Adobe engineer doubts Obama birth certificate
Gary Poyssick, an early employee of software giant Adobe System Inc., continues to maintain there is something “fishy” about the Obama long-form birth certificate released by the White House.
“What the White House released is not a simple scan,” Poyssick told WND. “Something digital came between the paper and the glass.”
Poyssick was at the San Jose-based tech company when it counted no more than 14 employees, and he continues to advise and write on Adobe software products
Poyssick, who today devotes his energies to running The Online Fisherman in Tampa, Fla., has written more than 50 titles about Adobe software, the printing industry, coding and programming, website development and workflow management.
His initial reaction was to declare the birth certificate an outright forgery.
“I could have done a much better replica myself, if the president had asked,” Poyssick told The Political Sandbox blog when the birth certificate first appeared and he opened the document in Adobe Illustrator. “The guy that did this is a bimbo in that he forgot to ‘flatten’ his works to soften the background edges so the fake letters blended, softly into the green paper.
Observing that the birth certificate document had multiple layers when opened in Adobe Illustrator, Poyssick was amazed the White House had released an electronic PDF file that had not been “flattened” so as to remove all evidence that it had been modified.
