say could be proof that Obama's birth certificate might have been altered, Fox News reports.
Jean-Claude Tremblay, a leading software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, who has years of experience working with and teaching Adobe Illustrator, however rejected all allegations
You should not be so suspicious about this. The layers cited by doubters are evidence of the use of common, off-the-shelf scanning software not evidence of a forgery, Tremblay said.
Earlier, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had said she appreciated US billionaire Donald Trump for using his resources and paying researchers to confirm Obama's birthplace.
"I appreciate that Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something that so interests him and many Americans. He's not just throwing stones from the sidelines, he's digging in, he's paying for researchers," Palin had said.
"I think that he (Obama) was born in Hawaii because there was a birth announcement put in the newspaper, but obviously there's something there that the president doesn't want people to see on that birth certificate. He's going to great lengths to make sure it isn't shown. And that's kind of perplexing for a lot of people," she added. (ANI)
