The headline is incorrect. The White House did not release his original birth certificate or even an accurate photocopy. Comparison of the Obama certificate with that of the Nordyke twins from the same hospital and one day different shows that the Obama certificate is overlayed on the same green checked background as his certification of life birth. No such pattern is seen in an authentic birth certificate from that hospital and that time period. It therefore cannot be a literal copy of the original. Magnification of the text shows that the green check pattern tends to disappear behind the letters.

It's a certified copy issued by the State Registrar. Do we need any more proof of what we've known all along? The only reason the certificate looks different is that this particular copy was printed a few days ago! (talk)03:58, 28 April 2011

No matter what they release, there are people who won't believe it. They could invent a time machine and send Sarah Palin back in time to witness Obama's birth and they still wouldn't believe her if she told them. It's not about the truth, it's about keeping anyone who isn't a white conservative out of the White House using whatever remotely possible arguments are available. (talk)07:14, 28 April 2011

You want more proof? Then go to Hawaii and request your own, it's 'only' public record, anyone can get a copy.
Maybe that one will have the checkered [definitely not "checked", or maybe you're speaking a language I'm not aware of] background/pattern you're so desperately looking for. ;-)
