From Pamela Geller's column at WorldNetDaily:
In the summer of 2009, I wrote this about the birth-certificate controversy: "I suspect that the administration has a hot little document that will wash away Obama's sins and make the concern about this issue look silly. … In what could be considered a psyop on the American people, the birth-certificate issue is being used to smear the Republicans in general as 'birthers,' conspiracy nuts who have given themselves over to right-wing nuttery."
In the aftermath of Wednesday's release of Obama's ostensible "long form," we have seen just that scenario unfolding.
They appear in a column titled "An illegitimate child, an illegitimate president," which makes the spurious legal argument that Obama is still "disqualified to serve as president of the United States" because his father was Kenyan, and thus conferred British Commonwealth citizenship to his son with a sprinkle of fairy dust. Let's not pay too much attention to anything published in WND, but Geller is a
who appears fairly frequently on Fox News; she actually danced around the ideas in this column on the network after the certificate was released.
