I’ve tried to remain open-minded about the true birthplace of our nation’s 44th president, but it’s impossible to sit comfortably ‘on the fence’, when online, archived articles undergo sudden revision.
Case in point, an article from January, 2006 that appeared in the Honolulu Advertiser’s online version. Here’s a link to the current version of the article. I happened to read this very article yesterday and made both a printed, pdf version of the article and a screen capture of the now altered section.

So, what’s the deal, huh? Shouldn’t the paper have titled this edited version as an Update with an explanation? If President Obama truly has the original birth certificate, why not just produce it?
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why the insertion of ‘private’ into the company name helps with any potential legal action. If I understand California regulations, it is unlawful to use the word ‘police’ in the name of any private investigative agency.
Note also that the company’s ‘logo’ has changed from the Serbian coat of arms (though it’s still in the Flash movie at the top) to an Eagle. Becky Shay told KULR8 News that the logo change was simply “the quickest thing he could to diffuse [sic] tension”. Shay claimed to have no knowledge of any litigation pending from the Serbian consulate.
By the way, today’s the firs time I’ve noticed the music playing in a small Flash window beneath the logo — Ravel’s ‘Bolero’. Interesting.
Surprisingly, the contract between APF (oops, I guess that’s APPF now) and Two Rivers Authority is still on the table, and a town meeting is scheduled for this afternoon (Monday, Oct. 5) at 3:00 pm at Hardin City Hall.
