David Weigel notes that G. Gordon Liddy claimed President Obama was born in Kenya during an interview with Richard Wolffe Thursday. Liddy claimed that the copy of Obama's birth certificate seen on the internet is fake.


LIDDY: Why is it redacted? Why is it redacted?

WOLFFE: I haven’t seen any redactions.

LIDDY: The one that’s on the internet, that’s the one that I’ve seen, and that one has the serial number redacted.

WOLFFE: I have no idea. I’ve seen one with serial numbers on it and everything. So I don’t know what the problem is here. Do you have an idea of where he was born if it wasn’t in Hawaii?

LIDDY: Yeah, there’s an affidavit from his grandmother that says that she observed the birth in Mombassa, Kenya.

WOLFFE: Yeah. You know, I just think that that is completely false.
