While I have come to the firm and well-reasoned conclusion that Barack Obama is legally qualified to be President of the United States, him having been born a citizen of the US in the State of Hawaii in 1961, I am free to change my mind. This blog is dedicated to uncovering the truth, not supporting Barack Obama. Neither the Obama Campaign nor the Obama Administration had anything to do with this web site—I was just driving down the highway when the idea occurred to me. I can say what I want. I am my own man.
Some birthers are not at liberty. The first one that comes to mind is John Sampson, a former INS investigator who testified in Atlanta in the Farrar case for Orly Taitz. When Orly Taitz later attempted to have him testify in Indiana, he said that he was privy to information from the Cold Case Posse that he could not disclose, and therefore he was not at liberty to be placed under oath and to subject himself to questions.
The next one that comes to mind is Reed Hayes. Hayes is a handwriting expert who wrote a report for Mike Zullo (Hayes said Zullo, not the CCP, was his client) and because Zullo had asked him to, he was not at liberty to discuss his findings.
Today, I asked Garrett Papit, who wrote a report for the Cold Case Posse, to comment on his report now that it appears to have been fatally undermined by the recent investigation into the characteristics of PDF files produced by certain Xerox office machines that do things Papit said were unheard of. I offered Papit the opportunity to publish a guest article here. Even though the Xerox information has been made available for weeks, this is what Papit said:
Unfortunately I’m not at liberty to discuss it at this point. But sit tight. It will be covered in due time. … Once I am allowed to discuss it I will be more than happy to address your points.
Conspiracy theories are a trap. Once somebody gets sucked into that way of thinking, they lose their ability to think something else. It’s all about defending the theory, not finding the truth. And once somebody gets tied up with Mike Zullo, it appears that they even lose the liberty of speaking for themselves.
